08/19/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/19/16 09:05 Basic Info: Dallas A1086077 is a 9month old neutered male Dachshund/AMPBT mix who was found as a stray 5months ago and is being surrendered due to personal problems. He was seen by a veterinarian in early 2016 and currently has no known health issues. Socialization: Around strangers Dallas is shy for a few minutes. He’s lived with a 9yr old and was relaxed, affectionate & playful with them & also with the adult. He hasn’t been around/lived with cats. Dallas likes to play with dogs at the park. Dallas hasn’t bitten/scratched any person/animal. Behavior: Dallas is housebroken & will whine when he wants to “go” but he’ll “go” indoors if you take too long to take him out. His behaviors are unknown for the following: having his nails trimmed or being held/restrained. Dallas isn’t bothered if someone unfamiliar approaches the home/family member or with having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved. He doesn’t mind baths but at times will try to get away. According to the owner Dallas appears to be fearful of sticks and or rolled up paper (resembling a stick). He will become tense, bark, growl and sometimes lunge. For A New Family To Know: Dallas is described as friendly, affectionate, mellow (at times), playful & excitable with a medium-high activity level. The owner likes how good he is and Dallas enjoys resting. When the owner is home he follows them around sometimes. Dallas enjoys ball, squeaky & stuffed toys. He’s a mostly indoor dog who’s walked 1-3x a day. He sleeps around the home and eats dry & wet Pedigree food 2-3x a day. When left home alone he isn’t destructive. Dallas’s known commands are “sit”, “come” & “stay”. Intake Behavior: Dallas had a semi tense body when approached. He allowed handling with assistance from the owner. Dallas allowed to be scanned (+), collared & taken pictures of. Dallas was then picked up/carried and placed into a kennel with ease.
08/23/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Dallas’ bedding is clean. He has water and even a treat. “You want to go out and be in company, right?” Dallas smells my hand and licks it. He is at his door and is leashed in no time. Off to the street we go. Dallas attends to business immediately. He does not mark his territory. He walks so well on the leash. What a beautiful pup he is, we are told, a cross between a Daschund and a Pittie. Dallas has been very well cared for. He looks healthy, a little plump and is beautifully dressed in a chocolate and mokka shiny coat. He owns sparkling golden eyes. Dallas, what a big name for a little dog. Dallas is unsure here at the care center. He is a babe at 9 months of age and had a home just yesterday. He appears at times assertive and happy, walking tail up in the street but submissive, too, when I pet him. He loves to be caressed, scratched on the butt and rolls on the side for belly rubs. He likes to come on my lap and be hugged. I am not clear how Dallas is with other dogs. His former owner says that he plays well with his peers. We met a few on our walk, uneventfully, but then he went all excited and barking and bowing when he saw two Pitties going by us. Dallas comes with good recommendations and even lived and played well with a nine year old child. He would not like sticks or what ever ressembles one and would bark and lunge at them (my dog hates vacuum cleaners). Little Dallas would like you to consider him very soon and join your pack. He is still a puppy, most likely with some issues (most of them do, like kids), and will need experienced, caring and loving hands to become the wonderful adult his own mother wanted him to be. Dallas is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to be yours. Another volunteer writes: Dallas has figured out “how to win friends and influence people”: 1) look adorable in your kennel 2) get bouncy with happiness on a walk 3) go potty right away 4) lean in close to your person to watch the world go by 5) take treats gently 6) never stop wagging your tail. This little tootsie roll of a boy had a family and a life he loved before being surrendered to our care so had a lot of adjusting to do. Fun and friendly he’s looking for a new lap to settle into, and a new family to love and play with.
