12/05/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/05/16 18:35 BASIC INFO Max A1098768 is a 4 year old neutered APBT mix. His family got him as a gift from a friend and surrendered him with another dog Gucci A1032188 due to allergies. SOCIALIZATION Max is friendly with strangers. He lived with a medium male and a small female dog and was relaxed and playful with them. They played gently-exuberantly. Max hasn’t bit anyone. BEHAVIOR Max doesn’t mind storms. He doesn’t mind when someone takes his food/treat/toy, moves him off furniture, bathes him, brushes him, trims his nails, or restrains him. He’s friendly with strangers who approach his home/family. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Max’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, happy, goofy, excitable, and medium energy. They love how happy and friendly he is. His favorite activities include playing and running around with other dogs, making friends with new people, and cuddling and watching TV with his family. Max follows his family. He plays fetch, chase, and tug and likes stuffed and squeaky toys. He lived inside and rarely went on walks. He doesn’t pull on the leash. He sleeps on a dog bed and ate dry and wet Beneful foods twice daily. He’s trained to potty on wee-wee pads and doesn’t have accidents. He’s well-behaved while home alone and sits or lets go when asked. INTAKE Max had a loose wiggly body and wagging tail. He jumped up and leaned into me. He maintained this while I scanned him (+), collared him, and photographed him. He was only slightly tense during vaccines and didn’t resist or vocalize.
12/20/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Max has been shaken by the change in his life, but rallies when he finds a friend, be it two legged or four legged. He’s soft and gentle, sweet and easy. He’s the shy person who looks like he wants to be left alone, but is so happy when someone takes the time and reaches out. Like all shy people, he’s a joy to be with when we take the time to draw that person out. Good on leash, we enjoyed our walk, Max telling me about his hobbies (snuggling close to his person being one of them), what he likes to watch on TV, his favorite snack food, and his favorite toys. In the park, he sat by my feet, putting his head on my lap for some petting as we grew closer. Once off leash in a pen, Max greets other dogs passing by with an easy tail wag, and sits close to the gate when another dog is on the other side. He’s enjoyed romping with others in playgroups and had lived well with two other dogs. Max comes when called, and again sits close to me, nudging me for petting. Fed and cared for with love before joining us, Max is looking for someone to peel away his reserve and reveal the friendly, affectionate, goofy, personality we know and are told Max is.
Another volunteer writes: How could you not love Max? This boy, so shy and uncomfortable when he first joined us, now welcomes people to his kennel with an eager tail wag hoping to look adorable enough to entice a volunteer for a walk. And it works like a charm! He loves to be out for a walk to show off his potty skills as well as his leash walking skills. What a rockstar! He loves to romp with other dogs in playgroup and has lived with other dogs. He played so hard and so long yesterday that I came upon him sitting with a staffer, leaning against her as she pet him, his eyes closing in happy bliss from being pet as well as from being played out. He was pooped! It was such a sweet scene and I imagine Max in a home, playing with his people and/or other dogs, getting lots of love and then curling up on his bed for a nap. Can we make his (and my) wish come true?

Recommend slow introduction, allowing Max to approach his new adopters on his own time-frame. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Tolerant: These dogs are typically non-reactive on leash and will be either friendly or indifferent off leash. They can typically tolerate some rude behavior from other dogs and can be described as having a long fuse. They show relaxed, appropriate, easy-going body language around others. PLAYGROUP: Max offers polite greeting to other calm dogs in the care center. He at times engages in soft play, and offers appropriate corrections when uncomfortable with certain styles of play. The behavior department feels that Max may be placed into a home with other respectful dogs pending slow introductions. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/5/16 During his initial medical exam Max appeared relaxed.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_No children (under 13) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Max has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Max easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
