A volunteer writes: So quiet in his kennel, easily leashed, his serious face hides a soft, gentle, tail waggy boy, who becomes a wiggle butt when meeting new people! Carl seems housetrained, has lovely leash manners and didn’t mind being tethered for photos, posing like a pro. He tilts his head when I make kissy noises at him, and as serious as his face is how can you take this gorgeous guy too seriously when he has that kissable pink spot on his lower lip? Carl is stunning in his sleek grey coat, he’s the perfect weight for his size, and as he lays his head in my lap for some petting I discover that “tickle spot” that gets his back leg going! Too funny and passersby stopped to laugh with us. His intake notes say he has “a sweet demeanor and asks for affection” and that perfectly describes him. As we walked Carl stopped to watch a bird bouncing on the sidewalk, just curious, no pulling, and we moved on. Sitting as soon as he saw a treat in my hand he gently takes it from my fingers. A calm, gentle, low key boy Carl can get a bit excited with some hugs and kisses but is easily told no and he listens. Off leash in the backyard he chases a ball but doesn’t retrieve, happiest coming over to me for more cuddles. I fell in love with this handsome, sweet dog and know that you will too. Come meet him today.
Carl pulls a bit on leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthy (Light). Carl was excited and mouthy during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He engages in play, body is loose and wiggly, mouth open. He took the toy with a soft body language. Carl did not show any concern during the behavior assessment; he is a bit active dog he needs some exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor.
Tag: 2. Dog assumes play position and joins the game.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. he does not place his body between you and the toy.
When off leash with other dogs, Carl greets politely, however becomes increasingly sexually motivated- eventually leading up to attempting to mount.
