A volunteer writes: Hellllooooo handsome! Wow, he’s gorgeous! Soldier is beautifully groomed, his coat clean and perfect, his stocky body wiggling with delight as we get to know one another. Playful, friendly, and so happy to be free in a pen to run around he greets other dogs passing by with an excited tail wag and a play bow. Soldier lived with two young children (8 and 2) and loved to play with them, licking their faces as they all rolled around on the floor together. He’s described as energetic and playful and I agree. He also loves to smile and laugh, and I love a dog who laughs at my bad jokes! Soldier loves to be told he’s a “nice boy” and a “good boy” and it’s easy to tell him that often as he is just that. Sitting before I ask him to when he sees my hand go in my treat bag (how did he know?), he waits patiently for the treat and takes it so gently. Soldier can be jumpy in play, loves to meet new people and we’re told doesn’t guard his ‘stuff’. I left him alone in a pen for a few minutes and he waited quietly and patiently greeting me with happy tail wags when I returned. He’s fun, friendly, energetic and a total delight waiting for a new family to take care of. I absolutely fell in love with this boy and you will too. Ask to meet him today.
Another Volunteer Writes: Such a misnomer of a name for such a peaceful, loving guy! I took him out at the request of another volunteer who is in love with him, and what a joy to remove him from the stress of the shelter—where he is stressed, sensitive soul that he is—and spend time in the park with him. He is incredible on the leash, just incredible. He is calm and dear with every person and dog he passes, he appears house trained, he loves snuggles, and he is worthy of all the accolades all the volunteers are bestowing upon him. Please, come meet this love of a boy!
Another volunteer writes: As part of ACC’s corporate program involving young corporate employees meeting ACC dogs, giving them a chance to photograph, interact with and write bios for some dogs, dogs are selected based on their ability to mingle with and be handled by many people at one time. Soldier , is one dog who enjoys attention, loves to be pet by many hands and happily interacts with all. It’s an important job at ACC and rockstar Soldier is up for it!!
Young lady brought dog in and claims dog was left at her house by her sister’s boyfriend. She said she attempted to contact them to come pick up their dog but they refuse to answer their phones and she has no other way of getting in touch with them. She brought paper work in with dog.
Profile: 02/21/16 13:21hrs
Soldier is described as energetic and very playful. He was cared for by a family member of his owner for about 3 months. He lived with an 8 yr old and 2 yr old children. He was playful with the children and would even lick thier faces. He likes to jump up on people to solicit attention.
Soldier’s care giver stated he is well behaved when he is approached or touched while eating. He allows petting all over and likes to roll around on the floor with the children. When he is introduced to new people he will bark and attempt to approach them so that he can sniff them. His care giver noted that he responds best when he is told “nice boy” and “good boy”. He will wag his tail a lot and is more prone to listen to commands.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Soldier understands the commands “stay and go.” He is accustomed to being walked at least 4x times a day and always on leash. He is fed dry dog food. He cannot eat Lamb food products because he is allergic to them. Soldier sleeps anywhere in the home.
DOH memo: She stated that she did not directly see the incident. She stated what she believes happened. Soldier has an area separated by a fenced sectional. Lady says the child approached the sectional to say hi, and Soldier then jumped up to say hi. She believes during the interaction Soldier’s teeth grazed the child’s face. She stated that there were no puncture wounds and it did not draw blood. The lady gave both the child and the parent’s first names, stating that she did not know any other information.
Soldier pulls hard on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. Soldier was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He put body between assessor and toy, showing no growling or stiffness. Soldier rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression.

When he is introduced to new people he will bark and attempt to approach them so that he can sniff them. Soldier’s care giver stated he is well behaved when he is approached or touched while eating. He allows petting all over and likes to roll around on the floor with the children”. Soldier appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
