A volunteer writes:
Handsome Lumos is a perfect gentleman in his kennel, waiting his turn and wagging his tail when he realizes he’s next! He pulls hard to get out the door where he goes potty immediately indicating he’s likely housetrained. He’s a bit too thin, and his feet show signs of too many hours of being crated, nonetheless he’s an affectionate, friendly dog whose tail is always softly wagging. In the park the squirrels are out and about and Lumos pulls toward them thinking it might be fun to play. Sorry Lumos! Off leash in the back yard Lumos is thrilled when other dogs come by to say hello, getting excited at the prospect of a play date. Super affectionate, giving hugs and kisses, Lumos is happy to snuggle close, and then sit down next to me to wait for a treat. Not interested in a tossed ball, he’s simply content to snuggle, explore the pen, enjoy a treat and greet passing dogs. Rocking his behavior assessment got him moved into adoptions immediately, where he’s waiting for you to come and meet him. Ask for him today.
This dog is good for an AVERAGE home!
Lumos pulls a bit on leash and may be housetrained – toileted immediately once outside. Lumos greeted the assessor by jumping up with a soft and wiggly body. He maintained soft body language during the handling items of the assessment. It was a bit difficult to push Lumos out of the food bowl; however he maintained soft body language. He showed no interest in toys or rawhides. Lumos approached the helper dog with soft, but confident body language.
Lumos has shown no concerning behaviors while at the care center. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
