06/23/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/23/17 13:57 Basic Information: Nene is 2 year old small breed unaltered male. Nene was a homebred dog. The owner has some personal issues and that is the only reason she has to surredner Nene. Nene does not have any medical issues, but Nene has never seen a veterinarian. Socialization: When brought around strangers, Nene is shy and when having visitors who sleep over, Nene is extremely shy and hides. Nene has only lived with two adults, there has been no interaction with him and other dogs besides the ones he has lived with (which include her mother – 3y/o and littermate).. When playing with the adults in the house, Nene was very high energy and liked rough play. At home, Nene had a rope that he and the other two dogs in the home would use to play tug of war. Behavior: Nene has never bitten or attempted to bite another person or dog. The owner did not take Nene outside very much so he is only wee-wee pad trained and is extremely fearful of loud noises, thunder, fire trucks, and sirens. Nene has been groomed at home by the owner, he would allow her to cut his nails, brush him, and give him a bath. Nene is extremely friendly and affectionate, but he can be a little pushy with his littermate when it comes time for food. Nene is free fed pedigree wet food and loves bacon bits treats. For a new family to know: Nene loves to cuddle and get belly rubs. Nene is used to sleeping on the bed with the owner and otherwise does not get on to furniture. Nene does well in a crate. When being walked, Nene pulls lightly and when taken off leash, Nene stays close. During intake, Nene’s tail was tucked between his legs and he was shaking. Nene scanned negative for a microchip and there was only limited handling.

INTAKE BEHAVIOR Upon intake, Nene’s tail was tucked and he was trembling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/23/17 During his initial medical exam, Nene allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Nene’s previous owner described him as having a very high level of activity. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Bentley may be intimidated by young children. He needs a slow approach and time to warm up. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Nene appears a fearful at the care center. His previous owner described him as shy with new people and fearful of loud noises. It is important to always go slow and give Nene the option to walk away from any social interaction. Nene should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Nene’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Nene would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
