A volunteer writes:
KNOWN HISTORY: None
Unaltered female, stray
Other notes: Sauerkraut initially responded to the finder by growling and snapping, but with a slow approach Sauerkraut warmed up and allowed the finder to handle her.
Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body a bit tense; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, mouth closed, slight lip lick.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, a bit distracted, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game, jumps up lightly and affectionately.
Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed
Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, then walks away.
Summary: Sauerkraut took a few days to warm up here at the center, but warmed up significantly outside in playgroup. She allowed all handling, may benefit from a slow approach/slow introduction.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
1/12: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Sauerkraut is reserved and mostly keeps to herself.
During her initial medical exam Sauerkraut was tense but allowed all handling and restraint without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_X_Fearful: Sauerkraut seems to warm up through play (with dogs and with humans), though she is initially reserved with new people. She does best with a slow approach and should be permitted to initiate interactions with new people.
