What does a friendly dog look like?

Canine Body Language: Friendly

A friendly dog has perked up ears, open and alert eyes, a relaxed mouth, and a tail or whole rear end wagging. He may and also be whimpering, yapping or giving short barks.

One thing to keep in mind is that a wagging tail does not always mean a dog is friendly. If a dog raises his tail with a stiff wag, perks his ears forward, has intense eyes, and bares his teeth, he is in a threatening posture.
