Hello! My name is Data
found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
Other Pets at Shelter...
Data is an umbrella cockatoo believed to be about 10 years old. Data has had many homes. We have listed Data as appropriate for a home without children because he is both very cuddly and prone to bite. It can be very startling when he goes from snuggling into your chest to nipping at you and he does not avoid the face. He has not done anything more than nip so he clearly is not attempting to hurt the person holding him. Adopter needs to have large cockatoo experience and not be easily intimidated.
Data's last home tried very hard to make the adoption work but ultimately had to give him up because he is very loud and demands attention when he knows people are in the house. He is not a good pet for someone living in an apartment.
Data is easily startled by other birds flying. He also will not stay put on a cage. He damages his feathers a bit but it is mostly unnoticeable. He would be OK in a bird room with other birds as long as they don't fly around a lot. He says "Hi Data" fairly frequently.
Data could made someone a wonderful best friend. He has a lot of promise and probably just needs some stability in his life
