It was mentioned that Mocha is successfully housebroken, and she isn’t bothered when the owner touched her food while eating, or when toys and bones were taken from her mouth. At intake it was noted that Mocha was very nervous and tense, while remaining close to her owner. During SAFER Mocha became tense and barked at the assessor at first, but when a slower introduction was made, Mocha allowed an approach and the assessor and collar her. She was a bit tense for some handling, but allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue. She was fearful and unresponsive during the tag interaction, and was not interested in any of the resource items. Mocha becomes uncomfortable with sudden movements and needs time to adjust to new environments, so The department feels a home with erratically-moving or pushy children may be intimidating for Mocha, so an experienced adopter without children is recommended, as well as a slow approach for introductions. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.
