A volunteer writes: Sweet Paige is a staff favorite–every time we walk together, at least 1 or 2 staff will stop and squeal “Hi Paige!!!!” Paige always responds with plenty of tail wags, kisses, and perhaps a friendly jump up to lick the face. Paige is good at walking on a leash, curious about squeaky toys (even if she’s not always sure what to do with them), and seems to be housetrained. Paige can sit very well for treats–in fact, she gets so serious when the treats come out that I suspect she could be trained to do a lot of tricks for treats! When off-leash in our play area, Paige immediately came over to me to give me licks on the face. She wanders around for a minute or two, but always ends up sitting on the floor right by my side. Eventually, she lays down next to me– she is so sweet! I can tell that this gentle, friendly girl would be a loyal companion to whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Please come and see her at the Brooklyn ACC today.

Summary: Paige was sweet, and playful. She was social towards the assessor, and allowed all handling.
When off leash at the Care Center, Paige engaged in gentle bouncy play in a group of calm male and female dogs. She is tolerant of sexually motivated males, but will correct when they become persistent. Page was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Paige be placed in a home with a resident dog that matches her gentle play style.
8/05: Page greets a novel male dog with a low, loose and wiggly body. Once inside the pen she solicits play with bouncy bows and stop/start.
8/06-08: Paige engaged in gentle bouncy play in a group of calm male and female dogs. She was tolerant of a sexually motivated male, but will correct him when he becomes persistent.
During intake Paige had a loose body, jumping and licking the counselor. She allowed the counselor to collar her and take her picture with no problems.
During the initial examination Paige was friendly, and allowed. She displayed a loose body, and wagging her tail.
We have no history on Paige so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment; however, Paige is a young, social dog. So, we recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
