09/04/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
King A1050301 is a 3yr old male red & white AMPBT mix who was found in a park at 2months old and is being surrendered due to the owner having to undergo surgery. King was last seen at a veterinarian almost 2yrs ago and currently has no known health issues/injuries. King is friendly with strangers but will bark initially. He’s lived with children ages 8months, 4yrs & 7yrs. Due to his size the owner doesn’t allow them to play together because they’re afraid he’ll knock them down/hurt them unintentionally but King will lick their faces and walk away. The owner stated King was over protective of the 8month old. When playing with adults King is gentle exuberant and at times can be a little rough/overly excited. King has lived with a litter of his puppies and was relaxed & playful with them. When he sees or is around a female dog he’ll attempt to mount them. When King sees Cats on the street he barks and lunges at them, the owner hasn’t let him close enough to see if he’ll actually go after one. King has never bitten/scratched a person or animal. King will only “go” indoors if you take too long to let him out and he’ll bark to let you know he needs to go. During thunderstorms/fireworks he’ll bark and go to the window to investigate. King isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys & treats touched/moved or being restrained/held. King isn’t allowed on the furniture. He hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting, he hasn’t been brushed or had his nails trimmed since he was a puppy. During bath time he’ll struggle to get away. King is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, excitable, mellow & pushy (at times) with a very high activity level. King’s favorite activity is to run. When the owner is home King will follow them around. He enjoys ball, squeaky, stuffed, chew & rope toys. He’ll play fetch but won’t give back the ball. He’s an indoor only dog who’s walked now 1x a day but used to be walked 3-4x a day where he pulls very hard on the leash. King sleeps in a crate, eats dry & wet Pedigree dog food 1x a day since may due to the owner wanting him to lose weight so it’ll be easier to walk him. King’s given cheese as a treat. He’s house broken. When left alone in the home King is in a crate with food & water and he won’t “go” in it, he’s in the crate about 18hrs a day. His known commands are “sit” & “come here”. At night the owner would let him off leash to run. During intake King allowed handling.
09/10/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: King was found abandoned in a park as a tiny pup . It was with a heavy heart that his finder and present owner relinquished him to us, at the age of two. As the owner has been injured, he is unable to handle King anymore. King has been beautifully cared for. He is well nourished, healthy and wears an elegant milk chocolate and mocca coat. He is a bit tense and lost here at the care center. Although he was crated for many hours, a kennel is not what he was used to. He lived with kids, had a loving master, a home…It is pretty tough. King pulls a little on the leash, seems to be housetrained, comes when called and sits on command. He seeks comfort in his caretaker, comes quickly on the lap for kisses or leans really tight to her legs. He is said to like toys and balls but has not yet demonstrated these skills. He is excited seeing other dogs and I do hope that he will enjoy his playgroup time with other pooches. King would love to be a beloved pet again. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center. He is waiting for you.
