A volunteer writes: Surrendered by his family as they don’t have the “time or patience” to train him, like every youngster he’s smart, bouncy and eager to learn. He needs the proper positive reinforcement training to bring out the rock star in him and has all the basics to be just that. He’s gorgeous in his lush coat, shining white teeth, eager tail wag and fun personality. We’re told he’s friendly and outgoing, loved his 10 year old human sibling and all other children he meets, is affectionate, loves to play, knows ‘sit'”, “stay” and “come”. He loves being brushed and getting a bath and wants to play with everyone. He’s playful with other dogs, and in his first group play solicits with play bows and is pushy in his play style. KT (yes, we’re on a nickname basis now that we’re friends), showed off his sit, takes treats gently, joined me on the bench for some snuggle time and loves to play. I left our pen for a few minutes, and KT waited patiently and quietly for my return, greeting me like his long lost bestie. Fun, friendly and active, like any youngster KT needs a home in which structure, training, and lots of love are on the daily agenda. We don’t grow up to be rock stars without guidance, and KT is ready to begin his happily ever after with you today.
King Tut A1066258 is a 1yr old male black AMPBT mix who was given to owner from a friend & is being surrendered due to his destructive behavior and the owner has no time to train him. He was last seen by a veterinarian in 2015 and has no known health issues.
Around strangers, King Tut is friendly/outgoing. He’s lived in a private home with his owner. The owner is in the process of renovation and has to keep King Tut separate but he does not like being alone. He has chewed up the walls and floor. He is left with plenty of toys but he has not been doing well alone in the home. The owner does not have the time or patience to train him. He plays exuberantly with the owner’s 10 year old daughter and with other children he meets. He is very playful with other dogs and cats. He has not bitten anyone or any other animal.
King tut will chew on the walls and floor when left alone. He is let out in the yard twice a day to go potty. During storms/fireworks he’ll bark. He isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being disturbed while sleeping/resting. King Tut loves bath time and being brushed. He hasn’t had his nails trimmed. If someone approaches the home/family member King Tut wants to play.
For A New Family to Know:

King Tut was surrender to us. According to his previous owner he is friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, excitable & independent with a high activity level. He plays exuberantly with the owner’s 10 year old daughter and with other children he meets. He is very playful with other dogs and cats. He has chewed up the walls and floor. He is left with plenty of toys but he has not been doing well alone in the home the owner does not have the time to train him”. King Tut did not show any concern during the behavior assessment but his owner reported that king Tut was chewing on furniture when left alone for long periods, so we advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment

King Tut allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of. He was a very jumpy, friendly, super wiggly boy who took us quite a few tries to get a picture of. King tut was then coaxed into a kennel with food and some liver treats.
When off leash with other dogs, King Tut briefly solicits with bows, then postures behind the female greeter to mount. He is forward and pushy throughout the interaction and continues to follow the greeter, despite her corrections.
King Tut displays highly sexually motivated behavior when off leash with other dogs, but has begun to reciporcate with play when solicited. Previous owner cites that “he is very playful with other dogs”. The behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction for King Tut before placement into a home with another dog.
