 Pup #1 BTF Personality Test Summary

Puppy came over to meet the tester happily but was not pushy and waited her turn to give the Tester love. After a ton of kisses, she was the only puppy to keep bringing the toy back to Tester, playing as a team. When placed in the new environment, puppy stayed calm and alert. She sneezed a few times LOL and then noticed the Tester and races towards them. About 3 feet in front of the Tester, the puppy stopped and pawed the ground, asking the Tester to play. She got very excited once touched and started wagging her tail extremely fast and gave lots of kisses. Puppy noticed the pain quickly with a whimper but kept wagging her tail and was very quick to forgive the Tester as if it never happened. Puppy treated being restrained as if it were a game and likes to be held and feels safe with Tester. She loved the new squeaky toy and got very excited to play but showed more interest in the Testers hands then the toy. Puppy was the only pup to open mouth kiss. She basically put the Testers whole nose in her mouth. She sometimes connects with her pointy puppy teeth but definitely means no harm. Puppy seemed to know that the Tester was fine when he fell, so she curled up beside them and started grooming herself. She then became bored and started chewing on the Testers pants until they responded. Puppy loved being elevated, tail and legs wagging happily with her staring deep into Testers eyes. She is the first born and first to do many things. Puppy bullies all her siblings, but will take a little back. She is always jumping into activities and tries new things with excitement.
