A volunteer writes: What’s her best trait?, we asked. “She’s super friendly with people and animals” was the response. Surrendered by her family as they are moving where she’s not welcome, they also told us she’s housetrained, crate trained, plays gently and respectfully with children, lived with another dog, loves to play with dogs and cats, and her favorite toys are balls and squeaky toys. Ladi was my first walk of the day, and besides the fact that she was so happy to be chosen first she did a little happy dance, she set up my day beautifully as she’s such a delight. Showing off her housetraining skills the moment we were out the door, we then walked a while, Ladi wagging her tail and giving me a big smile. She’s a pocket pittie delicious little girl. Wanting to meet other dogs we passed it’s clear, as per her former family, that she likes other dogs. In the yard she showed me her sit in exchange for a treat taken very gently, and we’re told she also knows ‘lay down’ and ‘be quiet’. Waiting patiently for me to throw the ball, her eyes dance, her tail wags and she’s off for the chase. Add to Ladi’s resume that she’s an outstanding cuddler, so happy to give and get kisses and petting, curling in and laying her head against my chest. A lap pittie! You’ll probably fall in love with her as quickly as I did, so come on over and ask to meet Ladi. She’ll steal your heart.

Lady A1034858 is a spayed 5 year old American Pitbull Mix. She is being surrendered due to the Owner moving where pets are not allowed.
Around strangers, Ladi is very friendly. She is relaxed, playful and respectful of strangers. When playing with adults she is somewhat rough, but with children she is relaxed and gentle. Ladi has lived with a 2 year old American Pitbull Terrier. She is playful with other dogs and cats as well.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW:
The Owner describes Ladi as playful, affectionate, excitable and friendly. She has a high activity level. One of her best traits is that she is super friendly with people and animals. At home she likes to follow the owner around and loves to play with her squeaky toys and balls. She has been mostly kept indoors and she sleeps on the floor. She is house trained and has accidents a few times a month. She is very well behaved when left alone at home. She is also crate trained and she goes in and out on her own. She knows how to sit, lay down, and to be quiet. She loves to go running.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE:
Ladi had a loose body, wagging tail and open mouth. She took treats and allowed petting and pictures. She loved the squeaky toy and waited patiently for it. She allowed, collaring, scanning (negative) and switching leashes.
Ladi came to our center as an owner surrender on 4/30/2015. It is reported she is friendly towards strangers and plays gentle with children. It is also reported Ladi lived with another dog and is playful with both dogs and cats. Ladi was friendly and social upon intake with a loose body and wagging tail. She walked nicely on leash for her relief walk. Ladi was polite and tolerated all items of the SAFER assessment. She originally jumped up and licked the assessor’s face at the beginning of Look item, but settled in and allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands with soft body. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item. Ladi follwed at the end of leash for Tag item, with a soft body and wagging tail. Due to front leg limping, flank was performed for Squeeze item. Ladi accepted both flank squeezes with no response. She calmly followed the food dish and removed her face from the bowl with a moderate amount of pressure. Ladi had no interest in toys or rawhide. She approached the helper dog with interest, ears forward and loose body. The Behavior Team feels Ladi would do well in an Average home.
