PEBBLES – A1101269 4Y BLACK DSH F
OWNER SURRENDER: 1/09/2017
Pebbles is shy around strangers at first but after a few minutes will approach and either sniff and walk away or will hiss at them. She will swat at them if they try and pet right away. She has never spent time around children so it’s unknown how she would react but plays exuberantly with adults. She has never spent time around cats but has seen dogs at the vet and will hiss and swat from inside the carrier. Pebbles has bitten and scratched her owner but not in the last 10 days.
In the car, Pebbles would be relaxed and her owner would scratch her chin, up until a year ago when Pebbles started to become aggressive. She isn’t bothered by baths and when the vet clips her nails, will swat at them. She does enjoy being brushed and when she’s done she’ll let you know by getting up and walking away. She will struggle, hiss, and swat when her owner puts her into the carrier. Pebbles has never been awoken from her slumber so it’s unknown how she would react.
Pebble’s owner describes her as affectionate, assertive, and independent. She will come up and let you know when she wants attention and affection. She has a low activity level and usually hangs out in the same room as her owner. She used to play with stuffed and catnip toys but has lost appeal in them over the last few months. She’s kept indoors only and used to sleep in her owner’s bed with her until she started to become aggressive, now she sleeps on the couch cushions. She eats 1/2 a can of Wellness Beef and Chicken and a handful of Friskies dry food, twice a day and enjoys catnip treat. She only goes potty in her covered litterbox full of pellet litter. Pebbles will scratch on furniture but has never been given a scratching post.
Counselor did not handle due to nature of intake.
