A volunteer writes: Gorgeously groomed, tail waggingly friendly and with the cutest head tilt on the planet, Future was delighted to be out for a walk on a nice late summer afternoon. Surrendered with his mom Mia A1091136 as new babies in the family have allergies, Future comes with a glowing resume from his former people. He lived well with children of all ages, doesn’t guard his things, loves attention, is friendly to all, loves to play with toys, is housebroken when walked 2-3 times a day and is confident and active. I loved meeting this great pup. He pulls slightly on the leash after showing off his housetraining skills, jumped up on the park bench to sit with me, snuggling in close and giving me kisses. His tail never stops wagging, he loves a good butt scratch, and off leash we enjoyed a great game of tug. Every time I let him win (shhhhhh – our secret), he’d bring the toy back to me to play again. His friendly, playful energy is a delight and he’ll do well in a home where he’ll have plenty of exercise and lots of loving. His former family says he gets along with other dogs, and in his first playdate he greeted the helper dog. Future has been gorgeously taken care of (as has his mother) and was clearly a beloved family member. He asked me to remind everyone that the Future is NOW, and he’s hoping you’ll stop by to meet him today.
PROFILE: 09/25/16 11:11
Future A1091137 is a 1yr 3mth old male tan & white American Staffordshire terrier mix who was born at home and is being surrendered along with his mom Mia A1091136 due to family conflict/allergies. They were both last seen by a veterinarian in early 2016 and currently have no known health issues/injuries.
Around strangers Future is friendly/outgoing. He’s lived with children of different ages and was gentle, exuberant, relaxed and playful with them also the adults in the home & Mia (she’ll lick him and lay with him to comfort him). He hasn’t been around cats and according to the owner Future gets along with dogs he sees/plays with on the street. Future has never bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Future isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being brushed or being disturbed while sleeping/resting. For bath time Future (& Mia) will try & jump out of the tub. He hasn’t had his nails trimmed and if someone approaches the home/family member Future will bark & jump on them for attention/affection.
For A New Family to Know:
Future is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, excitable & independent with a high-very high activity level. Future enjoys playing with ball, squeaky toys and games of fetch, chase, wrestling & tug. Future is mostly an indoor only dog that sleeps anywhere & is walked 2-3x a day where he pulls on his leash. Future eats wet & dry Pedigree 2x a day, is housebroken and his known commands are “sit”, “stay” & “come” that he takes a few minutes to listen to.
Future allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of including positioning him during his photo session. Future then walked alongside me to his kennel where he stopped at Mia’s kennel first and she began licking his face through the bars as he pressed his face against it.
Future’s previous owner cites “Future gets along with dogs he sees/plays with on the street”. When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Future approaches and greets, then eventually becomes more intent on mounting. He briefly backs up when offered correction from the female helper dog, however eventually approaches again. Future is currently unaltered. The behavior team feels that Future should require in-depth consultation on the behaviors observed in our care center, and slow introduction with any resident dogs in a future home.
