05/28/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/28/15 19:02 BASIC INFO Scooby’s family adopted him from AC&C 3 years ago and surrendered him because they’re having a baby. SOCIALIZATION Scooby used to bark at strangers but now is friendly and outgoing with him. He lived with a 3-6 year old child and was relaxed, playful, and extremely tolerant with him. Scooby plays exuberantly with adults and gently with children. He lived with a female Pit Bull and was relaxed, playful, and tolerant with her. A male Shih Tzu visited and he was gentle and respectful with him. He’s friendly with dogs on walks and at the dog park and plays exuberantly with others. He lived with a cat and was respectful of him. Scooby hasn’t bit anyone. BEHAVIOR Scooby has no known behavior issues. He doesn’t mind storms. He’s friendly with strangers that approach his home/family and when woken up. He doesn’t mind when someone takes his food/treat/toy, bathes him, brushes him, or holds/restrains him. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Scooby’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, excitable, obedient, and medium-high energy. He will run and play outside for as long as you’re willing to allow him to, but he doesn’t demand exercise. He follows his owner and loves to cuddle and have his tummy rubbed. He plays fetch and tug and likes balls, footballs, bones, and rubber chew toys. Scooby lived inside and slept on a dog bed next to his owners’ bed. He ate dry Eukanuba food. He is housetrained and never has accidents. He’s well-behaved when home alone. He hasn’t been crated. He knows sit, down, stay, wait, and stop. He went for slow walks and played off-leash at the park and dog park. He doesn’t pull on his leash. Off the leash, he wanders but comes when called. He potties on grass and dirt. INTAKE Scooby had a loose wiggly body and wagging tail while we pet, scanned (negative), and switched his leashes. His owner collared him as a precaution. He took treats very gently.
05/30/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: As soon as I walked into the area in which Scooby is kenneled I knew I recognized his handsome face. Sure enough, he was with us back in February 2014, returned to his owner, and now joins us again as his people are having a new baby. He’s as stunning and fun loving as he was then, anxious to go out and go potty and then having a blast playing with toys and a ball. His expressive face meets mine, his tail wags as I give him a butt scratch, and he’s able to amuse himself with a toy to shake around. We’re told that Scooby plays exuberantly with adults, plays relaxed and is tolerant and gentle with children, lived well with another dog and a Shih Tzu who came to visit frequently, lived with and was respectful of a cat, is housetrained, knows ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘wait’ and ‘stop’, loves to cuddle and get belly rubs. Wow, that’s some amazing resume! This handsome redhead has great playful energy, will need a bit of leash training, and is ready to roll over for a belly rub. His impressive credentials speak to a lovely, fun, energetic family dog and he’s looking for a new family to love. His gorgeous face smiles, his tail wags, his ears tune into everything going on around him – smart and loving….he’s hoping you’ll stop by today.
