Good w/dogs: She lived with another dog. At the shelter we did an intro with another dog in separate kennel runs. She was a bit reactive, hackles up and barring teeth. But within a few minutes she was calm and the two dogs could care less about each other. Taking it slow and will be doing more dog intros with Leah.

Training: ? Does know sit! She looks for direction and wants to learn.

Comments: HAWS observation: Leah did show some anxiety when I left the room for a minute to go get her a new collar. She was jumping on the door and scratching the glass repetitively and anxiously crying. When I came back, she did stop and we engaged in some play. She offered me some play bows and enjoyed chasing and playing tug with a toy. She was great on leash and enjoys the outdoors, until she saw a bird take flight. Then she took flight! Leah is a very energetic young dog and needs a job to do. She will look for direction from you, very smart and she also will rest her chin in your hand. This is great when working on handling with her. She would probably do amazing in some sort of sport. Ex. agility or Disc Dog (where you throw a frisbee) and she would make a great hiking buddy. She needs a home where someone will have time to give Leah what she needs.

Vet notes: Called vet (Greenfield) Healthy Paws for more info before intake. UTD with rabies and distemper. Leah is a "full sedation" dog at the vet clinic for being anxious and a "fear biter" for nail trims. Muzzled for everyone's safety. Has not bitten anyone and friendly otherwise, but has handling sensitivities.
