A volunteer writes:
Rexy A1080211 was found as a stray 3 months ago by the owner’s niece and was given to the owner to keep. She is surrendering Rexy because she is unable to keep Rexy because she is moving to her mother’s house and dogs are not allowed. She has not been to the vet and he currently has no health issues.
Rexy is friendly with strangers. She plays well with children of all ages. She has not been around other dogs or cats. She has not bitten anyone or any other animals.
Rexy was walked twice a day and used wee wee pads. She is not bothered with fireworks or thunderstorms. She is not bothered with having her food bowl or treats taken away from her. She has some hairloss and was bathed with oatmeal shampoo. She is not bothered when strangers approach.
For a new family to know
Rexy is described as affectionate, mellow, sweet, and friendly with a medium activity level. She was fed pedigree wet food and slept on a doggy bed. Her favorite activity is sleeping. She knows how to come and sit but is a little hard of hearing.
Behavior during intake
Rexy was relaxed and allowed all handling. I leashed and walked her out of her carrier and scanned her. I picked her up and placed her on the backdrop for photos. I collared her and placed her inside of her kennel.
Rexy came into our center after a member of the public found him as a stray, holding onto to him for a few months. It is reported she plays well with children of all ages, friendly with strangers. Behavior around cats is unknown. Finder reports Rexy is not bothered if anyone touches her Food, Toys, Treats.
She is described as affectionate, mellow, sweet, and friendly. During intake, Rexy was relaxed and allowed all handling. Rexy walked slowly on leash for his relief walk, no pulling. He was calm and quiet upon entering SAFER assessment room. Rexy held gaze for three full seconds during Look item. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body soft. Rexy didn’t follow on leash for Tag game, soft and relaxed, approached assessor at end of game. He pulled his paw back quickly on Squeeze item. Rexy showed minimal interest in Toy, sniffing a few times but not fully engaging. When off leash with other dogs Rexy solicts play from males and females; he will cease when the other dogs are not interested. Behaviorally, Rexy would do well with an Average adopter.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
