Summary: Enchilada was a bit shy at first and took a minute to warm to the handlers. Once she warmed up, she became playful and social. She allowed all handling on her assessment.
3/15: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Enchilada greets with a tense body and high flagging tail. She becomes aroused when solicited with chase and follows with a tense body and vocalization.
We have no history on Enchilada so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below)
_X_Fearful (Though observed to be human-social, Enchilada may need time to warm up to the handler as she sometimes presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Enchilada to interact at her own pace, force-free, reward based traing is advised when introducting her to new/unfamiliar situations.)
