Adopt Gotti Sweet Little Sad Boy Kids, Cats, Dogs a Tan/Yellow/Fawn Terrier
Gotti, a neutered male terrier ype mixture, tan and white, is about three years old and weighed 57lbs when he arrived as a give up on October. 9. Gotti was given distemper and bordetella vaccinations and Strongid when he arrived and was already neutered. Ask for his video! Gotti’s lifelong owner gave him up with another dog because of domestic violence issues unrelated to the dogs. On Gotti’s pet history form, the former owner noted that Gotti was house trained and stayed in the house day and night, got along good with the other dog and also lived with 4 kids ages 9, 12, 14 and 16. He was afraid of loud noises and water and “he just adores attention and affection.” Adjectives chosen to describe Gotti included friendly, shy, noisy, obedient and affectionate.Volunteers agree that Gotti seeks attention and affection. “Gotti is quiet in the kennel, happy to get his turn to go out, but stands patiently to be collared and walks quietly and calmly out of the kennel past all the barking dogs,” said an experienced volunteer. “Outside he is very easy to walk and sort of sad. He whimpers softly and seems like he would happily get in any car that would let him. He was more interested in staying close to me than playing with toys. He greeted other dogs with wagging tail and a friendly manner but was more interested in people. He greeted a total stranger with a happy lick to the face.”“Gotti is easy to walk and easy to handle,” said another volunteer. “Quiet, friendly and a little sad. He seems to be looking for his person but treats new people as friends.”Gotti was observed by shelter staff on October. 16 and did very well. He was clean in his kennel, friendly when approached, easy to obtain and easy to walk. He reacted favorably (tail wagging, calm demeanor, interested) when he was walked through the kennel past other dogs, and reacted the same way when other dogs were walked past his kennel. He also reacted favorably with a calm demeanor and a little nervous (looking to handler for reassurance) when face to face with another leashed dog and when introduced to a cat. He showed no reaction to his feet and mouth being handled, leaned in and enjoyed being touched, licking the face of the handler (lots of licks) when looked in the eyes. He calmly allowed his food to be removed and was willing to let go of a toy. The handler noted that he can sit and give paw.
