  1. This dog should not be approached, at least not quickly. I would give this dog space by crouching and looking away from the other side of the room.

  2. I would say she seems fearful. Her facial ridges indicate worry and you can see the whites of her eyes. Her tail is tucked and she seems to be trying to make herself small. I don’t know that she is unsafe, but she doesn’t want to be approached so she could bite if she felt threatened enough. I would crouch down and turn to the side and allow her to approach on her own time.

  3. I would say this dog is fearful. Talk softly, don’t look at her, sit by her and let her approach you if she wants too.
