08/05/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/05/15 14:38 Profile wasn’t left due to animal being stray. Behavior During Intake: Angel came into the facility on leash with the finder. She didn’t appear to get along with cats because when she walked past the cats in adoptions she lunged at one of the cages in attempts to get the cat. As far as people she was extremely friendly, body loose, and tail wagging. I was able to scan, collar, and handle Angel with no issues.
09/17/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Angel came to the shelter as a stray. She has a beautiful brown and white cow print coat, and expressive brown eyes to compliment it. Angel is a bit shy as her world is turned upside down, she’s without a home now and in a shelter, on our walk together she was clearly unsure of her new surroundings. Even though Angel was scared she took some treats very gently from my hand, showed me she can sit, and even slowly gave me one of her paws. She is quite a nice girl. Please come to SIACC and meet Angel. Another volunteer writes: Angel appropriately named sits so quietly in her kennel you almost pass her right by. She’s not barking and asking for attention like her kennel mates she keeps to herself and really doesn’t have much interest in the other dogs. If you walk over to her she gives you a happy tail wag and is easily leashed for a walk. Angel walks well on leash and is quite content sniffing around outside and listening to the cars travel past the shelter. She gives me her sad puppy dogs eyes when its time to go back inside so I sit with her a bit longer. Angel is quietly waiting for her forever home. Please consider adding this well behaved girl to your home. You won’t be sorry.
