Just recovered from a URI. Vaccinated. Behavior Observation: (5/13) Attempted dog meet with Oreo but began snapping immediately upon introduction. (5/12) Volunteer Day Trip -- Agent S is a very good boy! On our day trip, we went for long walks, ran a bit, shared snacks and enjoyed a beautiful view of the Ben Franklin bridge. I was amazed by how well he does in the car - he mostly just sat and looked out the window and at the end of our date he took a nap (not even once he tried to hop on the front sit!). Quite the sight to see! I noticed that although an independent guy, he does come when called and enjoy pets, head and back scratches as well as some cuddles! He was very polite of people passing by, didn't bark nor was reactive. He was also very, very interested in other dogs and wanted to say hi very badly. He does need to work on his leash manners as he's a very strong guy, but I bet that if he gets regular exercise it'll get better naturally. Agent S would be a great buddy for someone active, who enjoys running and being active/outside. He seems to be quite an adventurous guy and would probably love going on hikes where he gets to explore and sniff all of the smells too! He was also not very food motivated but did take treats very gently. (4/21) Per Staff -- Easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Pulls through shelter and out to yard. In yard, initially fairly aloof as he runs laps around perimeter. Does return to handler after urinating and defecating and accepts pets from back of neck to flank with loose body. Easily distracted by passing vehicles does not pay much attention to handler but continues to accept pets with loose body language when handler approaches. Easily returned to kennel and leash easily removed. (4/19) Dog Meet --Attempted dog meet with Sheila through fence. Agent S was very aroused, vocalizing, muzzle punching the fence. When met Sheila on leash, attempted to snap before able to introduce. Took in separate yard and continued to fixate on Sheila from across the parking lot. Still allowed handling and did not tense up. No interest in toys or treats. Pulled heavily through parking lot and into shelter. Placed back in kennel and leash removed without issue. (4/19) Per Staff -- Agent S was easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Still bows when leash is presented but easily looped. Once on leash, pulls through shelter and outside until in yard. In yard, runs laps for 5 or so minutes before returning to handler. Allows handling all over with loose body. Chases a rope toy but does not play with it once he gets to it. When handler stops petting, uses nose to nudge for more pets to flank. Pulls back to kennel but easily returned to kennel and easily unleashed. (4/18) Per Staff -- Moderately difficult to remove from kennel due to dog retreating and then coming forward again. Friendly, but conflicted. Once looped, exited easily and only pulled slightly while walking to evaluation room. Allowed handling all over although did show some signs of stress - heavy panting and some displacement sniffing. No issues returning to kennel or removing lead. (4/15) Was able to remove from kennel again on 4/15. When assessor approaches kennel, Agent S comes to front of kennel, takes treats nicely and pushes against kennel door to solicit pets, allows pets with loose body language. Leashing is easier than last time but Agent S still bows and then retreats before coming forward again and bowing. Is able to be leashed with no snapping at leash and readily leaves kennel. He pulled strongly through shelter and parking lot into yard. In yard, Agent S is initially tense but loosens after a few minutes and allows pets over entire body with relatively loose body language. Did not show interest in toys. One member of the public did walk by the fence which caused Agent S to tense and bark. Handler was able to pick leash up with no issue. Agent S pulls through the parking lot and shelter when returning. He is easily returned to kennel and leash is easily removed. (4/14) Per Staff -- Agent S approached for treats and took them gently but would bow and then retreat to back of kennel once presented with leash. After a few attempts, Agent S became overstimulated and started nipping at leash. A very loud barking dog in the kennel next to Agent S seemed to be escalating the situation. The handlers ended the interaction and moved to the other side of the kennel, which was quieter. Agent S remained at the kennel door as the handlers attempted to leash and accepted pets and treats. The handler was able to leash Agent S and the dog immediately exited the kennel, pulling strongly through the shelter and to the outside. Agent S continue to pull through parking lot, zig zagging in front of handler until we got into a yard. Agent S' body language in yard was tense and handlers attempted some pets to flank which were accepted. Agent S was very aloof in yard, tracing perimeter repeatedly but would accept treats from handler when he passed by. Showed no real interest in toys beyond chasing a tennis ball once. When members of the public would walk by the fence, Agent S would tense and hard bark. Agent S tensed up when handler picked up leash to go back inside and pulled strongly on walk back to kennel. Agent S dodged going back into the kennel but was lured in with treats and easily unleashed. (4/12) Per Staff -- Unable to remove from kennel. Took treats with a soft mouth, ears back, tail neutral. As soon as the leash was in sight he moved to the back of the kennel and would not approach. (4/12) Per Staff -- Still unable to be removed from kennel. Dog is hard barking at front of kennel, retreats and then charges towards front of kennel, snapping at bars. Spent 8-10 minutes attempting to coax with treats and Fresh Pet but behavior continued. When attempted to leash, dog snapped repeatedly and tore leash. (4/10) Behavior -- Initially dog lunging and hard barking at approach of assessor. Ceased barking when treat was presented, but still showing teeth. Assessor dropped treat and stepped away. Approached dog for a second time, dog this time was not snapping/lunging, but was low growling and extremely stiff. Able to drop treat in kennel and stepped away for another few moments. Came back, dog was on other side of kennel, but was able to call him over and again give treat. Dog continued tense posture with low tail, but ceased offensive behavior and growling. (4/10) Upon intake, one individual surrendering the dog had to place the dog in the kennel; ACA commented that the woman who was also present at the surrender said she was "terrified" of the dog. Dog was surrendered in a muzzle that needed to be removed, after finder placed the dog in the kennel. Despite the muzzle, the dog tried to bite the leash multiple times, snapping at ACA. Was able to get the slip leash around the muzzle, and unclasp it. After, the dog seemed to calm down and all signs of aggression stopped. (4/8) Intake -- The finder's nephew was walking the dog, a neighbor approached the dog and the dog snapped and latched onto the man's pants. The man was not injured, and is totally okay. That was the only time the dog has ever tried to actually bite someone, usually it was just hard barking and growling (which he did to me in the lobby). Per finder - Aggressive towards all people, only good with one person, protective. The dog growls at children. The finders keep the child away from them.

Medical Observation: (6/16) Vet Check -- Presented for spay and mass removal. Foster had reported mass on left hind leg and vaccine site reaction initially suspected. On pre-op exam today has ~3-5mm area of slightly thickened movable subcutaneous tissue on left hindlimb where mass was reported, not able to aspirate because area is too small and no longer feels like discrete mass but rather resolving inflammation. History and recent assessment suggestive of resolving vaccine site reaction. Removal not indicated at this time, continued monitoring recommended. (5/17) Vet Check -- Young adult pup with diarrhea and some skin irritation. Per monitoring sheet D+ noted 5/16 and 5/17 and has diarrhea staining around perineum today. Also breaking with early URI signs. Suspect patient is going into heat. Behavior improving with time in shelter. (5/10) Vet Check -- Patient was laying on kuranda bed when approached, cowering on bed, whale eye, dilated pupils, trembling. Showing fearful behaviors rather than overt aggression. Will start trazodone to ease adjustment to shelter. Behavior Observation: (6/22) Per Previous Foster --Incident with other dog: Other dog is 13 pounds. Foster gave Alita a treat, the little dog came up to Alita and sniffed at the treat. Alita barked and bit at the little dog, broke open one of the pads on the small dog's foot. Reactivity with People: If you come up behind her, she may snap at you, but has never hard bitten/broken skin. She "starts going nuts" when new people come into the home. They put her in the crate, but she will still go crazy biting the bars of the cage. She seems especially reactive towards males. General Behavior: protective, aggressive to strangers, nervous, active, hyperactive, playful, good with other dogs sometimes (played with foster's dog but lunges at some others), jumps on people, barks when any new person comes into the house, aggressive (too protective/defensive), snaps at people sometimes Commands: knows sit sometimes, will sit and wait to eat until foster says ok Additional details: "She can be great but will need a lot of aggression training. She would do best in the suburbs or farm where she can roam, have not too much stimulus, etc. (5/23) Foster Care -- Bethany is a sweet, curious girl that just wants to have adventures and someone to chill with. She's highly receptive and protective, she bonded with me quickly. She will shower you with kisses! During my time with Bethany, she loved going for walks (and trying to track down squirrels) and was great on her leash and around other people when they walked by. For the most part, she was indifferent if another dog was nearby and would only bark if they started to lunge at her. During her downtime, B liked to lounge or be near me though she also liked her space every now and then too. She was patient with me working from home. She rarely barked or got worked up. While it would take a little nudging to go in, she would sleep well in her crate through the night. The only time she had an accident was when I first got her and had some diarrhea, likely due to anxiety from her situation. Otherwise she was very regular when I'd take her out on walks. She also responds to commands very well. I do feel that she would be happy with someone that is able to give her a lot of love and attention and make her feel safe & secure in her new home. A yard would be ideal as she loves to explore! Bethany would be great with someone with a fun, sensitive personality and maybe even a couple to really love on her. (5/17) very nervous, took some time to remove her from kennel. For exam cowered on floor and froze, but after exam when removed leash muzzle jumped up on handlers soliciting attention (5/17) Foster Care -- This dog was returned from foster care after attempting to bite the 4-year-old in the home (5/17) Volunteer -- I took Bethany for a Day Trip to paddleboard. She was super easy and calm in my car. Bethany explored the water and dock before climbing onto my paddleboard. She was a little timid at first, but then got the hang of balancing and started to explore the paddleboard ....walking from front to back, making me work to balance us! When she needed a cool off she hopped off the board into the water and swam around to the other side to climb back on. By the end of our paddleboard adventure she was a pro! Another volunteer and ACCT dog joined us and Bethany was calm and happy around them both. She was non-reactive to the other dog. On the ride home she slept the entire way, curled up on the seat! Bethany is a sweet and affectionate dog! (5/12) Per Staff -- Dog came into office with very loose body language and a wagging tail. Approached me right away with loose, soft body. Solicited attention, gave kisses, and would flop on the ground at my feet for pets. When I would stop petting she would nudge me for more pets and would crawl into my lap. Super sweet, wiggly, happy girl once she warms up. (5/11) Per Staff -- Fearful in kennel and refuses to leave bed. Takes chicken nuggets from bed. Able to get hand in proximity without any reaction but curls lip when leash is introduced. Trembling and tail tucked through entire interaction. After a few nuggets, she will take treat from hand but only when leash is out of sight. When leash is reintroduced, darts to back of kennel. (5/10) -- Very fearful in kennel, curled up on her bed, will take treats but will lip curl at the sight of the leash. Eventually will sniff hand and take treats if hand is close but not comfortable enough to take treats directly from my hand. Trembling, eyes dilated, tail tucked. (5/9) Showing fearfulness in the kennel. Curled up, will posture away from the handler, avoidant of being leashed, will low growl and then retreat to the other side of the kennel. show less

!!! AVAILABLE for Adoption from Foster Care !!! ARTICA - A-65737 Personality: Artica is loving, affectionate, and playful. He would love a home with another dog for a playmate or an owner who can give him lots of playtime. He still has a lot of puppy energy, but he also loves to cuddle all the time. He struggles meeting new people, and he needs to be introduced very slowly or he will get scared and growl/snap at them. He also shows the same fearful/aggressive behavior in large groups of people. He needs an owner with the patience to teach him not to be so scared! Artica does very well in his crate (although he is working on separation anxiety), and he is learning to obey commands. Any owner who invests the time in helping Artica get over his fears will be rewarded with lots of fun and affection!

Suspicious for soft tissue injury. Patient displayed concerning behavior during examination including growling after repeated attempts to mount nurse. Concerned for behavioral decline in shelter. (3/9) Initial Exam - Unable to check mouth due to behavior Behavior Observation: (4/19) Easy to leash, approached front of kennel with soft body. Moderate pulling on leash. Once outside he became frustrated that he could not go into the front parking lot and began mounting my leg. I used the fence as a tie out and was able to make some distance where he could not mount. He continued to attempt to mount for about 3 minutes until he was distracted by a smell and I was able to redirect his attention and we could start walking again. No issues returning to the building or kennel. (4/16) Initially baring teeth when kennel is approached, followed by a snap. Treat offered and snapped again, but then realizing it was a treat, stopped, and ate quickly off ground. Low growled while visiting dog in kennel nextdoor, handler turned and offered another treat. Dog's body language significantly loosened and interaction was ended. Came back to kennel some time later, and dog stood at front of kennel, slightly stiff. Was able to offer treat, then open kennel door and loop with no issue. Pulls moderately on leash while outside. Appeared nervous with excessive activity on campus and other dogs in area, so took dog to covered run. Dog stayed by gate door and scratched. Would come when called but then immediately go back to gate door. Walked nicely with minimal pulling back inside the building, and went into Evaluation Room. Sought attention from handler and allowed slow petting. Played with a stuffed toy but quickly lost interest. Easily brought back to kennel and allowed lead to be removed without issue. (4/15) Artica approaches front of kennel with a soft body and sits, easy to leash, pulls moderate on leash. Once in the play yard he paws at the gate to exit with ears back, lip licking. Outside the yard he allows handling and will solicit attention from handler with ears back, tail down, mouth closed. Easily goes back into kennel. (4/13)Per previous owner - active, sensitive, nervous, aggressive to strangers, hyperactive, great with cats, comes when calls, aggressive around toys, jumps on people, destructive-scratches/digs, snaps at people, aggressive around toys, affectionate great dog just randomly decides to "switch up and attack." (3/13) Per Vet Staff -- Very friendly initially. Growled when examining his shoulder. After repeated attempts to mount nurse, patient began growling while attempting to mount and examination was discontinued.

Behavior Observation: (5/20) Foster - In the past few days, Athena seems to have made huge strides with walking! I took a photo of her outside from this weekend. She has become a lot less nervous, no longer staying right near my leg or behind me when walking, but out in front, and has gone from pulling/lunging at every dog she sees to practically showing no response to some dogs. (4/27) Dog is in office with Aris, who she came in with. Dog is explores her surroundings but also solicits attention from staff members. Very sweet and social. Allows all over handling. (4/23) Initially avoidant of being leashed and retreats slightly, but able to be looped and cautiously lead out. Seems interested in other dogs but barking through the kennels, has her walking low and slowly with ears back. Able to be encouraged to continue walking towards outside. Kept low outside. Some lip licking. Tense during petting. Did not want to continue to walk any further than back garage so we turned around and went back inside with no issues. Able to be returned to kennel and have leash removed easily. (4/22) Per Previous Owner -- Calm, nervous, playful. the dogs are relatively well behaved with the cats as of now. Knows sit, stay, lay.
