07/02/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I’m a sucker for chunky pitties, but little did I know what this one had in store for me – she is amazing! She can be a little shy at first, but Jameson warms up to be irresistibly sweet. She is easy on leash – waddling along and often looking up to check in, and seems housebroken. She loves treats and knows “sit” and “down.” Jameson previously lived with another dog and when we’ve met others through a fence she wags her tail and seems friendly as she checks them out. I’m told in playgroup she sometimes appoints herself referee, barking at puppies when they get too rowdy, which only reminds me of my own dog and makes me fall more for her! When I have her off leash she occasionally barks at people that approach, but softens when she realizes they are no threat. When I stop to talk to someone in a car she props her paws on the open window and peeks in, wagging her tail as she sizes up the empty passenger seat. She doesn’t seem demanding at all, but is very affectionately and seems so grateful to receive attention. When I call her over she wags her tail sort of submissively and sits at my feet. A little petting and she leans into me and lifts a front paw as if she might go belly up, and then it’s paws on my shoulders and kisses to my face! She makes the softest, strong eye contact and her smile is one to beat. I LOVE JAMESON. The only thing I don’t love about her is that she has caused me a lot of worry – worry that she will be passed over and mistaken as just another black and white adult pit bull. She is a treasure – please come meet this special girl at Brooklyn ACC!
07/06/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
7/6/15 Update Jameson’s kennel presentation has been declining. She will growl in her kennel when approached. When coaxed or spoken to softly, she will get up and move to the front of the kennel then lip curl. Jameson remains social with people when out of her kennel. Due to her conflicted kennel behavior, it is best that Jameson be placed into an adoptive or foster home quickly. It is recommended that she be placed into an experienced home with no young children. 6/25/15 SAFER Jameson previously lived with two adults and children ages 4 and 2 1/2 years old. She was reported to be relaxed, playful, and tolerant towards everyone in the household, but she may growl at the children if they jump on her while she is sleeping. Jameson also lived with another dog and the owner stated they were playful and respectful towards each other. It was noted that Jameson is friendly when her owner touched her food bowl, and when taking toys or treats away. It was also noted that Jameson can be hard to control and doesn’t like to take baths or to go outside in the rain.
