Icicle was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on their behavior history or tendencies in their previous home. During intake, she was friendly and outgoing, allowing all handling to be conducted.
Observed Behavior – very sweet. Easily handle-able. Did well for all medical handling and procedures
Standing in back of kennel as I approach, ears forward and tail raised. She walks through her portal as I reach towards her, then pokes her head back through and approaches me. Allows petting along her head and body while leaning in, tail raised. Vocalizes each time my hand passes along her lower back. Social and sweet, a bit unsure after first day. May have potential to become overstimulated.
Lying in cubby with a neutral body, head resting on kennel floor. She raises her head as I open the cubby door and leans away from me as I reach towards her, ears tilting and eyes squinting shut. She tolerates petting along her head and body while turning her head to watch my hand, ears remaining flat. Not interested in treats at the moment. Nervous, uncomfortable with interaction today. Needs more time to adjust.
