A volunteer writes: This adorable Muppet was so quiet in her kennel all day, finally standing up to signal me that it was time for a walk. She pottied as soon as we were out the door, is great on leash, sits as soon as she sees a treat and takes it gently, and is so sweet, calm and gentle I couldn’t help but fall in love. Surrendered to our care due to someone in the family having allergies, we’re told she’s friendly to all, is playful with other dogs, is housetrained to go outside but will also use wee wee pads inside, doesn’t guard her things, loves to play and also loves to relax with her family. She enjoys being part of a family, doing whatever it is they are doing at the time whether it be playing or relaxing. It’s clear she was a cherished family member as she’s easy, quiet, and beautifully taken care of. Kobe is looking for a new person or family to take care of and we’re rooting for her. Come meet her today.
Kobe is a nine year old scottish terrier mix. She came into our care center as an owner surrender. In her previous home there had been a young teenager with bad allergies which is why his family decided to bring her in. She is spayed and does not appear to have any health issues according to her owner.
Kobe is not shy at first with people she does not know. After warmign up to someone she is likely to approach with a wiggly body and allow others to pet her. She had not spent time around very many children aside from the teenager who she had shared a home with. Around him she is her playful and affectionate self. Similarly she is playful around other dogs and will only bark at them when she is far away. As soon as the other dog gets close enough she approaches and sniffs them.
Kobe uses the bathroom both in and outside of the house. Inside the home she utilizes wee-wee pads. At times she misses the wee-wee pad entirely, although accidents of this nature are not incredibly common. Around her food, treats and toys she is calm and shows no signs of guarding. When she was bathed she would squirm around a bit but allow her handler to finish. She also seems to really enjoy brushing.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW:
Kobe is a medium energy dog that loves to play as much as she enjoys relaxing at home with her family members. Some will at times engage in independent play whereby she will primarily play with bouncy balls. If she sees commotion and people running around her she will likely become excited as well and want to play chase. Some commands that she knows include sit, roll over, and give me your paw. For excercise she had been taken out for daily walks during which she did not pull. Her diet had consisted of Purina dog chow.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE:
When the counselor first approached, Kobe averted her gaze and stood by her owner’s side. She was given treats, which she took gently. After eating her treats she allowed the counselor to pet her. She then jumped onto the chair where she sat still while the counselor collared her. She jumped on the counselor’s leg a few times and wagged her tail while the counselor scratched her sides. She sat on command for her photograph, multiple times and was easy to handle.
