A volunteer writes:
Joining us with her housemate when their owner lost his home, Jonas is 6 years young and a total delight. A strange name for a girl, but Jonas means ‘gift from God’, or the Swedish meaning, Dove. Soft, meaningful names that suit our girl just fine. Easily leashed and happy to go out for a walk, she shows off her housetraining skills as well as her lovely leash manners. Her tail wags and she checks up often as we walk. When we stop to take some pictures she snuggles close and then rolls over for a belly rub. As if I didn’t love her enough already!! She sits on command, takes treats gently, wags her tail, makes soft eye contact and is all about love and affection. She seems to like other dogs wagging her tail appropriately at those we pass. She’s had several litters in her time, and her coat can use a little TLC to restore her to the breathtaking beauty she was in her prime. Calm, gentle, affectionate, a total snuggle girl, Jonas is looking for her forever snuggle buddy. Older means better; she’s over the puppy crazies, needs easy walks daily to maintain her girlish figure, and then will be happy to hunker down for some love. Ask to meet her today.

BEHAVIOR: BEGINNER HOME
Jonas walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Jonas was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Jonas took the toy and rawhide away with a soft body language. She approaches the helper dog with her body soft, ears relaxed, tail at spine level and lip long.
Jonas did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to a Beginner home.
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. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
