03/29/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/29/17 14:53 Gracie is friendly and outgoing towards strangers and usually approaches them for a good sniff. She has lived with children ages newborn to 9 years and is relaxed and playful with them. She plays gently with both adults and children. Gracie lives with another male pitbull and they are relaxed and playful with each other. She’s also spent time around other dogs on the street and always plays gently. She’s never been around cats so it’s unknown how she would react. Gracie has never bitten another animal or human. During loud noises such as thunderstorms, Gracie isn’t bothered and goes about her normal business. She isn’t bothered when her food, toys, or treats are taken away and doesn’t go on furniture. She isn’t bothered when held from something she wants and when awoken from her slumber, will just go back to sleep. She loves baths and being brushed and doesn’t mind getting her nails clipped. She’s friendly when someone unfamiliar approaches her home and her humans. Gracie is friendly, affectionate, mellow, excitable, and playful. She has a medium activity level and when she’s ready to play enjoys chewing on one type of bone. Her owner loves how she’s a great listener and how much she enjoys cuddling. When her owners are home, Gracie loves following them around and hanging out in the same room as them. She’s kept mostly indoors and sleeps in the living room on her doggy bed in her crate. She’s very house-trained and only goes potty outside wherever she can pick up a scent. She’s well-behaved when left home-alone or when left outside in her yard. She’s crate-trained and does well in it for about 8 hours. Gracie knows sit, relax, wait, come (“ben”– she’s bilangual), stop, stay, and go peepee. For exercise she enjoys brisk walks on leash and pulls lightly. She eats Kibbles dry food, about two cups, twice a day. She enjoys any type of treats but mostly chicken/bacon flavored ones. She’s allergic to anything involving fish.

A volunteer writes: Goodness Gracie, is this girl ever adorable, sweet, charming and fun! Gracie is the kind of gal that sees a friend in every stranger and spreads happiness wherever she goes. She’s previously lived harmoniously with young children (she was relaxed and playful with them) and another pitbull (she’s done well with dogs in our care, too!). She seems housebroken, doesn’t pull too much on leash, and LOVES to play with toys. When I gave her a squeaky one she was so excited she could barely contain herself — flopping around, prancing around like a pony and tossing it for herself, and even bringing it to me so we could both marvel at what a treasure it was! She is treat-motivated and listens to commands very well, and we’re told she’s well-behaved when left alone (and just about all the time!). She gives me kisses when I pet her, is a wagging-machine, and is a true catch in every way…please come see her at Brooklyn ACC!
