11/17/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/17/16 17:05 Basic information: Cindy is a roughly 7 yr. old Am Pit Bull mix. The Owner got her from a litter that was born in the home. The owner surrendered Cindy because he is moving and cannot take Cindy. Cindy had given birth about 5 months ago and she has never been taken to a vet. Socialization: Around strangers Cindy is friendly playful. Cindy has not lived with children but she is relaxed and playful around children and adults she does not know. Cindy has never been around other pets (outside of her litter of puppies) so the owner has no idea how Cindy would behave around then. Cindy has never bitten anyone. Behavior: The owner stats that Cindy is not bothered when some moves her food or treats while she is eating, when someone takes her toys away or when someone disturbs her while sleeping. Cindy likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had her nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or her home she approaches them in a friendly manor. The owner does not know how Cindy is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks. For a new family to know: The owner describes Cindy as friendly and playful with a medium activity level. Her favorite activity is to play fetch with his owner. In the home Cindy tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Cindy sleeps in the floor of the bedroom on a blanket. Cindy was fed name brand dry and wet dog food three times a day. She is house trained and has never had an accident in the home, when outside she goes to the bathroom on or around trees and grass. Cindy knows the commands “sit “and “down”. For exercise Cindy is used to brisk walks on the leash and twice a day and does not pull on the leash. Behavior during intake: Cindy was relaxed with lose body. Cindy allowed to be scanned (-), collared, pictured and placed in a dog kennel.
11/19/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Cindy was calm and collected as I approached her kennel. She gently gazed at me as I opened it. On the street she heeled almost to perfection! She pulled slightly from time to time. I’m confident that once she creates that special bond with her lucky owner she will be glued to his/her side. Just a feeling. Her soft doe eyes are hypnotizing. She’s a keeper! Another volunteer writes: A proud member of the ‘frosted face club’, Cindy is regal, elegant, affectionate and friendly. She holds her head high, and I like to imagine it’s because she’s proud of the life she’s lived so far. Surrendered by the only family she’s ever known (she was born in their home) as they are moving where she isn’t welcome, she’s been bred many times, the last time about 5 months ago. We’re told she’s friendly to all, is relaxed and playful with children, is housetrained (check), knows ‘sit’ (check) and ‘down’, her favorite activity is to play fetch, she doesn’t guard her things, and enjoys being brushed and given a bath. Cindy was quiet on her bed when I approached, getting up to greet me. We walked to the park after Cindy used ‘the facilities’, and in the park I wondered if she has some pointer or hound in her as she stopped to survey the birds and squirrels before attempting to give chase. Her beautiful amber eyes are soulful and thoughtful, and off leash in a pen Cindy joins me on the bench for some kisses and hugs. Understandably confused and concerned as of this writing, Cindy has known the comforts of a home and is ready to find that again, as a cherished companion, loved for the affectionate and sweet girl she is. She’s hoping to find her new person or family today.
