friendly confident and affectionate dog In the care center Flash has been active and enthusiastic He may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when he becomes overstimulated Flash will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised RECOMMENDATIONS Experienced adopter adult-only home _X_ No children under 13- While Flash showed no issues with the children in the home he has shown a number of warning and distance-increasing behaviors to different handling triggers Due to these behaviors we recommend an experienced adopter and an adult-only home Potential challenges _X_ Fearful-Flash is timid with new people He manages his stress well and has not escalated from a growl but he does need time to warm up to new people He does best with a slow approach and should be permitted to greet new people at his own pace and to initiate interaction rather than being approached and pet immediately by a new person so he has time to adjust and become comfortable before he is handled He should be spoken to softly and gently _X_ Anxiety- Flash has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center tense and attempts to exit continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside This behavior was not reported at intake the owner profile does not note anxiety so we cannot be certain whether this behavior will continue in a future home or whether it is specific to the shelter environment 09072017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR When off leash at the Care Center
