Basic Information: Roble is a tan Pomeranian male with no known health issues or injuries, and has not seen a vet since he was neutered as a younger dog. Roble’s owner has to surrender due to the dogs aggressive behaviors towards her, and the fact that she works very long days/hours and does not have enough time to devote to his care.
Socialization: Roble’s is why when guests enter the home and it takes him some time to warm up. He will alert bark and then stops once they are inside. He has lived with young children and keeps his distance, but is respectful around them. He does not engage in play behavior too often but is gentle when he does. He has spent time with another dog and again kept his distance but co-existed well. He has not lived with cats before.
Behavior: Roble has no bite history and is not bothered by loud noises. He has no resource guarding behavior with food or toys, the daughter of the owner stated she cannot bathe or groom him, but that her mother has done so before. They have not trimmed his nails. Robles is shy, mellow and aloof, with a low energy level. He rarely seeks attention but does like to be in the same area as the family.
For a new family to know: Robles has been an indoor dog and sleeps on a pile of blankets he likes. He eats both wet and dry food but he has suffered from constipation so wet food helps with that. He is not house trained and will need to be trained. When left alone in the house he is well behaved and has not been crate trained. He does not know any commands but walks off leash and stays by the owners side.
Behavior during intake: Robles did not allow for any handling by counselor, he showed his teeth and snapped at both the owner and counselor when trying to remove the collar he had on. No further handling was done.
According to Roble’s previous owner, Roble spent time with another dog and kept his distance but co-existed well.
9/30: When off leash at the Care Center, Roble briefly greets a group of small male and female dogs, before wandering the pen while keeping to himself.
