Truce is a gray and white neutered male American Pitbull terrier. He was surrendered due to personal problems owner was facing. Truce was adopted from ACC and has been with his owner for almost a year.
Truce has lived with one adult in the home. He is described as friendly and outgoing with strangers. He will engage in rough play with adults and owner state she likes to jump and can be mouthy during play. He is playful around children and will engage in exuberant and sometimes rough play with children as well. He has not been around other dogs. If he sees a cat in the street he will bark.
Truce has good behavior in the home according to owner. He is nervous during storms and will hide. He is not bothered when his food is touched or when a toy is taken away. Owner stated when a treat or bone is taken away and will try to get it back by jumping and barking. He will bark and growl when a stranger approaches his home and owner stated he is protective of the home.
He has a high activity level and likes to play tug with his rope toy. He has been kept mostly indoors and sleeps in his owners bed. He eats dry foo Alpo brand and is fed wet food Science Diet brand. He is well behaved when left alone and rarely has accidents in the home. He knows the commands sit, come and likes to run. When off leash he will run away.
Upon intake Truce was relaxed and allowed all handling. Cousnelor was able to collar, scan (positive) and photograph.
Truce previously lived with one adult and has been around children. The owner stated Truce is friendly and playful around strangers, adults and children. The owner mentioned Truce is house trained, has a high activity level and well behaved when home alone.
At intake it was reported Truce was relaxed and allowed all handling. During SAFER Truce came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly and affectionate towards the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Truce was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Truce was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Truce appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
