*HALF OFF ADOPTION FEE FOR ST PITTIES DAY THIS SATURDAY 3/17 ! *
Bandit is a very sweet and friendly dog. She was surrendered to the shelter for not getting along with the other dog in the home. Owners wrote that they had her since a puppy, she is friendly with children of all ages including babies and will play with kids, granted she may knock the really small ones over. She will bark when people come to the door, she is not destructive in the house, and will chase cats but mostly just wants to play with them.
*Shelter Notes* "Bandit (A057474) is a 10 year old spayed female mixed breed dog weighing 60 lbs. Bandit found herself being driven away from home in an Animal Services truck when her mom felt no longer able to care for her.
Bandit has lived life as an indoor dog until just a couple of months ago, when she was relegated to the backyard due to the owner's husband's health condition. Bandit is house trained and grew up with kids from babies on up in age and was described as "friendly and playful" with kids. The owner said Bandit gets along with dogs and cats, although she chased the cats playfully sometimes. She lived with another large dog, a small dog, and 6 cats.
Bandit's mom called Animal Services to pick her up because just in the last year, Bandit and her sister who she has lived with all her life were starting to get into scuffles that Bandit mostly initiated. Some were over food but others the owner wasn't sure what the trigger was. There were no injuries to either dog but her mom is older and had fallen down a couple of times intervening in the scuffles, so she felt she could no longer handle them.
According to Bandit's mom, "We have a third dog, named Panda, who is a Shih Tzu, and Bandit has no problems with him or any other dog she meets. It's just Raider that she has a problem with. Bandit has always been an inside dog. She is potty trained, very friendly, good with people of all ages (she has lived with all ages of people) including children, but she gets excited around children and some times knocks them down. Bandit is only scared of loud noises. She doesn't escape the yard, isn't aggressive with anything (except Raider) and will chase cats but doesn't hurt them. I have six cats and they all get along with Bandit."
Here at the shelter, Bandit is scared and constantly appears to be owner searching. It is heartbreaking. She is easy to handle and is starting to take treats from us, but is constantly looking for her mom- checking every car she passes, wanting to leave the fenced yard to search.
We introduced Bandit to a younger male large dog today who was pretty pushy, and she wasn't very interested, but tolerant of him."
