Blueberry is a sweet senior shepherd home looking for a forever home to live out her sunset years. Blue could use a little help in the diet department losing some of her retirement weight. Blueberry can be a bit cranky with young kids and would prefer a home without little ones.

AGE RESTRICTION
History:
- Surrendered for not getting along with young children in home
- Resource guards toys, treats, food from children
- House-trained
- Knows sit, lay down, stay, and shake a paw
- Nervous at the vet, muzzled
- Chases, plays roughly with cats

Behaviour observed in shelter:
- Social with strangers
- Excitable and pushy with other dogs
- Nervous but tolerant of medical handling

Recommendations:
- Continued socialization to help dog generalize and positive reinforcement training to counter-condition fear-based behaviours; reward dog for confident behaviours when introduced to strangers and other novel stimuli
- Monitor interactions with children to ensure they remain appropriate, reward positive interactions. Teach children appropriate boundaries (e.g. not handling dogs food or other potential high value items)
- Discourage resource guarding by trading resources for higher value items in order to create a positive association with approaching valued resources
