Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information:Bubble is a black and tan, possible 12 years old small dog. The dog was found alone near a park and school. Finder noticed the dog and decided to bring the dog to ACC.
How is this dog around strangers? Unknown behavior around dogs. Finder stated that the dog tried to air snap when picking the dog up. He was unable to see and due to his possible blindness she believed the dog become startled. The dog allowed gentle handling.
Behavior Notes:During intake counselor noticed the dog possibly lost his eye sight. Counselor was able to wrap the towel around the dog and allowed to be pet but become startled and growled when attempting to collar.
Details on my behavior are…
Summary (1): Bubbles was brought in as a stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown.
7/1: Due to the extreme heat and humidity, we did not bring Bubble outside to playgroup given his age and medical condition.
