Puchie is a 13 year old Yorkshire terrier whose owner got from a pet store when he was a puppy. The owner is moving and cannot bring Puchie with her.
Puchie is friendly around strangers. He has lived with a 5 year old in his home and he is relaxed and playful and plays gently. Puchie has been around other dogs in his home, he used to live with two other yorkies (younger and older) and he got along well with them and is playful when they solicit play behavior. He has never been around other cats but lived in a home with a fish that he barks at occasionally. No known bite history.
Puchie used to exhibit proper house trained behavior but started urinating indoors after one of the yorkies passed away. Even after long walks he will come inside and pee around the house. He was previously trained to use the bathroom on weewee pads or outside, he still defecates on the weewee pad or outdoors but pees around the house. Owner kept him isolated in the bathroom when she felt he might go around using the bathroom indoors especially after walks. When left alone he sometimes will whine or bark. He likes to chew on children toys and go through the garbage. He is not bothered by loud or startling sounds. He does not mind having his food, treats or toys. He does not mind being held or restrained or being disturbed while sleeping. He si not bothered by being bathed but will whine when water gets in his face. He is not bothered by having his fur brushed or nails trimmed. He is not bothered by unfamiliar people approaching home or owner.
Puchie is friendly, quiet and loves being spoiled with a medium level of activity. He follows his owner around the house and likes to be in the same room as his owner. He enjoys chewing on plastic and bones. He is fed Wellness dry food, once a day and only salmon or potato flavors due to allergies. He is partially house trained and has accidents daily. He knows the command come and let’s go outside. He is taken on slow walks for exercise. When at the park he is walked off leash and will come when called. He pulls lightly on the leash when he sees other people that he wants to run towards.
Puchie entered shelter with a loose body and allowed all handling for scanning, collaring and photograph. When put into his cage which had food in it he gave a low growl but gave no other response when touched.
