A volunteer writes: Cookies, more cookies…this is Mama’s motto. She loves treats and will so beg for them. Mama came with friend Plunkie to the Manhattan Care Center as their owner had no time for her pets anymore. She comes with lovely comments. Sociable with strangers, lively, affectionate, gentle and playful with the child of the house, great with her housemate Plunkie, and a visiting Lab. Mama would be house- and wee wee pads-trained and free of any handling issues. She is an adorable little gal, apricot and cream. Her eyes are cloudy but she does not bump into anything and walks quite well on the leash, doing her business on the way. She is one happy girl to be in company, crawling all over her caretaker, tail wagging away. She is a real joy to be with. Come and meet lovely Mama. She is waiting for you in our adoption quarters.
Plunkie A1077944 an approximately 4 y male Am Pit bull mix and Mama A1071945 a Maltese mix were brought in together. They are being surrendered because the owner has personal Problems. They were given to the owner by the previous owner. Plunkie and Mama have never taken to a vet.
Around strangers, Plunkie and Mama are friendly around people. They have lived a household with a 13 year old child, they are relaxed and playful with the child and other adults in the home. They also lived with other dog (a seven year old Labrador), they all got along very well. The owner has never had cats so the owner does not know how Plunkie and Mama are around them. The owner states that Plunkie and Mama have never bite another person or animal before.
Plunkie and Mama are not bothered when you take their food bowl, treat, or toy away, by thunder storms or fireworks. When an unfamiliar person approaches the home or a family member they approach the person and sniff them (Mama sometimes barks at them). Plunkie and Mama do not mind being bathed and having their nails trimmed.
For a new family to know
The owner describes Plunkie and Mama as playful, affectionate and friendly with a high activity level their favorite activity is to play fetch with the owner. Around the house, they follow everyone around and prefer to be in the same room as the rest of the family. They have toys and love to play with Balls and Kong toys. They sleep mostly indoors with in separate dog crates in the living room. Plunkie and Mama were being fed Pedigree brand dry dog food 3 to 4 times a day. Plunkie and Mama l are house trained, and go to the bathroom on grass outside the house they are also wee wee pad trained and use pads left outside in the hallway. When left alone Plunkie and Mama are us to being kept in metal dog cages up to four hours a day. Diesel Plunkie and Mama know the commands for “sit” and “stay”. For exercise Plunkie and Mama are walked outside three times a day.
Behavior during the intake
During the intake, Plunkie and Mama were nervous with stiff bodies. They allowed to be scanned (negative), photographed, collar and placed the dog in the kennel.
Mama came into our center along with a large pitbull terrier on 4/29/2016. It is reported she also lived in a household with a 13 year old child, relaxed and playful. Owner reports Mama also lived with a Labrador retriever, behavior around cats is unknown. It is reported Mama is not bothered if anyone touches her Food, Toys, Treats. Owner reports Mama is housetrained to go outside on grass or inside on wee wee pads, crated for sleep and when left home alone. She is described as playful, affectionate, and friendly. During intake, Mama was nervous with stiff body, but allowed all handling. She was friendly upon entering SAFER assessment room, at times would bark to solicit attention. Mama allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, relaxed. She sniffed assessor’s hand during Sensitivity item, body soft. Mama followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, soft. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Mama showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports she enjoys playing catch, and loves to play with balls and kong toys. Mama approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, investigated and then turned away. The Behavior Team feels Mama would do well with an Average adopter.
