When off leash with other dogs Suzy Q is social and playful. She offers barks at the gate as well as play bows in anticipation for play. She is tolerant of sexual behavior.
SAFER: EXPERIENCED HOME
Suzie Q came into the care center as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Suzie Q was very sociable and attention seeking. She allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue, and was playful during the tag interaction. During the resources portion of the assessment Suzy Q was a bit resistant when pushed out of the food bowl, but she lifted her head after a bit of pressure was applied to her cheek. She was not interested in the toy items, and was easy to handle when engaged with the rawhide. Suzy Q did show some concerns on the dog-dog item; rushes in towards the helper dog hard barking and growling. Due to this behavior the department feels Suzy Q would be best suited for an experienced adopter who is able to safely manage and provide behavior modification work to address the behavior displayed.
