12/17/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
Basic Info Coogi A1060794 is 9 yr. Old tan & white female AM PIT BULL TER mix who was surrendered because of a new baby being introduced to the home. Coogi has been with her family for two years after being given to her by a friend who couldn’t keep her anymore. Socialization Coogi is described as being very friendly with strangers, greeting them with a happy wagging tail. Coogi lived with two children ages 7months and 3 yrs. old. and didnt resond well to the children pulling on her tail in which she would growl and walk away. Coogi was described as not getting along with other dogs and would begin to bark loudly and pull on her leash trying to get to the other dog. Behavior Coogi didn’t show any food guarding habits. Coogi would initiate play with her toys and often let the older child sleep on her at night. Coogi enjoys being groomed but doesn’t enjoy bath time and would often try to hide when the bath was turned on. For a new Family to Know Coogi is friendly and very affectionate. She enjoys big cuddle sessions with her human sibling and mom. She is a very active dog who loves long runs in the park and games of fetch. She pulls on the leash especially when other dogs are in the area. Coogi is not house trained but does use the wee wee pad. Coogi doesn’t like her tail being pulled and may growl and walk away.

During Intake Coogie had a loose wiggly body, high wagging tail and open mouth. She allowed staff to scan (-), collar and photograph her. Coogi wouldn’t leave the front area until her owner left the lobby. When being taken to the back she pulled slightly on the leash and walked right into her kennel.
12/22/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Coogi lies like a queen on her throne………….but it isn’t a throne…it’s a kuranda bed in her kennel in the shelter. Coming forward as I open the door she’s leashed easily and out we go. Coogi was surrendered to our care as there is a new baby who joined the 3 yr old in the house, and when the toddler would pull her tail she’d growl and walk away. We’re told she’s friendly with strangers, enjoys being groomed but doesn’t like baths, loves treats, loves long runs in the park, playing fetch, and is wee wee pad trained. Coogi went potty as soon as we were outside so with some structure and training will surely learn to use the outside ‘facilities’ regularly. Coogi let the toddler sleep on her, and would initiate play with her toys. Coogi showed me her nice leash manners, and off leash in the backyard leaned into me for petting, starting wagging her tail as we got to know one another, and enjoyed playing with a plush toy. She’s a lovely middle aged lady who enjoyed being with her family and is confused as to why her life has changed. When our time together was over she hopped right back into her kennel and settled down on her bed. If a calm, sweet, gentle, nicely behaved dog by your side is your ideal, than Coogi is who you want to meet. She combines the best of everything that comes with age and experience. Come meet her today.
