03/01/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/01/16 15:41 BASIC INFO Kira is a 2 year old, spayed APBT mix. She originally came to ACC as a stray. Her family adopted her from AC&C 1 year ago but can’t keep her due to housing issues, lack of time, and a new baby. SOCIALIZATION Kira is friendly/outgoing with new people. She hasn’t spent time with children or other pets. She’s never bit anyone. BEHAVIOR Kira doesn’t mind storms. She doesn’t mind is someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, or wakes her up. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Kira’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, and high energy. She follows his family. She plays fetch and chase and likes chew toys. She lived inside and slept in her crate or on the couch. She ate dry and wet Beneful food. She’s housetrained, potties anywhere outside, and doesn’t have accidents. She is crated while home alone and does well for 8 hours. She went for brisk walks and sometimes pulls on her leash. INTAKE Kira had a slightly low body and was shivering. When I approached and talked to her, her body softened and she approached, still low, wagging her tail. She stood up and leaned against me while I pet her. She approached other new people and stood up and leaned against them while they pet her. She allowed me to pet, scan (+), collar, and position her for pictures, with a soft body. She sat when asked and sniffed but didn’t eat treats.

A volunteer writes: Kira is all grown up, so feminine and elegant in her perfect latte coat. I remember her as a shy puppy eager to learn all the ropes to become a great adult..Here she is with us again, as her owners became first time parents and unwilling to accommodate a pet anymore…Kira, though, has been beautifully cared for until now. She is a healthy young gal, well dressed and who comes with quite good comments. She is said to be sociable, very playful, energetic, affectionate, house trained and crate trained. Kira does pull a little on the leash. She is not fond of a kennel and is excited to go out. She attends to business as soon as we hit the street. She prefers to be free in a pen, though. She misses her freedom and stretches her legs as much as she can. She is eager for treats and will sit if requested for them. She sees a dog in a far away pen..She would love to join him and play..Indeed, Kira is quite good in playgroups(even that she did not really mingle with other dogs with her former masters), bouncing with her peers and offering play bows. She is interested in the ball, jump and run to catch it but does not retrieve. I bet she can but I need a few more sessions with her to be part of her circle of friends…Kira is is a young damsel, quite lively, affectionate(she will squeeze against my body for hugs) and very good with other dogs. Her place is not with us but with a loving home or family who can appreciate and enjoy an active pup. Kira is at the Manhattan Care Center… dreaming to be yours.

Sasha… a timid little puppy, overwhelmed by the newness of it all, and likely under socialized where ever she was before joining us. We’re changing that quickly, as she’s so sweet and cute she’s quickly become a favorite of all. Her coat is a stunning light tan brindle, and her eyes are the exact color of the tan in her coat. She may be housetrained, going potty as soon as we were out the door, and while she pulls on the leash I think that may be about inexperience being leashed, nothing more. She needs practice and a person who wants to help her become an amazing adult dog. She certainly has all the “right stuff”. She posed for pictures in the park, and then again in the backyard, making soft eye contact and keeping her eye on my treats. Once she knew I had treats I became her best friend and she happily followed me around. She enjoyed running after a ball but is waiting for her new pet parents to teach her what ‘retrieve’ means. Quietly playful, Sasha is learning what it means to be a puppy and to feel safe and loved. Joining me on the bench, she happily snuggled in my lap and gives kisses so gently and sweetly. Sasha enjoys the company of other dogs off leash, offers correction when needed and likes to play. When I first met Sasha she was trembling in the back of her kennel, after some people time and dog time, she was sitting up front, ready for her next adventure. Sasha is looking for a home in which she’ll receive positive reinforcement training, lots of exercise and love. Puppies aren’t for everyone, but if they’re for you, Sasha is your girl. Ask to meet her today.
