Beautiful AVERAGE Blue nose pittie! Flurite is a handsome blue pit with a wonderful disposition. We don’t know much about his background however, Flurite seems to be well socialized and likes playing with the other dogs in playgroup.
SAFER – AVERAGE HOME
Flurite came to our center as a stray. He walked nicely on leash for his relief walk and did not pull. Flurite held gaze for Look item for three full seconds with soft eyes and body. He accepted touch during Sensitivity item, leaning slightly in towards the assessor. Flurite followed at the end of leash for Tag item, but did not engage in play. He settled at the end of game right away and approached assessor. Flurite had no response to Squeeze item. he ceased eating and lifted his head when assess-a-hand approached the food bowl. Flurite had minimal interest in toy. He took it in his mouth briefly but then let go and walked away. Flurite kept a firm grip on rawhide with a loose, wiggly body and wagging tail. The Behavior Team feels Flurite would do best in an Average home.
