SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Sir Yorki came to us as an owner surrender due to breathing and wheezing issues that the owner did not have the resources to care for him. In addition, the owner has medical problems of their own and is not physically well enough to care for Sir Yorki. It was reported by the owner that Sir Yorki has been around children of all ages and is very relaxed and playful around them. Around other dogs Sir Yorki is alert initially, but then become playful and exuberant around them. He is not bother when someone attempts to take away his food, toys or treats.
Sir Yorki came into the behavior room with soft and loose body language. He was interested in socializing with the assessor as well with friendly body language. Sir Yorki allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining relaxed and soft body language. During the tag interaction Sir Yorki followed the assessor excitedly with soft body language. He only displayed minimal interest in the toy on this portion of the assessment. We believe that Sir Yorki can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.

When off leash with other dogs, Sir Yorki greets with high energy but does not solicit play or further interactions. He interacts extensively with the handler and is tolerant of the other dogs in general.
4/13 update: Sir Yorki is anxious today, pacing back and forth in the pens. He is not comfortable with pushy behavior or solicitations and will correct other dogs appropriately.
4/14 update: Sir Yorki was more relaxed today but still does not interact with the other dogs.
