Calypso came to our center after being found wandering on the beach. She allowed all handling during intake. Calypso walked nicely on leash for her relief walk, no pulling. She held gaze for three full seconds during Look item with soft body. Calypso stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item with her tail down and lip long. Tag game was skipped due to her medical limitations. During flank Squeeze, Calypso slowly blinked with her tail down and ears back, accepting the squeeze both times. She calmly followed the food dish and moved her face once assess-a-hand was applied to her cheek. Calypso became very interested in Toy item, holding it with a firm grip and slightly stiffening her body. She traded the toy for some food. She also had interest in the rawhide, holding it with a firm grip and not releasing it, but her body fluctuated between neutral and slightly stiff, also requiring food as a trade in order to relinquish. The Behavior Team feels due to her potential to possibly become possessive regarding resources, Calypso would do best with an Experienced adopter.
