Owner has had Anubis for 4 years but had to surrender due to personal problems. Socialization: According to the owner, around strangers Anubis is friendly and playful. He likes to say hi to everyone and give kisses. He has never been around small children therefore behavior is unknown. Owner had a cat in the home & stated that he was always respectful of her cat.

For a New Family to Know: Anubis is described as playful, pushy, excitable, affectionate, feaful of loud noises, independent and friendly with a very high activity level.

He would have a few accidents a month if the owner did not walk him on time. Anubis is crate trained and would stay there when owner would leave the house or else he would destroy household items. Owner did not have a yard so she is not sure how he would be if left alone in the yard. For exercise, owner would take Anubis on slow walks on the leash. Anubis pulls very hard on the leash.

Behavior during intake: Anubis was relaxed during intake. When I approached him, he jumped on me, body relaxed. I was able to scan him for a mc, and take his picture without any issues. I was not able to collar him due to him jumping around too much.

Anubis is described as playful, pushy, excitable, affectionate, fearful of loud noises, and independent. During intake, he was relaxed and affectionate, allowed all handling. Anubis was friendly, loose and wiggly upon entering SAFER assessment area. He pulled out of assessor’s hands on all three Look attempts, jumped up onto assessor. Anubis leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, open mouth, tail wagging. He followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, a bit distracted. Anubis did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. He showed minimal interest in Toy. Anubis approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, relaxed. The Behavior Team feels Anubis would do best with an Average adopter who can provide daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, play. He should continue with crating to decrease any destruction of household items when alone in the home as previously reported. Anubis would do best with durable toys such as Kongs and Nylabones due to his history of destroying soft plush toys. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2.
