04/12/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/12/16 20:53 Bronx is a 10 year old Tan and White Chihuahua mixed. He was at first a stray when he met his owner and has been in care for 4 years. He is being surrendered into our facility due to owner moving to private. A car had hit him in 2014 and though no bones were broken he was given anti-inflammatory pills; at time his joints will stiffen up and would nee d to be massaged out. With strangers he is friendly and plays gentle with adults. Has lived with an 18 year old female and is relaxed and playful; even gentle when he plays. He has been aggressive to the 19 year old male within in the home who is also afraid of him and would bark at him at times. Lived with a Shih Tzu female 3 years old and is playful, with other dogs he is gentle but at times can be somewhat rough. Has spent time with cats and is fearful. There is no known history of him biting another person or animal. When he wants attention and is hungry he will come to you and place his head in your lap or bark. When noises are coming from the door or from the hallway he will also bark. During storm or fireworks he panics. Isn’t bothered when you touch his food bowl while he is eating, nor when treats are taken away. Behavior is unknown when toys or objects are being taken away. He loves water and being bathed. Is friendly and enjoys having his coat brushed and also when being held or restrained. When unfamiliar people approach the house or yard he will bark, when unfamiliar people approach you he will growl. Bronx is described as being friendly and affectionate with a high activity that will do best in a family home. His favorite activities are running and playing. When home he will stay in his favorite spot. Indoors only he slept anywhere comfortable and was free fed Beneful and Mighty Dog wet and dry food. His favorite treats are sweets and Slim Jims. Bronx is house trained and rarely has accidents within the home; when he doesn’t it’s when he isn’t taken out within a certain amount of time. When left alone in the home he is well behaved but has never been left alone in a yard. Has never been crated and for exercise goes on slow leash walks and he doesn’t pull on the leash; off leash he will wander but comes when called. He usually potty on the grass, cement or wee wee pads.
