Basic Information: Nori is a young tan and white female who was not spayed before coming into the shelter. She has been in the home for one year and her owner had to surrender due to lack of time to care for her. She has no known health issues or injuries and has not seen a vet recently.
Socialization: Nori is friendly and outgoing with strangers, and approaches when they enter the home. She has spent time with young children and is playful and relaxed around them. She does have a very high energy level so sometimes she will jump and might be best in a home with older children. she plays exuberantly with everyone but is not aggressive. She has lived with a ca previously and liked to initiate play but the cat was not interested. She has not spent time with other dogs.
Behavior: Nori has no bite history and no resource guarding behaviors. If you try to take a toy away from her she will think you are playing and begins tug of war. She is not bothered by being pushed off the furniture or disturbed while sleeping. Her owner has bathed her before and stated she will struggle to get out but does not growl or snap at him. She has brushed him and trimmed her nails without any issues. She typically has not alert barked when someone approaches his door.
For a new family to know: Nori is friendly, affectionate, and playful with a very high energy level. She likes to follow her owner around and be near him when he is home. She likes to play with stuffed toys, squeaky toys and chew bones, as well as ropes. She will play chase, tug of war and “one sided” fetch. She has been an indoor dog, is crate trained, and eats dry food. She likes to eat Beggin strips as a treat. She is house trained to go on grass or dirt and is crated when left alone in the house. She knows the commands sit and come, and slow walks on a leash for exercise. Her owner will take her to a park and let her off leash, she will wander but come back when she is called.
Behavior during intake: Nori had a very loose body with counselor and jumped on her lap for attention. She elicited being pet and was licking counselor. She allowed for all handling and collaring with ease.
