Rey came into our center after she was found as a stray. During intake, Rey was stressed, shivering and tense with wide eyes but allowed all handling. Rey was uncomfortable during positioning for Look item, but once positioned she allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, tense. Rey stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, mouth closed, ears neutral. She turned towards assessor’s hand during Tag game, stopped following after second pass. Rey yelped and turned her head towards assessor’s hand on positioning for Squeeze item, tried to bite. Rey kept a firm grip on Toy with her paws, body loose. When off leash with other dogs, Rey offers minor correction for approach. Rey must be placed with a New Hope partner.
