Peppa

Hello, my name is Peppa. My animal id is #32719. I am a desexed female black dog at the . The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 6 months 2 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 29-Jun-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving - no pets allowed.

Reserved

Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Peppa is at risk for medical reasons. She was diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex. We feel that she would do best outside of the care center environment. Peppa would be suitable for most homes as a single dog.

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A staff member writes: Peppa Pig as I affectionately call her always stares up at me lovingly when I come visit her with that little "twinkle" in her eye. Whenever I take her outside to enjoy some free time, she always leans in to me and loves getting back and butt scratches. The "twinkle" she has in her eye warms her heart and she never lets it impede her as she always runs around excitedly, jumping up on me. She always takes treats softly from him and knows how to sit! She LOVES toys and this little Peppa Pig bounces around the pen after them. Come visit Peppa at BACC and let her into your heart and become the twinkle of your eye!

Basic Information:: Peppa is a 1 and a half year old, medium mixed breed female who was not spayed prior to coming into the shelter. She has not seen a vet recently and was surrendered due to the owner moving to a location that does not allow pets. She has been in her home for the last year.

For a New Family to Know: Peppa is described as being friendly, affectionate and playful. She has been mainly an indoor dog, likes to follow her owner around when he is home, and likes to play with all kinds of toys. She likes to play fetch and chase. Peppa sleeps anywhere in the home, eats dry food, and is house trained to go outside on any surface. She is well behaved when left alone in the house and has been crate trained, but does not like being in there. She listens to the commands sit and walks on leash for exercise. Peppa's owner will let her off leash at the beach and she will wander but comes back.

Summary:: Peppa was wiggly and friendly. She allowed all handling during her assessment. Peppa was social though a bit shy, but showed no interest in the toy item.

Summary (1):: Peppa's previous owner reported that she has interacted with dogs on the street when being walked, pulling to reach them and is always friendly and playful with them. Here at the Care Centers, Peppa is uncomfortable around novel dogs. She actively keeps her distance from the other dogs and freezes when they approach her. While we cannot be certain if this behavior is due to the emotionally charged or stressful environment, the Behavior Department recommends that Peppa be the only dog until she is given adequate time to decompress before being introduced to novel dogs. All introductions should be done slowly and under supervision. 7/2: When off leash at the Care Center, Peppa avoids greeting the novel male dog. She looks towards him but quickly moves away and keeps her distance throughout the session. 7/7: Peppa continued to be uncomfortable around novel male dogs. She lip curled when he approached him then moved away. She spent most of her session seeking the handlers attention. When the greeter checks in with her, she freezes with her head hung low.

Date of intake:: 7/29/2018

Summary:: Friendly, loose bodied

Date of initial:: 7/29/2018

Summary:: Friendly, active

ENERGY LEVEL:: Peppa displays a very high activity level in the care center.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)

Behavior Asilomar: H - Healthy

Recommendations:: Single-pet home,Recommend no dog parks

Recommendations comments:: Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the behaviors that Peppa has shown during playgroup (see GROUPBEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Peppa should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog until she is given time to decompress. The Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized in a more controlled setting until her behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Peppa associate dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats.
