**SAFER: AVERAGE HOME**
Dogee previously lived with two adults and has been around children. According to the owner Dogee is only scared of children if they appear nervous, but she was respectful and tolerant around everyone in the household. Dogee did not live with other dogs, but when around them she was said to be relaxed and tolerant. Dogee was described as quiet, mellow, and her activity level is low. It was noted that she isn’t bothered when someone touches her food, treats, or bones and she is well behaved when left home alone.
At intake it was noted that Dogee had a loose body posture and allowed all handling but an Admissions Counselor. During SAFER Dogee was relaxed when interacting with the assessor, but was not very attention seeking. She allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue, and was relaxed during the tag interaction. Dogee was not interested in any of the resources items as they were presented to her, and was more interested in exiting the room. Dogee appears to be sociable and was tolerant of all handling, so Dogee can be suitable for an “Average” experienced adopter, but according to the owner she may be timid around children who are nervous, so we recommend a thorough interaction for any home with young kids before adoption.
