03/15/17 11:31 BASIC INFO Rexs A1085090 is an 11 month old American Pitbull terrier Mix. He was a gift to the owner from a friend 9 months ago. The main reason for surrender is that the owner is being evicted from where they live and cannot take him to the new apartment where they are going. Rexs was last seen by a veterinanrian in July 2016 for basic shots. He is reported to get cramping or pain on right hind leg by the owner. SOCIALIZATION Rexs is friendly around strangers.

Rexs has lived with another Pitbull and a cat and he got along very well with the animals. He would chase the cat playing. Rexs has never bitten or scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR The only behavior issue that Rexs has is that if you leave him alone for too long, he starts chewing on the wall. He allows you to take away his food bowl, water bowl or toy away. He allows you to push him off of furniture, hold or restrain him. Rexs allows you to awaken him out of his sleep. If an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, he barks. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Rexs is best described as friendly, affectionate and playful. He has a high activity level. when home, he follows you around.

03/22/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: There once was a boy named Rex. Who just was the absolute best! With a black button nose and ivory, white toes and eyes that could only say “yes.” So “yes” is just what you say. To a walk on a cold, winter’s day. Rex is easily leashed and like a day at the beach has you smiling with glee right away. So the two of you stroll to the park. And dear Rex is a dream, not one bark! He walks right by your side and you’re brimming with pride to be seen with this fine work of art. Sweet Rex is just 11 months old. And with manners to boot? I am sold! He lived well with a child and a cat (which is wild) and is housebroken at least so we’re told. Eventually Rex feels a chill. A return to his bed fits the bill. So you give him a hug, one more kiss, love that mug! And escort him inside at his will. There once was a boy named Rex. Who just was the absolute best. He needs only a home, just one bed, just one bone! He’ll bring happiness, love, and the rest. Rex is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC. Another volunteer writes: With his kennel right outside the volunteer room, it’s clearly impossible not to see Rex every time I walked in and out to get something or another from my backpack. But even if I had to walk 10 miles to get to him, I would want to spend time with Rex! Rex is an 11 month old boy who is equal parts handsome, sweet, and happy. Rex walks wonderfully on a leash–he’s a strong boy, but after the initial excitement of fresh air wears off, he is just fine. He loves exploring the world, and he snorts like a pig while he’s sniffing things. It is the cutest thing I ever heard. Rex knows “sit” and loves treats, and he positively lights up when he sees human friends–tail wagging, wiggly body, the whole nine yards! After our walk, we sat quietly for a while, with Rex cuddled up next to me to enjoy a little massage. This boy is just the best. Come on down and meet this great pup yourself!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 3/15/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (In previous home for nine months) Previously lived with: Adults, young children, a dog, and a cat. Behavior toward strangers: Friendly Behavior toward children: Relaxed and playful Behavior toward dogs: Got along well with the dog he lived with Behavior toward cats: Will playfully chase cats Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Will go outside and on wee wee pads Energy level/descriptors: Rexs is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful with a high activity level. Other notes: When left alone, Rexs will chew the walls. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/16/17 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is wagging with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Rexs displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment, he was social throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: The previous owner describes that Rex “lived with another Pitbull and a cat and he got along very well with the animals”. Rex engages in play with polite dogs in the care center, and has not been uncomfortable engaging in rougher, exuberant play. At times, he has been observed to mount other dogs. The behavior department recommends slow introductions to polite or gently playful or tolerant dogs.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/15/17 During his initial medical exam, Rexs was playful and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Rexs’ previous owner described him as having a high level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. 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: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior (Rexs was reported to have chewed the walls in his previous home. It must be clarified that he was left alone for an extended period, likely with little environmental enrichment or stimulation, so we cannot be certain whether the behavior was due to boredom. But it is a good idea to provide Rexs with durable, long-lasting chews and other engaging toys when he is left alone, to avoid chewing of inappropriate items. Examples are Kongs and Nylabones.)
