A staff member writes: Suzie G is a friendly, social, and energetic pup. Suzie is also deaf! This pup would do best in a home with experienced dog owners as she is mouthy when she gets excited. Suzie plays well with other dogs in playgroup. Meet Suzie G and see why she is so special.
Suzie G came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Suzie G solicited attention with her tail wagging, she allowed all handling. During SAFER Suzie G came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, she was friendly, social and very playful towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Suzie G joins the game and becomes mouthy with mild pressure during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Suzie G was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Suzie G can be somewhat rough during play and consistently jumps on the assessor strongly throughout the entire assessment and was difficult to position. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter with no young children.
