12/03/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/03/16 19:30 Precious is friendly and outgoing around strangers, small children, and adults. She plays gentle and exuberantly with both. She’s never lived or spent time with other dogs but has lived with another cat who is her friend. They played gently with each other. Precious has never bitten another dog or animal. During loud noises such as fireworks and thunderstorms, Precious isn’t bothered and carries on. She doesn’t mind when her owner takes away her food, toys, and treats and allows her to push her off of furniture and hold her. Precious isn’t bothered when she’s awoken from her slumber and likes getting brushed. She doesn’t mind baths and has gotten her nails clipped before from the pet shop who said she did well. She isn’t bothered when strangers approach her owner or home. Precious’s owner describers her as affectionate and mellow with a medium activity level. When she’s ready to play she enjoys jumping around the sofa cushion and playing fetch with balls and squeeky toys. Precious is mostly kept indoors and when her owner’s home, will follow her around or be in the same room as her. She’s very house-trained and rarely has accidents inside. She enjoys going potty outdoors on cement and dirt. When home alone, Precious is well-behaved. She has never been crate-trained and knows sit and down (in Spanish). For exercise, Precious enjoys slow walks on leash and does not pull. When off-leash, Precious stays close by her owners side. She only eats wet food and her favorite food is anything with chicken in it. Her favorite treats are also chicken-based. On intake, Precious was shaking once her owner left. She went between the counselor’s legs and waited, watching the door. She stood still while the counselor collared her and allowed the counselor to pick her up and place her on the counter. Precious wouldn’t look directly at the camera and kept trying to leap off of the counter. She allowed the counselor to pick her back up and place her down on the ground.
