Luna A1082041 is an approx 11 year old Yorkie and is being surrendered because her owner moved into a new home that does not allow pets. She has not been to the vet in 2 years and she currently has no health issues.
Socialization: Luna is very friendly with strangers, adults and children. She lived in a home with a 2 year old and played exuberantly with her and loves to give kisses. She has been around 4 other dogs which were from the same litter and she was playful with them. She has not been around cats. She has not bitten anyone or any other animal.
Behavior: Luna was walked twice a day and used wee wee pads in the home. She was not bothered by thunderstorms or fireworks. She loves baths and brushing and allowed nail trimming. She was not bothered by taking her food bowl, treats or toys away. She wags her tail when strangers approach
For a new family to know: Luna is described as friendly, playful, loving, and loves to cuddle. She follows the family around in the home. She loves to sleep in the bed with the child and loves to cuddle with her. She played with her chew toys and squeaky toys all the time. She was fed small bites dry food and house food sometimes. She loves to go outside and go on walks.
Behavior during intake: Luna approached with a wagging tail but became fearful when I tried to scan her . She tried to hide behind her owner. She allowed to be picked up, collared, photographed and transferred into a kennel.
Group Behavior: 7/22: When off leash with other dogs Luna is uncomfortable and avoids interaction.
