EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
No young children (under 5)
Due to Blueberry’s response to some of the SAFER handling items, we feel he may be intimidated by small children.
Potential challenges comments:
Blueberry takes some time to warm up to new people, though he shows good coping skills when uncomfortable. In-care notes that he shies away from quick movements. We feel he will do best with an adopter prepared to allow him to warm up to new people and new environments slowly. Use of treats and other rewards will help to make new experiences positive.
