Pryncess was very fearful and trembling when entering the assessment, once given a few minutes to relax and warm up, she would approach the assessor with a trembling body when coaxed. She allowed all handling to be conducted but remained somewhat fearful and nervous. She had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. Pryncess did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. She had no interest in toys or rawhide.
Pryncess was surrendered to the care center by her owner of 9 years due to allergies; upon intake, Pryncess allowed all handling to be conducted with ease. Her owners reported that Pryncess is friendly and outgoing toward strangers and lived with a 3 & 7 year old children who she is relaxed, gentle and exuberant at times during play with. It was also reported that she is scared of thunder and fireworks and will urinate from fear. Her owners stated she is unbothered when her food bowl is moved/ touched. She was described by her owners as friendly, affectionate, mellow and rarely barks with medium activity level and is reportedly well behaved when left alone. The Behavior Department recommends Pryncess be placed with an experienced adopter that understands Pryncess appears to be fearful in new situations and should be allowed to warm up to new people and environments at her own pace.
