3-Legged Service Dog: My Evaluation of Vinny

How much can you get to know a dog in 2 hours?

How much can you get to know a dog in 2 hours? You’d be surprised! Not enough to make a judgment call on whether the dog would be a great service candidate or not, but that’s why Vinny the rescued tripod, tri-pi pittie is with me. So if I can’t determine if he’d make a good candidate in that amount of time, what’s the point? 🤔

It’s more about what I can do with Vinny in 2 hours! I can look for any immediate or outwardly obvious red flags such as a severe reaction to another animal or a young child. I can see if he likes to work. I can see if he’s human motivated. I can see if he has any apparent resource guarding or even escape behaviors. Mostly, I can attempt to rule him out as a good candidate based on our interactions and if I can’t rule him out – he’s in!! 🤩
