Lady A1077423 is a 2.5 year old spayed American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Her family got her from a neighbor when she was 6 months old. They had to surrender her with her daughter Honey A1077424 due to the NYCHA breed regulations.
Lady is shy with new people at first. She lived with 11 children from babies and older. She was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. She plays exuberantly with people. She was relaxed, playful, affectionate, and tolerant with Honey. They played somewhat rough and slept together. Outside, she’s relaxed with other dogs nearby but growls if they sniff her, especially male dogs. Lady hasn’t bit anyone.
Lady whines during storms. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, wakes her up, or bathes her. She barks when someone knocks at the door. She doesn’t mind when strangers come into her home. If they sit and let her sniff her, she quickly becomes friendly with them. Outside, she hides behind her owner when a stranger approaches. If he owner approaches a stranger, she tries to pull him away.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Lady’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, and medium energy. She follows her family. She played with rope toys and played chase, fetch, and tug. She lived inside and slept next to her owner’s bed. She ate dry Pedigree food. She’s housetrained, potties in grass, and doesn’t have accidents. She’s well-behaved while left alone inside. She has been left in a yard with a 3′ gate fence for a few minutes at a time and was well-behaved. She sits and lies down when asked. She went for slow-brisk walks and pulled on her leash. Off-leash, she wanders but comes when called.
Lady walked a long distance to ACC. She was panting. She approached and sniffed me. She lied under her owner’s chair during her intake. He scanned her (-). Lady had a soft body while I approached her, collared her, positioned her for pictures, and held her as we went in and out of the door. She took a treat but spit it out. While I worked at the computer, she walked around and often stood up and sniffed things on the walls, whining a little. She often looked at the door where her family left. She sometimes lied down next to Honey. When Honey left, she pulled towards her to follow her and whined.
Lady walks calmly on leash. She was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body, but trying to stay close. Lady was shy during handling with a fearful body language. She was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Lady was not interested in toys.
