About *DARLING

Notes From Shelter Volunteers:This petite pittie, Darling, needs some extra time and love. She is not totally comfortable with affection until she trusts you are friendly. She needs to trust you and time will give her that confidence. She gave me a hug today once she trusted me. She is interested in high value treats only! She is pretty independent since she has lived her life that way. She will need time to grow into her shell but I know she will bring love and happiness to her new home.Darling is a very timid girl with new people. Will bark/snap at people who scare her. She needs time to get to know you and trust you. She came in with her puppy who was adopted. Once she is comfortable, she is a loving girl who wants to be by your side. LOVES treats.03/29/21 18:24Reason animal needs rescue: skin infection on ventral abdomen and at perivulvar region.Type: MedicalImpound type: StrayKVuong03/29/21 18:34Extracted 2 incisors.KVuong

Hello! My name is Blitz.I am a big, sweet boy, who is need of a strong leader. I am a dopey boy who takes direction well when given properly. The humans here use positive reinforcement and it has been working for me. I have become much better about my bad habits and do not have many left, excpet for greeting you with jumps. This behavior is easily corrected and I learn through consistency. There are a few toys that are my favorite and I LOVE to play with them! I CAN NOT go home with other animals. I must be the only pet. If you are looking for a big and sweet boy like me, please email my friends @ sjadopt@sanjoseca.gov ; I am accepting appointments on a `first available, first serve` basis.When you email please include my ID # A1196166 your name, phone number, and date(s) and time(s) you`re available to visit me.-Blitz02/09/21 13:46Reason animal needs rescue: bit staff member Date off Quarantine: date removed Type: BehaviorDate animal needs rescue by: date removed *AVegaImpound type: StrayAdditional notes: While ACA was placing dog back in kennel, dog was very hyper and active and started being mouthy on arm.

Notes from Shelter Volunteer:Champ is really sweet. I was able to bear hug him and he did great - he wasn`t tense. He has been pretty mellow. Walks well on the leash, non-reactive to dogs in the yard. When he doesn`t know you at first, he will not cooperate with you in returning him back to his kennel. But once he knows you, I`ve had no issues.Champ is a well behaved pitty boy. Fully of love, walks well on the leash, does his best to hold his potty. He deserves a good loving home.03/10/21 15:08Reason animal needs rescue: Unable to complete full handling Type: BehaviorDate animal needs rescue by: (date removed)Impound type: StrayAdditional notes: When in kennel, avoids looking at handler and runs into the back of the kennel.

Shelter Volunteer Notes:Cujo is potty trained. Tends to get hot so he will drink a ton of water. He doesn`t like cats. He`s non-reactive to other dogs. He likes to explore when in the yard. Does well on a leash. Since he`s an older dog, there are times when he can be set in his ways (such as not wanting to play). He will do better in a house without small kids that may play rough or antagonize him.Cujo will pull when walking to smell or mark, likes to mark a lot. Will fetch ball but doesn`t like to give it up. Will randomly bark / is vocal.Cujo is a vocal boy. He likes to talk. He needs regular potty breaks but does his best to hold it until he is outside. He is a lower energy boy. He has spurts of energy then likes to chill. Is easy to correct the barking when you aknowledge he is talking, just wants to be heard.
