Wendy is a 7 year old unaltered daushund/pit mix. She was given as a gift when she was a puppy and has been in one home her whole life. She has a severe ear problem that the owner can longer afford to pay for and is the cause of her being surrendered. She has been to multiple vets in the last 6 months and her condition has not improved.
Social Life and Personality:
Wendy has lived with children and she is relaxed and very tolerant of them. She is exuberant during play with kids but is gentle with them. She has not been around other dogs or cats. She is very house trained and does not have any accidents inside the home. She has a medium activity level. The owner describes her as playful, confident, affectionate, and friendly.
Wendy is not bothered when people remove her food or bones. She thinks you are playing if you take away a toy. She enjoys baths, being brushed, being held, d when strangers come to her home or approach her teacher.
For a New Family to Know:
Wendy knows how to sit and down. She is used to leashed walks and playing in her yard at least 3 times a day. She loves to play with balls and squeaky toys but she will tear apart the squeaky toys. She likes to play fetch. She is well behaved when home alone or when playing in the yard. She is not bothered by loud noises. She eats Purina dry food once a day. Her favorite treats are beef jerky. She likes to sleep in her pen or by her owner’s bed.
Wendy solicited attention by whining and jumping up. She cuddled up to the counselor when pet and she only moved when the petting stopped. She remained calm with a loose body and wagging tail throughout the intake.
SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Wendy came to us as an owner surrender on 4/25/15. The owner reported that Wendy has lived with children and plays gently with them. Upon intake was soliciting attention, and allowed all handling. When entering the behavior room Wendy was very interest in interacting with the assessor. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining very soft body language. She showed no interest in the food, and only displayed minimal interest in the rawhide and toy items. The behavior department believes that Wendy can go to an average home.
