9/6/15 10:17 Basic information: Redd is roughly 5 yr. old male AM Pit Bull mix. The Owner got him from a neighbor; he has owned Redd for 5 months. The owner surrendered Redd and Mackie A1050532 because the owner can no longer care for them. Redd has no health problems and has never been taken to a vet. Socialization: Around strangers Redd is friendly playful. Redd has not lived with children but he is relaxed and playful around children and adults he does not know. Redd has lived with Mackie A1050532 another 5yr old AM Pit Bull mix and is relaxed and playful with him. Redd has never bitten anyone. He has never been outside of his yard and is very nervous of walking anywhere, the owner is not sure how Redd would be around dogs other than Mackie. Behavior: The owner stats that Redd is not bothered when some moves his food or treats while he is eating, when someone takes his toys away or when someone disturbs him while sleeping. Redd likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had his nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or his home he approaches them in a friendly manor. The owner does not know how Redd is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks. Redd have never been outside of the yard so he is very fearful of another surroundings. For a new family to know: The owner describes Redd as friendly and playful with a medium activity level. His favorite activity is to play fetch with his owner. In the home Redd tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Redd sleeps in a kennel in the owner’s basement. Redd was fed Gravy Train dry and dog food three times a day. He is house trained and rarely has accidents in the home, when outside he goes to the bathroom on or around grass. Redd knows the commands “sit “and “lay down”. For exercise Redd is used to playing loose in the yard and has never been walked outside. He is allowed to play off the leash in the yard, he wanders off some to explore the surrounding area but comes back when called. Behavior during intake: Redd was relaxed with lose body, when approached by staff Redd would not walk and refused to move but allowed to be picked up and moved (he seemed to enjoy being held), he allowed to be scanned (-), collared and placing in dog kennel.
09/21/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Redd was so shy in his kennel we sat and chatted for about 30 minutes as he gradually inched himself forward. We chatted as I pet him, and when I stopped he’d nudge me with his nose to carry on. Finally, bravely stepping out, his tail wagging we made our way to the backyard. His tail never stops wagging, and wags harder when I’m petting or talking to him…it’s almost like its on a mechanical pivot…wag, wag, wag, wag… Redd is a gorgeous boy in a brownish red coat, well fed and as sweet as can be. He went potty as soon as we were out the door confirming that he’s housetrained per his former owner. Surrendered with his friend Mackie (A1050532) we’re told that Redd never had much socialization outside the home, and was never walked on the street. He’s housetrained, knows ‘sit’ and ‘lay down’, loves to play fetch, likes baths and brushing, is relaxed around kids, and shy but playful with adults. Redd is awesome! He followed me around the pen, loved to be pet, greeted dogs of all sizes through the fence with an easy tail wag. We ventured on leash to the street and he walked perfectly by my side; I was his safety, his security and he was perfect. Redd is confused and I feel his sense of betrayal at being here without his family and without his friend Mackie close by. He’s making the best out of his situation and is doing an admirable job. I love love love his bravery, his soft personality and is ability to make friends. Come meet him, so that he can add you as a friend…..maybe forever? A volunteer updates: Redd has figured out that someone standing in front of his kennel with a leash means an outing! He gets all wiggle butt in anticipation, is leashed easily and out we go. He’s soooooooooo housetrained, taking care of his business is his first priority, and then its all snuggles and cuddles, and more wiggle butt. His delightful manners, his motto of “good will to all”, and is ever wagging tail has made him a staff and volunteer favorite. He’s an awesome boy who thought he was going back home to his person but that fell through.He told me he’s looking for a new person or family to love as that’s what he does best. And I can vouch for that! Ask to meet him today.
