Basic Information: Osiris is a 5 year old neutered Rottweiler who was surrendered because his owner no longer had time to care for him. His previous owner got him from a breeder when he was 3 weeks old. He has no known injuries or health problems; the last time he went to the vet was last year. The two things his previous owner liked most about him were; he’s protective and obedient.
Social Life and Personality: Around children 7 months and 4 years of age, Osiris is relaxed and playful and when he plays he is gentle. Around other dogs Osiris is also relaxed and playful and exuberant when he plays. Around cats he is very tolerant. Osiris is house-trained but without his scheduled he has accidents a few times a week. He was kept indoors only and has a low activity level. Osiris can be described as playful, confident, excitable, affectionate, independent and friendly.
Behavior: Osiris has never bitten a person or another animal. When food bowl is touched while Osiris was eating, he reacts by eating at the same pace, but blocked his owners hand with his body so they can’t take food away. He was friendly if treats or toys were taken away from him while he was eating or playing. When his previous owner gave him a bath he was friendly. He isn’t bothered if his nails are trimmed or if his coat is brushed. He was friendly if he was held/restrained. If an unfamiliar person approached the home Osiris would bark/growl. He wasn’t bothered if an unfamiliar person approached his owner or if he was disturbed while sleeping.
For a New Family to Know: Osiris knows how to sit, come, stay, lay and high 5 on command. For exercise he went on brisk walks or to off-leash dog parks 2-3X a day. His favorite toys were balls and squeaky toys. He liked to play tug and fetch. Osiris was crate trained and does well for 4 hours. When his previous owner was home Osiris would tend to either follow him around or stay in his favorite spot. When left alone in the home Osiris was well-behaved. When off-leash he would stay close. Osiris isn’t bothered by storm/fireworks. He ate dry Science Diet and slept anywhere on the floor
Behavior during intake: Osiris was collared, leashed and muzzled by his previous owner because his body became stiff; he stared, growled and lunged when staff approached. During vaccinations Osiris sat and did not react to bear hug or injections also went into kennel without hesitation.
