Z Cassie Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Senior Female in Miami, Florida

My story
Cassie, female, spayed, 9 yr old mix breed bully.  Cassie’s ideal home is adult only, quiet home with a yard OR an apartment with ground access (direct access to outside).    Cassie was evaluated by a professional dog trainer with feedback below: Positive indicators:

Very social/affectionate with humans she knows and trusts Neutral (non reactive) to strangers passing in close range while on leash Showed clear avoidance behavior when she doesn’t want to be interacted with (averted eyes, turned body, ground sniffing)  House broken & healthy  Loves the water/swimming  Has shown good bite inhibition during low level bite incidents (air snap, low pressure contact) 

Negative indicators: 

Not safe to live with small children (growl/snap with contact, no punctures to date)  Will require go-slow treatment for vet care (growl/snap with contact, no punctures to date) Reactive to dogs on leash < 50 feet  Dog aggressive 

History: 

Acquired from shelter as a young dog.  Has lived her life in an adult only home where she warms up to strangers with the right introduction  Previous injury as a puppy to ACL/PCL, completely healed.  Dog can be sensitive to rear legs being touched due to previous injury  Needs to be muzzled at vet for nail trims (very fearful)  More fearful towards men than women  Will bark/alert when strangers enter the home or come in close proximity to yard No longer enjoys companionship of other dogs due to her age, although frequented dog parks as a young dog.  Has shown aggression (growl/snap) on multiple occasions when baby has come too close, reached for her, or touched her unexpectedly Management has become extremely difficult for family, causing Cassie to be completely isolated at this point to prevent any further bite incidents to child in home Worst case scenario a kennel can be built in yard to keep Cassie secure, but that is no real quality of life for this dog
