Chiquita is a 10 year old female rat terrier, that was adopted by owner from ACC. She has been in owners care for 3 years and being surrendered due to owner being pregnant and moving. There are no known health injuries or problems or known.
Around strangers she’s fearful, nor does she plays with adults or children. She lived with another dog name Tiger (A0982321) she was relaxed whenever he was around but didn’t play with him. She lived with a cat and had become very tolerant. There is no known history of her biting another person or animal.
Chiquita often poops and pee indoors, and is nervous when it’s a rain storm. You are able to touch her food bowl while she’s eating, or when food or treats are being taken away. A bath is a struggle for her and she enjoys having her coat brushed. She barks when unfamiliar people approach you or the home when she hears Tiger do it.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
She is described as fearful with a low activity level. What makes her unique is that she is relaxed and her favorite activities are staying to herself. She doesn’t play with toys. Eats wet Pedigree 3 times a day. Partially house trained and accidents happens a few times a month. For exercise she walks slowly on the leash and doesn’t pull. When of the leash she runs away. When it’s time to potty she goes on the grass and cement.
During intake her tailed was tucked between her legs and she was shaking due to being nervous but allowed all handling from counselors to be scanned (positive), collared and photographed.
Chiquita came into our center along with another small dog whom she was relaxed around. It is reported she is fearful around strangers and does not play with adults or children. Owner reports Chiquita lived with a cat and was very tolerant. It is reported she is not bothered if you touch her Food, Toys, or Treats. During intake, Chiquita’s tail was tucked, nervous and shaking, but allowed all handling. She whined upon entering the SAFER assessment room, focused on exiting. Chiquita allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, body tense. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body tense, tail down. Chiquita followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, crouching at each pass, but approached assessor at end of game. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts and did not show any interest in Toy. Chiquita enters the pen with a burst of energy. She solicits and engages in running/chase play with one or two other dogs and is tolerant of pushy behavior by sexually motivated male. The Behavior Team feels Chiquita would do best with an Experienced home that does not have very young children. She may benefit initially from a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and know what to expect in her new home.
