IN MA! Scout is in MA and must be adopted locally to MA area, ideally to a home w/ a yard
Scout came in as a 1y 40lb stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Scout was friendly and allowed all handling. During SAFER Scout came into the assessment room loose and
wiggly, he was friendly and social towards the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Scout joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Scout was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Scout appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an "Average" adopter. He is great w/ other dogs, betting ok w/ cats and kids as well.
Look: 1. Dog's eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor's cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog's mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft 'popping' of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play ends.

Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.
Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!
