On 3/13/2015 Luna came to us as owner surrendered. According to the owner Luna is playful with children, gets along with strangers, and has no bite history. The owner also claims Luna tends to play rough with children and other dogs. The Assistant’s observations: Friendly and walked well on leash to the assessment area. During the assessment Luna appeared calm and friendly. She allowed the Assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items and accepted handling well. Luna showed no interest for food and minimal interest for toys. When presented with a rawhide Luna appeared fearful of the “assess-a-hand”. When the Assessor attempted to push on Luna’s face with the assess-a-hand, she appeared fearful dropping the rawhide and quickly backing away. No other behavior issues/no aggression noted. Although Luna did well on the assessment, she appeared somewhat fearful of the assess-a-hand. In addition, the former owner’s claims Luna plays rough with other dogs (not observed during the assessment) and children must be taken into consideration. It is the recommendation of the Behavior Department Luna may be adopted by an experienced owner with no children.
