Notes from evaluator: When I met Zoe she was focused on all the new pet smells in the shelter lobby. Once she knew I had treats she came to me for a treat. After about 15 mins, she solicited pets from me without treats. It took her a minute but nothing aggressive or concerning – just naturally slow to warm. Zoe took all the treats offered – on the floor and by hand – she had a very gentle mouth when taking the treat as well. I was able to pet her head, face, muzzle, rear and paws. She was aware of me doing so but had no negative reactions. Zoe would jump while walking on leash – she is a puppy still so wanted to play with the leash. She also did mouth a bit – but no biting down – only felt her mouth on my wrist without pressure.
Zoe was originally a stray – she was adopted 2 months ago and they brought her back due to potty training issues and her being an escape artist and getting out of a tether – and jumping a fence. She can jump a fence and escape a tether without the properly fitted martingale collar. She was wearing a harness that she backed herself out of we suspect. She has not soiled in the shelter crate since returning so potty training will likely be easy enough. Zoe is a doll! Smaller in size and very much a puppy but VERY trainable.
