Dxistics needed ASAP
Chunks is an approx. 11 years old AMPT. He is being surrendered because the owner recently separated from his partner and has nowhere to go. He received Chunks from a breeder when he was a puppy. He has not been to a vet in a very long time. He has no known health issues.
Chunks is very friendly with strangers. He plays exuberantly with adults and loves children. The owner has a 3 year old daughter and an 11 year old step son. Chunks plays exuberantly with the children. He gets along with other dogs and loves to sniff cats. He has not bitten anyone or any other animal.
Chunks is walked three times a day but is left tied up in the home when the owner goes to work. He says that his partner would come home from work and untie him sometimes. He lets him loose during the day when he is home but must keep him tied to prevent him from destroying things. Chunks gets nervous during fireworks and storms. Chunks loves baths and brushing. He does not get his nails trimmed. He does not mind being pushed off of furniture or being restrained. The owner says that he plays rough with chunks and as a result, he snaps and growls when trying to take his food bowl away. He does not mind treats or toys taken away from him, just the food bowl.
For a new family to know
The owner describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and independent. The owners favorite thing about Chunks is that he has been with the owner throughout five relationships. Chunks favorite thing to do is sleep. He loves to play with his squeaky blue tire in the home. He loves to follow the owner around the house and seeks attention. He was being fed kibbles and bits but loves leftover house food more. He barks sometimes when left alone in the home. He knows how to sit. He pulls hard on the leash and likes brisk walks. When left off leash, he will wander away but will return when called.
Behavior during intake
Chunks was very friendly and tolerated all petting. He allowed me to scan(-) and the owner collared him and positioned him for photos. He played with the leash and wanted attention.
Chunks has not had a behavior evaluation but his medical behavior is green
