07/15/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/15/15 19:33 BASIC INFO Neptune is a young neutered male APBT/American Bulldog mix. His first family was having personal problems and surrendered him to ACC but was able to reclaim him. Their personal problems returned and they and gave him to a friend. That friend’s family doesn’t have the time to care for Neptune so surrendered him to ACC 1 day later. SOCIALIZATION Neptune lived with 4 children of all ages in his first home. He’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and exuberant with them. He’s friendly and outgoing with strangers and hasn’t bit anyone. He’s relaxed around and sniffs other dogs he meets on walks and at the pet store. BEHAVIOR Neptune behaved well during his bath with his new owner today. He was relaxed in the car and lied down with his feet stretched behind him, sometimes looking out the window. In his new home, Neptune barked and snapped at his family when they tried to take a new toy from him. They’re unsure whether or not this behavior was playful. He didn’t bite. He had never exhibited this behavior in his previous home. It only occurred in his new home, where he only lived today. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Neptune’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, and high energy. He lies around his family during the day, either stretched out with his feet behind him or on his back. He ate dry food. He’s very well housetrained and never has accidents. He potties anywhere outside. He went for brisk walks, walks nicely on his leash, and knows “sit.” He’s well-behaved when home alone. INTAKE Neptune had a loose, wiggly body, wagging tail, and open mouth during intake and handling-scan (+), collar, petting, switching leashes. He took treats gently. He jumped up and licked us. He stood next to us and leaned into us while we pet him. He ran around, threw his squeaky toy into the air, pounced on it, lied down, squeaked it, and repeated. He often lied down with his rear legs stretched behind him and often lied on his back while we rubbed his tummy, sometimes wiggling his butt. He went right into his kennel when we asked him to.
05/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Devastatingly handsome and eager as a puppy, Neptune is 80-plus pounds of wiggly-waggly fun! His looks are both dreamy and comical with those mesmerizing green eyes and sculpted cheeks front and center and at the back, a cute caboose that moves like a dashboard hula dancer, always swaying to and fro. Neptune likes to be petted and he enjoys the company of other dogs, greeting them with wonderful good manners. He’s a great walker who keeps a clean den and seems to be house trained and his ‘sit’ is second to none, even when he’s leaning over the ball all I have to do is ask and down the wigglebutt goes! He believes that toys belong in his mouth, not my hand, but he doesn’t guard them and when I offer a treat he takes it delicately from my fingers. Neptune is a big boy with big energy, he can get quite jumpy at times and when he’s focused on a chew toy or a plushie it’s best to just stand back and let him shake the dickens out of it. But behind all the bluster there’s an even bigger heart and with his smarts and eagerness to please I could see him adding any number of new tricks to his repertoire. Neptune could no longer be cared for by his owner and after a brief two-week stay in a friend’s home (where he was very well-behaved when left alone in the house) he was noted as ‘very excited coming into the Care Center wagging his tail.’ If this is how Neptune reacts to a stay with us, imagine how happy he’ll be when he realizes you’ve come to take him home, for good. Don’t miss this chance to add a funny, friendly and drop-dead gorgeous hunk to your active life, ask to meet Neptune today!

Neptune barked and snapped at his family when they tried to take a new toy from him”. Neptune is a very active and jumpy dog. Neptune appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. When Neptune becomes aroused he is slow to de-escalate and sometimes requires intervention to help redirect him to more appropriate behaviors. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experience no child home. Look: 3.
