11/09/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/09/15 12:20 BASIC INFO Blaze A1057357 is an approximately 5 year old Akita/Pitbull Mix. Blaze was a gift to the Owner from his cousin. He is being surrendered to the shelter because his owner does not have time for him. Owner has had Blaze for 6 months. Blaze has not been to a veterinarian recently. SOCIALIZATION Blaze is friendly and approachable by strangers. He has never lived with any children. Blaze plays gentle with adults. He has never lived with another dog, and is best suited for a home where he is the only dog. The Owner kept him away from other dogs because he would growl at the other dogs. He has never bitten anyone. BEHAVIOR Blaze does not have any behavior issues. During storms or loud noises, he is scared. Blaze does not like you to tyouch his food bowl, water bowl, toy or rawhide away. He will growl at you if you try. Owner onlky bathed him once, and stated that Blaze struggled. If an unfamiliar approaches the home, he barks. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Blazwe is best described as friendly, affectionate and playful. He has a medium to high energy level. Blaze loves to run. When home, he follows you around. He likes to play with balls and squeaky toys. He will chase a ball, but will not give it back. He was kept mostly indoors. Blaze eats Rachel Ray Brand dry food or Beneful. He is house trained, and goes potty on any surface outside. When left home alone, he is well behaved. He listens to sit, stay, down and come here. For exercise he would be walked on the leash, or off leash at the dog park if he was alone. When off leash, he wanders but returns when called. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE Blaze allowed all handling, scanning and photos to be taken. He went right into his kennel.
Blaze is our mystery man of the evening. He’s a gorgeous mix of a prized Akita blended with a pit bull and he’s reached his middle years. Blaze’s owner barely screeched to a halt in order to toss Blaze into the Manhattan ACC lobby, saying that he has NO TIME for his BFF. Blaze’s owner stopped long enough to say that Blaze has not been socialized around other dogs and that he doesn’t like anyone to touch his food. Blaze ranked as a New Hope Only adoption case along with a recommendation that he be the only dog in the household. Will Blaze think that they’re taking him to meet his family when they harness him for the walk to the Euthanasia Room tomorrow? Of course all dogs need to be monitored especially closely during the first weeks in a new home. Are we dreaming to think of a home and family for this blond boy with big brown eyes? Blaze is moderate in size at only 53-pounds. Do you know someone who’s willing to squeeze a little closer together on the couch?
