Meet Pearl!! Pearl may have only just come in to the care center, but she has already won the hearts of everyone she’s met. The medical staff adore her, and it’s easy to see why. Pearl is so happy and eager to make friends with all! Pearl does have an open pyometra, and is a bit underweight. She will need surgery for her pyo, and lots of food to fatten her up! Please pull this sweet girl from MACC today!!

Pearl walks calmly on leash. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Pearl was calm and relaxed when playing tag with assessor. She growled and bit the assess-a-hand during the food bowl test. Pearl was not interested in toys or rawhide. She does not approach other dog, attempts to exit.
Pearl may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address this food guarding behavior. In addition to food behavior modification protocol we recommend teaching Pearl “Drop It” and trade-up games. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
