Sunny is a stray Maltese mix. Finder stated that he was friendly and gentle. He wagged his tail when people pet him. He took treats from people and was very relaxed. Sunny would bark when left alone. Sunny was playful and gentle with their 2 year old son. Upon intake Sunny was soft and relaxed. He was curious and sniffed counselor’s hand. Sunny allowed to be scanned (negative), collared and photographed. He allowed counselor to pick him up and pet.
Safer: average home
Sunny came to us as a stray on 7/5/15. Upon intake it was reported that Sunny had soft and relaxed body language and allowed all handling. He was nervous when entering the behavior room, but let the assessor conduct all tactile assessment items without displaying any signs of aggression. He was distracted during the tag test and was more interested in the environment. He displayed no interest in any of the resource items on this portion of the assessment. When interacting with another dog on leash Sunny was a bit timid and had his tail above spine level. The behavior department believes that Sunny can go to an average adopter.
