Location: Fishers, IN
Weight: 106 lbs
Age: 8 yrs
Good with Men: Yes
Good with Women: Yes
Good with Dogs: Yes when dog tested at shelter (see video link in attachment
Good with Cats: Unknown; His cat test was a bit inconclusive. While the cat was in the cage, he was fine. When the cat swatted him he backed away. But when the cat was out of the cage he did bark.
Children: He lived with an 11 year old and did well (would place the child around 3 years old when they purchased him)
House Trained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes
Medical Issues: healthy; could drop a few pounds
Heartworm test: Characteristics: Bullet was surrendered due to divorce. He had no known noted behavior issues in the home and was said to be crate trained and housebroken. Bullet lived with an 11 year old child who was three when Bullet came to them but has never lived with other dogs or cats. Upon intake, he was scared and reactive but after a few days he really came around and has been wonderful with handling. All staff and volunteers are able to get him in and out of his kennel without issue. The video I sent of him jumping on my lap for kisses was our first meeting (see video link in attachments below). He really is a joy, but he failed the resource portions of our temperament test as he does appreciate having his paws squeezed nor his food/toys taken. I think he would be wonderful in a rottie-savvy home. He is 8 years old and deserves a wonderful forever home for his last years.
Notes from evaluator: . I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS DOG!
He is a gentle giant – calm demeanor while I was there with 4 other folks (3 women and 1 man) from the Shelter and very loving. He moved from person to person, peeing occasionally, staying on his feet unless asked to sit and when he sat on Stan who was sitting on the ground. He seems healthy and strong, teeth looked good from what I could see (they cautioned me not to peel up his lip to look). Did not test him with treats or toys – we were outside the whole time so no toys available (I forgot to request some).My overall opinion is he’s calm and friendly, and loves to snuggle. He barked once when someone walked a dog nearby; when he walked past another dog, separated by a fence he hardly paid attention and remained calm. I hope that he can be placed in foster care asap to get him out of the shelter environment to avoid possible depression from losing his home and family. He’s only lived with his people which included one child, age 11, so it’s unknown how he’d do in a multiple pet household.
