A staff member writes: When I first met Pretzel, I immediately fell in LOVE!. He caught my attention with that soft, sweet, innocent face expression. He has big, brown, beautiful eyes that just will make your heart melt. Since he has been at BACC, I’ve visted him non-stop. He loves to be rubbed and he loves to have all your attention! He loves to play and be hugged up on and he is so sweet that I look forward to seeing him first thing when I get here at work. He is a BESTFRIEND, with that beautiful face of his, he could make all your worries go away, and for that reason I look forward to seeing him find his forever home even more, because he deserves that second chance!!

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Pretzel is playful and sexually motivated with female dogs, but becomes stiff and low growls when greeting males. Pretzel was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Pretzel be placed with female dogs that match his gentle play style. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/17/17: During his medical examination, Pretzel was friendly and easy to handle. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Pretzel so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, 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: Experience(suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _x_ Recommend no dog parks: Due to Pretzel’s stiff body language when greeting male dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Pretzel only be socialized in a more controlled setting.
