07/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I talk to junior for a while in his cage. He slowly comes over to me with his paw raised. After a little while he feels confident enough to come out to go for a walk. He has these beautiful big brown eye that look up at you with such soul. He walks nicely on his leash curious of his environment. He doesn’t bother with other dogs as we pass, just looks up at them. I take him in the backyard and play chase with him and he plays easily with me. I go into all the different pens and he follows me into every one at my side. He is a sensitive sweet guy. Another volunteer writes: Quiet in his kennel and delighted to join me for a walk, Junior peed for so long as soon as we were outside I thought he’d topple over! I think I can safely say Junior is housetrained. He’s elegant, with chiseled features, a gorgeous shiny coat, and perfect physique. A bit camera shy, it’s hard to get good pictures to show off how stunning he is, so you may need to meet him yourself to find out. Not interested in toys or my treats, he was happy checking out a play group in an adjoining pen, waiting his turn. (As of this writing he has not yet been in group.) Alert and in tune to his surroundings, Junior saves his affection for his special person and is hoping to meet that person soon. Gorgeous as if carved out of the finest marble, Junior is hoping to meet you today, and be renamed something befitting this handsome fellow.

He had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. Junior was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. He does not approach other dog, attempts to exit. Junior is fearful of the shelter noises and tries to hide behind the handler.
