Summary: Pluto was a bit tense at times during his assessment, especially during up close handling portions, but he allowed all handling.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
During his initial medical exam, Pluto was tense.
We have no history on Pluto so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a low level of energy.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_X_Fearful (Pluto is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Pluto the option to walk away from any social interaction. Pluto should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Pluto’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Pluto would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.)
