A staff member writes:Sky has her head in the clouds. She is quite the beauty and has eyes that will make you fall in love. On approach she wags her tail, sits and waited patiently for me to take her out. Once outside of the kennel, Sky walks very well and enjoys the stroll. Once inside the pen, Sky follows as I walk around. We engage in play with some tennis balls and she enjoyed some treats, she knows how to sit on command. Sky loves to be rubbed and scratched, it makes her feel all the love in the world. She is well-manned around people she feels comfortable with. She takes some pretty photographs as well. Sky is the perfect candidate for a best friend. She would do better with an experienced dog owner and to be the only pet in the home. She is a doll and a great buddy to hang around with; I love to see her sweet face at BACC , but I would love it even more to see her in her forever home, with a special someone. Come see Sky at BACC today !

Spayed female, stray
Previously lived with: Unknown
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.

Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Summary: During the handling assessment Sky showed no concerning behavior. She was relaxed, and calm.
When off leash at the Care Center, Sky immediately barked and lunged while snapping, when greeting a novel male. A muzzle was placed on Sky before she was introduced off leash. Once in the pen, Sky maintained a tense posture, allowed the helper dog to greet her briefly but then became distracted by the muzzle, persistently pawing at it. Star was brought in as a stray so her past behavior around other dogs is unknown. Due to the reactive displayed towards novel dogs while here at the Care Center, the Behavior Department recommends that Sky be the only resident dog at this time. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Hazel associate dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats.
During intake Sky was very sweet and allowed all handling. During intake, Sky had a loose and wiggly. She allowed counselor to approach and scan her with no change in behavior or posture.

Sky displayed medium energy and movement throughout assessment. She will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the (behaviors outlined below).
_X_ Single-pet home & Recommend no dog parks: Due to the concerning behaviors that Sky has shown during playgroup (see GROUPBEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Sky should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog. The Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized in a more controlled setting until her behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed.
