04/29/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/29/15 13:29 Basic Info: Engine is a 6 year old male dog who has no known injuries or medical problems. He was surrendered to the shelter due to owner’s medical issues. Social Life and Personality: According to the owner he has been around children before and is relaxed and playful with them and plays exuberantly. He has the same behavior with small dogs (i.e. shih tzu’s, Maltese’ Chihuahuas, etc) but will become very fearful and try to flee when interacting with large dogs. He is relaxed and respectful around cats (lived with A0834622). He is house trained, kept mostly indoors, and has a medium level of energy. Behavior: He has not bitten anyone or any animal before. He is not bothered when food, toys treats, or other objects were taken from him. He was not bothered when he was given a bath or had his coat brushed but he did become fearful and attempt to hide behind owner when unfamiliar people approached the house or family member. New Family Info: He knows the commands sit, stay, and lay down. He is sued to brisk walks on leash or off leash dog parks. When off leash he would stay by owners’ side. He plays with Kong toys (was given a red one and broke it. Would recommend a black colored kong toy be given) and he has never been crate trained. He will follow owner around the home and when left home alone is well behaved. He was fed dry food (Blue Buffalo). Intake Behavior: While owner was present Engine would approach extended hand to sniff and then retreat behind owner. He allowed to be scanned (negative), collared, pictured, and leashed without aggression. Once owner left the room he would approach admission counselor and sit by his side. He was given treats and would respond t the sit command given. When he took treats it was gentle from hand or he caught in the air. When touched/pet after owner left had soft, relaxed body and would brush against hand.

A volunteer writes: There is nothing, I mean nothing, like an ear to ear pittie grin….. Engine has the best smile ever….he poses for pictures like a super model, rocking his bowtie and looking ever so dashing. His amazing leash manners, gentle personality and gorgeous good looks made him my favorite of the day. Surrendered along with his cat housemate due to their owner’s ill health, Engine joins us with glowing comments. He’s housetrained, relaxed with small children, lived with and is respectful towards cats, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘lie down’, and likes and interacts well with all small dogs. He’s fearful and will try to flee from larger dogs. He’s never been crate trained and is well behaved when left alone in the house. His coat is as soft as velvet, he’s been well fed and obviously much loved. He likes making new friends and will jump up to greet them, not realizing he’s not a Yorkie! He showed me his sit and gently swept his reward treat from my hand. Off leash in the backyard he found a tennis ball and was content to amuse himself with it, before laying down with it between his paws. Rolling over for a belly rub, we both sighed with pleasure. Engine has lived with and loved a family and would love to have that again, and we’d love to have that for him. His gentle, mellow and easy personality earned him a rockstar behavior assessment indicating he’ll be a good fit in just about any home. . I mean come on…..this is a big dog who prefers small dogs and cats! Stop by and meet him today.

Engine pulls hard on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Engine was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language.
