Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. Dog does not place his/her body between you and the toy.
Summary: Treasure approached the assessor with a soft body. She appeared a bit anxious in the assessment room, panting and having a tucked tail. She solicited attention from the assessor by leaning into the assessor and stayed close by throughout the assessment. She allowed all handling.
PLAY GROUP :
Based on behavior observed int he care center, Treasure may be most compatible with other dogs that are polite and calm. Treasure is respectful and tolerant when greeting other calm dogs.
6/15: When introduced off leash to a male greeter dog, Treasure ignores him and explores the pen.
6/16-17: Treasure explores the yard, keeping mostly to herself, but allows greeting.
6/18: Treasure is polite when greeting other dogs.
6/19: Treasure approaches and greets all.
Date of initial: 15-Jun-2018
Summary: Treasure was a bit tense but allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Treasure so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Potential challenges: Anxiety
Potential challenges comments: Anxiety: Treasure appears anxious in the care center, panting heavily and whining. We have no history on her in a home, so we do not know if this behavior will be present outside of the care center. If it does occur, we recommend giving her puzzle toys, long walks, and things to do to relieve her anxiety. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only should be used.
