06/24/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/24/15 12:53hrs BASIC INFO Aizen is a male American Staffordshire Terrier almost 2 years old. His previous owner received him from a breeder when he was about 6 weeks old and has no known health problems. He was surrendered to MACC due to the owner’s time constraints and living arrangements. SOCIAL LIFE & PERSONALITY Aizen is very affectionate towards all people. He has lived with children aged 3-10 and was very tolerant and played exuberantly with them. Aizen does tend to jump on everyone described by owner. Aizen also lived with cats and small dogs and was relaxed around them. He tends to ignore unfamiliar dogs on his walks, even when they bark at him and try to engage with him. BEHAVIOR Aizen lives primarily indoors and goes outside for walks when his owner is home. Aizen’s owner stated that when he lived in a house, he was house broken however since living in the city and provided with less walks, he has begun to urinate inside the home. Aizen will avoid going to the bathroom in the home for up to 6 hours. Aizen was bonded to one primary owner and when that person was not home, he would stay in one spot and rarely sought attention. When his primary owner was home, he would follow them everywhere. Aizen would bark when initially being left alone but discontinue after a few minutes. He allows for his owner to touch him and his food while eating. He does not like getting his nails trimmed, he would push his owner’s hand away. He allows unfamiliar people to approach his owner and tries to play with them himself. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Aizen is a lovable, confidant, high activity dog that enjoys long brisk walks and playing tug of war. Aizen knows the commands “sit, stay, give paw and the word outside which lets him know he is going for a walk. Aizen doesn’t care much for dog toys. He was fed dry food and sometimes wet throughout the day. Aizen enjoyed sleeping with his owner in the bed. Aizen enjoys baths, and being hugged and giving kisses. INTAKE Aizen approached Admissions counselor with relaxed body and jumped up on them as well as attempted to lick them. He performed many commands especially when offered treats. Aizen did become more excited when his owner left, with whining, walking back and forth and drooling. However he allowed for Admissions to scan, collar and leash him without any issues.

A volunteer writes: Talk about a million dollar smile! Aizen wears that amazing pittie smile we all love, his eyes sparkle, his tail wags, and all this despite being surrendered to our care as his person no longer had time to take care of him. We’re told that he’s housetrained when walked regularly, is very affectionate, lived with and was tolerant and playful with kids 3-10, lived with cats and small dogs and was relaxed with all, slept in bed with his owner, enjoys baths but not nail trims, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘give paw, is very affectionate and loves being hugged and giving kisses. After spending time with Aizen I can confirm that he’s housetrained, very affectionate, knows sit and give paw (he does that without being asked – just part of his routine), and gives great stand up hugs, and loved coming on my lap to sneak in a kiss! He’s gorgeously groomed, a good weight for his size, and he’s bouncy and fun. Rolling over for a belly rub right on First Avenue attracted smiles from passersby as Aizen wagged his tail at the attention. Aizen is looking for an active home in which lots of exercise snuggles and playtime is on the daily agenda. When Aizen smiles, which is all the time, he’s impossible to resist and is guaranteed to have you smiling too!

Aizen pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. He was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Aizen showed some concerning behavior during the food and rawhide tests -growling, but did not escalate to a snap or bite to the assess-a-hand. He took the toy with a soft body language.

Aizen is an active dog he need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation.
