Penny was uncomfortable upon entering SAFER assessment area, whale eye, growling, tail tucked, would not allow collaring, body tense. Due to this all tactile portions of the assessment were skipped. Penny responded to the Squeak sound of the Toy and appeared interested, slowly approaching, but retreated when assess-a-hand was present. This may be due to environment as owner reports she loves to play with all types of toys, especially balls, may tear toys apart. Owner also reports Penny enjoys playing fetch and tug. She approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. Penny must be placed with a New Hope partner. She would do best with a very slow approach/slow introduction.
