Tag: 1.. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins.

Toy 1: No interest.
Summary: Raf was friendly and very playful towards the assessor, he displayed no concern.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Raf’s previous guarding reported that he lived with a small dog and was respectful of him. When off leash at the Care Center, Raf greets the female helper with an alert posture- leaning forward and on his tip-toes and whimpers a little. He becomes sexually motivated- genital sniffing and licking- and attempts to mount several times and persists this behavior even after being interrupted by handlers. Raf displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a male dog. He is social, checking in on the other male often as he explores the pen.
During his medical examination, Raf was friendly and allowed all handling.
Raf displays a very high activity level in the care center in line with what his previous owner reports. We recommend providing daily mental and physical stimulation as an outlet to direct his energy.
