Gia arrived at our center on 5/10/2015 as a stray. She was nervous upon intake but warmed up to admissions counselor once approached slowly. Gia walked nicely on her relief walk, not pulling. She held gaze during Look item for three full seconds. Gia accepted touch for Sensitivity item with tail down and ears back, but stood still and allowed the handling. She followed at the end of leash during Tag item, but did not engage in play. She settled instantly at the end of game. Gia licked assessor’s hand during both Squeeze attempts, but did not pull her paw back. She had minimal interest in food, licking it before turning away. She had no interest in Toy at all, and minimal interest in rawhide. During social time, Gia play bows to solicit play from the other dogs. The Behavior Team feels Gia would do well in an Average home.
