My dog prefers people over other dogs. Should I accept this as part of her personality?

Sammie loves people and loves to play. She is ok meeting other dogs but when try initiate play she wants nothing to do with it. On a rare occasion we will meet a dog she wants to play with but most of the time she refuses. Is this something I should be worried about?

I do not think this is anything to worry about. It could be something as simple as she may not know how to play with other dogs anymore, and finds their action confusing.

Is she a rescue? Some dogs are just really people oriented. I wouldn't worry. Just keep doing what your doing. Good Luck!
