Snow Cone is a black and white American Pit Bull Terrier mix that was found on the street with her companion Waffle Come (A1035742). The finder said that they were friendly and liked to follow him around. At intake, Snow had a tucked tail and a tense body and was nervous of being handled and would move out of the way and flinch to avoid the counselor touching her. She warmed up a bit towards the end of the intake and had relaxed her body. She allowed all handling by the counselor and allowed the counselor to scan and collar her.
Group Behavior: 5/12
When off leash with other dogs, Snow Cone is very shy and hesitant to approach the adult helper dog. He approaches to greet once but spends the rest of time in the yard exploring and does not engage
