Royal is a 1 year old pit mix. The previous owner is not aware of any medical issues for Royal. Royal was found as a stray and followed the owner home without a leash one day.
Royal has lived with 2 adults and children of various ages since she was found as a stray 2 months ago: 12, 11, 8, 7 and 2. She has played gentley with both adults and children. She has also lived with two other dogs, both unaltered, an 11 year old male pit bull and a medium sized female pit bull who is 10 years old. Around strangers Royal is said to be friendly and outgoing; she does not hesitate saying hello to people.
Royal has not shown behavior concerns in the home and thoroughly enjoys being around his house mates. The dogs in the home didn’t typically have a lot of toys available to them because they would always play with each other. Royal typically plays exuberantly, but is also said to be gentle and is described as having a high energy level. Royal usually pulls hard on the leash, she has spent most of her time either in the home or the backyard. The previous owner said that she is not bothered when you touch treats or food and eliminates in the backyard.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
The previous owners said that although Royal likes to play with the other dogs in the home, she also is desribed as thinking everything else in the home is available as a toy. Royal liked chewing on household items, including the clothes and the children’s toys. She likes being around people and is described as very social. Royal had a favorite spot on the bed upstairs when she was left alone. The previous owner said Royal knows the following commands: sit, come and give paw. Royal was fed Pedigree dry food.
Behavior upon intake:
Royal seemed to be excited to see the handler and immediately jumped up and started licking. She was playfully popping when she was on the leash outside and wanted to greet each person she came across.

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When greeting new dogs through the gate, Royal will often get very excited and begin to bark and paw at the gate. Royal is high energy and can get over aroused when a playful dog over greets her, she tends to over correct and quick snap but doesn’t make contact. However, when off leash with her housemate (Jay), Royal is tolerant, relaxed, does not correct and often explores the yard with the company of Jay.
During her initial medical exam, Royal was easy to handle.
Royal’s previous owner describes her as a high energy dog. Royal jumped on assessor during assessment, this jumping appeared to be aimed at soliciting attention and interaction. Royal will need daily mental and physical stimulation to keep her engaged and exercised, such as daily walks, runs, exercise, and play. We recommend long lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide and seek games to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
