DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash at the Care Center, Orion enjoys engaging in gentle play with male and female dogs. He avoids high energy play and is tolerant of mounting and assertive posturing. Orion was brought in as a stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Orion be placed with resident dogs that match his gentle play style
During his medical examination, Orion was playful and allowed all handling.
We have no history on Orion so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)

Orion greets the female helper with a soft, wiggly body. He solicits gentle play with bows and bounces and is tolerant of the other dog’s assertive posturing- stiffening her posture and chin-over.
Orion was used as a social helper dog today. He greeted each dog with a neutral calm body and solicited gentle bouncy play, but avoided rowdy, high energy play. He was tolerant of a larger male mounting him.
Orion solicits gentle play, occasionally mounting. He responds well to handler interruptions and continues to play.
