07/09/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/09/16 15:21 Basic Info: Pititin A1080570 is a 3yr old male black & brown Min Pin who was found as a stray in the owner’s neighborhood 7months ago and is being surrendered due to pet conflict. Pititin hasn’t been seen by a veterinarian and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Pititin is shy for a few minutes. He’s spent time with a 12yr old and was gentle, exuberant & playful with them, the adults, teenager, a female Rottie and for the most part also with a male Shih Tzu in the home. Pititin hasn’t bitten/scratched any animal where injury has occurred although yesterday he got into a scuffle with the Shih Tzu over a bone treat. When the owner attempted to break them up they were bit in the process leaving a puncture wound to the hand. According to them it was a quick snap then he let go. The Shih Tzu wasn’t harmed. Behavior: Pititin isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being held/restrained, having his nails trimmed, being bathed or if someone unfamiliar approaches the home/family member. Pititin hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For A New Family To Know: Pititin is described as friendly, affectionate (most of the times) & playful (sometimes) with a low activity level. He enjoys resting. When the owner is home Pititin follows them around sometimes. Pititin is a mostly indoor only dog who’s walked 2-3x a day. When he has to “go” he’ll let you know. Pititin sleeps on his bed, eats wet Purina dog chow 2x a day and knows no commands. Intake Behavior: Pititin seemed uncomfortable with handling. As to not stress him out more the owner assisted with handling him. Pititin allowed to be scanned (-) & collared. We weren’t able to get a picture on the backdrop due to him moving too much and panting/pacing back & forth. The owner then placed Pititin into the kennel.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Pititin came into our center after having an altercation with another resident dog over a treat, owner was bitten while trying to intervene. Owner reports the bite was a quick snap and then Pititin instantly let go, the other dog was not harmed. Pititin reportedly lived with a small dog (that he had this isolated altercation with) and also a large rottweiler. It is reported Pititin has spent time with a 12 year old child, gentle and playful. Pititin is reportedly not bothered if anyone touches his Food, Toys, Treats. Owner reports Pititin is housebroken, will let you know when he has to ‘go’. Pititin is said to be shy around strangers initially but will warm up. During intake, owner assisted with handling as PItitin was stressed, panting and pacing back and forth. Pititin allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, relaxed. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, open mouth. Pititin followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft. He pulled back his paw and growled on Squeeze item, therefore remaining item was conducted using Flank. Pititin growled on both Flank Squeezes. He showed no interest in Toy. Pititin approached the helper dog quickly, tail above spine level, not stiff. The Behavior Team feels Pititin would do best with an Experienced owner that does not have children. It is recommended if there are other resident dogs, there should be an in-depth interaction before considering adoption. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.
