A volunteer writes:
Azury is a two year old black labrador. She came into our care center as an owner surrender. The owner is moving into a new home that does not allow animals and is unable to keep her. They had got her from a breeder and New York when she was a puppy and she has been in their care for a little less than two years.
When approaching strangers Azury will walk up to them and begin to sniff them. She had been around babies and a one year old child. She is gentle and allows handling from adults and child alike. During walks around her neighborhood she had been interested in other dogs and would often walk over and sniff them as well. However she has never been around a cat so her behavior around them remains unknown.
She uses the bathroom both inside and outside the home. She would be given a walk a night daily but throughout the day when the owner was not around she would relieve herself inside the home. With regards to food she had been calm and relaxed when her owner came into contact with her food bowls or treats. Similarly she was fine when her owner would pick up her toys. When given baths she would be scared at first but with time would acclimate. She is also not bothered when she is brushed or her nails are trimmed.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW:
Overall she is a friendly and playful, high energy girl. Her favorite activities include chase, and fetch. When her owner had been home she was likely found following the owner around. When the owner was not present she would either be in her crate, which she frequently uses and sleeps in or walking about the house. However the owner did mention that when there where times when he would come home to chewed up cables or headphones and suggests makign sure those are not in plain sight. She knows commands such as sit, come, stay, roll over, and give me your paw in both English and Spanish. Her diet had consisited of dry food, mostly Pedigree and Puppy Chow. Her favorite treats are cheese bones and beggin strips.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE:
During her intake Azury’s body had remained loose, and her tail was consistently wagging. The counselor crouched down and slow blinked at her at which point she walked over and began to sniff the counselor. She allowed the counselor to pet her and stood still as she was collared and photographed. As the counselor was typing up her information she layed down quietly on the floor.
PLAYGROUP NOTES :
9/24: When off leash with another female dog Azury briefly greets then roams away to sniff the pen. After a couple minutes she re-approaches to solicit. She is whining and anxious from this point forward.
