Summary: Scarlett displayed no concerning behavior during her handling assessment.
During intake, Scarlett was relaxed and soft, allowed all handling.
During her initial medical exam, Scarlett allowed all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Scarlett so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Scarlett displays as a calm dog with a medium level of energy. Scarlett would benefit from daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend daily walks, runs, exercise, and play.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_x_- Timid – Scarlett may initially be cautious in a new environment, and need a brief moment to warm up. She may do best with a slow introduction, preferably with treats, and being spoken to in a soft, gentle voice.
