Blue is a 3 year old male gray and white American Pit-Bull terrier. He was given to his owners as a gift from a family member and has been in their care since he was born. He is being surrendered into our facility due to owner having personal problems.
With strangers he is friendly and plays gentle with adults. Has no experience with children. He lived with another dog Paco (A1069101) and with each other they are tolerant and playful. He has not been around other dogs nor has any experience with cats. There is no known history of him biting another person or animal.
He was housed in a basement and would use the bathroom in a section down there. He does destroy stuff indoors such as wood and paper bags. During fireworks and storms he isn’t bothered. You are able to touch his food bowl while he is eating; behavior is unknown to taking treats or objects away. Blue doesn’t enjoy eater; he will attempt to run and struggle. He is friendly when his nails are being trimmed and coat is being brushed. Doesn’t mind when being held or restrained. When unfamiliar people approach the home he barks and when unfamiliar people approach you he isn’t bothered.
Blue is described as being friendly and playful with a medium activity level that will do best in a home where he is the only pet. His favorite activities are eating or playing with his balls or squeaky toys. When home he will follow you around. He is mostly kept indoors and eats dry food Pedigree once a day. His favorite treats are Milk Bones. He is mostly house trained and rarely has any accidents. When left alone in the home he can destroy things, when left alone in the yard he is will bark. He knows such command as “sit”. For exercise he takes slow walks on the leash or play in the yard, and on the leash he doesn’t pull. Off the leash he will wander but come when you call. Usually Blue will potty on the cement or dirt.
During intake Paco present a loose body and wagging tail allowed all handling from counselor to be scanned (negative), collared and photographed.
PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs, Blue approaches and greets with a loose and soft body. He does not engage in nor solicit play but is tolerant of another dog who does. He spends most of the time wandering the pen and exploring the yard.
4/5: Blue was used as a greeter today. He approaches other dogs with a loose body. At times Blue can become sexually motivated and attempt to mount but he will listens to all handler interruptions.
