A volunteer writes: Prince is definitely doggie royalty with his thick, soft brindle and white coat and the way he prances down the block. But if I were going to name this little guy, it would be Einstein for sure! He is super smart and pays close attention to whatever I’m doing. He’s crazy about treats and once he finds out I have them, he starts offering all sorts of behaviors to see what will earn him the goodies. Not jumping, Prince! Yes, sitting! Good boy! This guy seems like he’d be a dream to train and smart enough to learn tons of tricks. He’s very energetic and I’m sure he’d make a great running buddy or enjoy learning how to play fetch. And did I mention Prince is also sweet and affectionate and needs ZERO time to warm up. He’s a love bug right out the gate. You gotta meet him!

Unaltered male, Stray
Other notes: Upon intake Prince was slightly timid, but relaxed and approached counselor with soft body. Seeking attention, he allowed handling.

Summary: Prince was friendly and playful. He was social towards the assessor, and allowed all handling; Prince displayed no concerns.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Prince displays a play bow when greeting a novel female dog through the gate. He solicits and engages in high energy play and requires slight handler interruption to take appropriate play breaks.
Prince allowed all handling during his initial medical examination.
We have no history on Prince 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: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience).
