Foxy is a Chocolate Lab approximately 4 years old. She has been with her owners since she was a pup. The surrender is due to her elderly owners no longer being able to accomodante her high energy. Foxy lived with adults, children, and a geriatric female. She is sweet and gentle with all, but her owners state she has so much high energy and her energy is too much for the family. She never guards her food bowl while she is eating, or her toys or bones. Her owner will wash her with buckets of water. She loves squeaky toys and will play with other dogs. She is potty tained, but sometimes will go to the bathroom in the home between the hours of 12am and 6am. Foxy enjoys it when her owner takes her a her mile and a half run twice a day and she has been training at an aglity course to burn extra energy. Foxy knows how to sit and is still working on other basic commands. She has never been crate trained. When unfamiliar people approach, she is quick to wag her tail and pull to greet them. She maintains a loose body and is ready to play. At intake, foxy could’t keep still she walked all around the room through out the whole intake. Her body was relaxed and she allowed all petting from the counselor and other staff members. She allowed the counselor to scan her for a chip and allowed the counselor to collar her. It was difficult only because Foxy wouldn’t stop moving.
SAFER: EXPERINECED HOME, NO CHILDREN
Foxy previously lived with adults and children; she is sweet and gentle with adults and children. The owners stated she has so much high energy; she is also potty trained. It was also mentioned when unfamiliar people approach she is quick to wag her tail and pull to greet them; she maintains a loose body and is ready to play. Foxy love to play with squeaky toys, she also knows the command “sit”.
Upon intake Foxy couldn’t keep still she walked all around the room throughout the intake, her body was relaxed and she allowed all petting from the counselor and other staff members. During SAFER she had a soft body with her ears relaxed and mouth open, tag-interaction she joins the game and approaching he assessor at the end. When both paw squeezes was attempted she didn’t respond showing no signs of aggression, food item she would eat faster and take bigger bites when the assess-a-hand was applied to her cheek. Toy item she displayed minimal interest and rawhide item her body was a bit stiff when the assess-a-hand was shown. Appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. Due to these behaviors the department feels Foxy can go to an experienced adopter with no children.

Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
