A volunteer writes: Surrendered by her owner along with Cora A1062676 as there was no longer time to care for them, we’re told that Ezra is shy and fearful around strangers. We’re all strangers to her and indeed Miss Ezra is shy and uncomfortable. Her tail is tucked and she’s reluctant to walk so I carry her outside where it’s quiet. Once in the backyard she slowly becomes more playful, actually play bowing to me to engage. So cute! She’s adorably petite in her slate gray coat, her eyes matching her coat in a slightly lighter color. We’re told she’s housetrained and never has accidents, knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’, walks well on leash, slept on a blanket in the bedroom and loves to play fetch. She lived with a young child and was relaxed and playful, and was the same with the other two dogs she lived with. In her first group she was initially nervous but opened up quickly and solicited bouncy play. You go girl! Ezra will need some time to get comfortable but made so much progress in such a short amount of time I know she’ll be a rock star in her new home. Let’s not let her get too comfortable with us – she’s waiting for you to meet her. Do it today!
Ezra A1062674 a 7 month old am pit bull mix and Cora A1062676 a 1 yr old AM pit bull Mix were both brought in as owner surrenders. They were both born in the home. The owner surrendered Ezra and Cora because the owner has no time to care for the dogs. Ezra and Cora have never been taken to a vet.
Around strangers Ezra is very shy and a little fearful. Ezra has lived with children one 4 yr old child, she is relaxed and playful around the child. Ezra has lived with Cora A1062676 and one other male pit bull mix, she was relaxed around them and plays very well together. However she is very nervous around other dogs she does not know and will try to hide. Ezra has never bitten anyone.
The owner stats that Ezra 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. Ezra 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 tries to run and hide from the person. The owner does not know how Ezra is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks.
For a new family to know:
The owner describes Ezra as friendly, shy and playful with a high activity level. Her favorite activity is to play fetch with his owner. In the home Ezra tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Ezra sleeps in the floor of the bedroom on a blanket. Ezra was fed Pedigree dry and wet dog food two times a day. She is house trained and has never had an accident in the home, when outside he goes to the bathroom on or around trees and grass. Ezra knows the commands “sit “and “down”. For exercise Ezra is used to brisk walks on the leash and twice a day and does not pull on the leash.
Behavior during intake:
Ezra was tense with stiff body and tail tucked between legs when approached by staff attemped to back away from the staff member but allowed slow approach, we were able to scanned (-), collared and placing in dog kennel.
When off leash with other dogs, Exra is initially nervous in the yard, then quickly opens up and solicits bouncy play with the helper dog.
