Summary: During the handling assessment Lamia was a bit fearful. She kept a low body posture, with her tail tucked. Though a bit distracted, Lamia did allow all handling.
Lamia engages in gentle play with both male and female dogs. She is nervous at times and will offer a correction when she is overwhelmed. She solicits attention, by persistently placing her muzzle on the other dogâ€™s face. Lamia was brought in as a stray with another dog. The Behavior Department recommends that Lamia be placed in a home with resident dogs that are respectful and matches her gentle play style.

EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments:
Though observed to be human-social, Lamia may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Maxine to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.
