07/03/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/03/17 15:43 Bullet is a 2 year old white dog with black and brown coloration on his ears and was found outside by himself. When counselor approached Bullet with scanner while he was in the cage and bullet charged the cage and snapped at counselor. When trying to remove Bullet from crate he snapped, bucked and growled at counselor. Once taken out of crate and given some time Bullet allowed all hnalding from counselor for scanning, collaring and photograph. He allowed counselor to pick him up and pet on head.
A volunteer writes: Such an imposing name for a little tyke! Bullet waits quietly in his kennel ready for a walk with whomever is going to take him. Me!!! He’s adorable, and so handsome in his pristine white coat, clean and well groomed. He’s likely housetrained, but waited until we hit some grassy dirt before taking care of his business, and then looking up at me with a smile we continue on. His leash manners are lovely, and although he didn’t like either of my treats he sniffed them with a polite no thank you. I invited Bullet up on the bench with me, so he hopped up, sat down, and the two of us spent quiet time watching some kids play ball. When not on the bench, he sat at my feet, quietly watching other dogs pass us by. Bullet is a sweetheart, but his least favorite thing is going back into his kennel, and he’ll let you know that. He wants to be with people, he wants to experience life without the confines of four tight walls. Come meet him and give him the life he deserves.

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Bullet snapped and growled at the counselor when in the carrier. Once out of the carrier, he allowed some handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/4/17 During his initial medical exam, Bullet was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Bullet so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience) _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Bullet is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Bullet is fearful in the care center and has snapped when fearfu. It is important to always go slow and give Bullet the option to walk away from any social interaction. Bullet should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Bullet’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Bullet would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
