Adoption event report☆at GREENDOG on 20th Nov. (Sun)

We had an adoption event at GREENDOG in Kobe Southern Mall on 20th of Nov. (Sun).
We did not know that it was a Kobe marathon day until we drove on the Hanshin Highway!
Maybe because of traffic control due to the marathon, we did not have many visitors and had a relaxing time with our dogs.
The mall itself seemed like quieter than usual.

Cicero Male 9 years old
He seemed a bit nervous being in a new environment.
But he was interested in the people he met for the first time. When visitors rubbed his cute butt, he stepped happily and shook his rear end.
He did not wear a manner belt, but never peed inside of the shop. You can live with him inside of the house without problem.

Promise Female 6 years old
Promise was good at walking in a housing area with busy traffic. But she froze once she was in the shop.
It seemed she got confused with the new experience. But once she got used to the atmosphere of the shop, she could relax and got her pace.
One family liked Promise and visited ARK later to have an interview for adoption.
Their garden fences are a bit low for Promise. The family will have her after the construction is over to make the fences higher.
Congrats, Promise!
Adoption event worked for you!

Riko Female 5 years old
She is famous as a super hyper girl at ARK. But she totally changed her behavior that day during the event.
She was calm at walking, never too excited during the event, she did not care when other dogs got her toys. She kept the distance from a small dog that was scared and barked at her, she played with dogs who wanted to play with her and was gentle with a human baby.
We can recommend her to any kind of family.
At ARK, she tends to get exited when she finds a cat. But she did not bark to a kitten, Andi, at the event. She seemed interested in the kitten, but took her eyes off it.
We see many dogs who react to the cats outside but not to the cats they live with.
We really thought “great to take her to the event”.

Guiness Male 2 years old
Guinness is so energetic that he is stressed out at ARK.
He bit his kennel and broke it, and he tore up his blanket due to stress.
We have to understand he is still a 2 year old boy and his bad behavior might be due to fear and stress.
Guinness is very popular among volunteers and staff members.
He has such a wonderful body with big ears, big eyes, and long legs. He is good-looking, expressive, uses body language a lot and loves people. He is also spoiled but a bit timid. He makes us feel like “I should be by his side” as he jokes around with other dogs and cannot let the ones he does not like go.
Too many compliments?
Because we all love Guinness!

He was perfect with toilet too♪

Sanbi Female 4months old
She was car sick and barely moved when we got to the shop. But she recovered quickly and played a lot, ran a lot and completely relaxed.
We thought she would be tired as she played so much from the beginning. But she never gotten tired much to everyone’s surprise.

It is really important that a puppy sees and copies what older dogs do. In order to develop social skills, a puppy needs to see other dogs and communicate with them.
She finally got tired 30 minutes before the adoption event ended.
You did great, Sanbi!

We were worried that Guinness might hide himself if a lot of visitors came. But he was relaxed until the end.
Riko, Guinness and Sanbi enjoyed playing together.
Ciselo was confused when someone asked to play with her, probably she was nervous.
Promise watched other dogs playing with visitors.

Andi Female 2months old
Andi is curious and friendly. Visitors played with her and she was in a good mood throughout the event.

She doesn’t like to be held, so she was a bit fussy when being held. But she has never been frozen or tried to escape as if she just wants to be free.
She is so spoiled that she tries to lick people like a dog. She likes sleeping with people.
She is strong minded and playful, but still a kitty. She got tired and fell asleep in the end.
Finally there is room for her in ARK’s kitten house. She will wait for her future family there.

Thanks to all the visitors who came to buy next year’s calendar, and who visited and donated after shopping or trimming.
It is important to have these events so more people can learn about ARK.

We will have fewer visitors during snow season. To compensate for it, we have to use the opportunity to have adoption events effectively!
