He also auto sits. He performs place on command. The perspective adopter would need to have no other animals, as Agent need lots of work in coping skills with other dogs. He is still very reactive with other dogs. We're hoping for a committed adopter to see this great dog thru to the end! (7/13) Trainer hired by foster -- When Agent S first saw the trainer during their first session, he "didn't want anything to do with him." Agent S was growling with his head down and eyes up. Trainer thought if he had put more spatial pressure on him, he may have bit him. Trainer talked with the foster for a while and eventually started parallel walking. Trainer had Lou pass the leash over and started doing heel drills (directional changes) with Agent S. Trainer said Agent S decided to start following him and it went pretty well after that. He had no interest in food, so the best thing trainer said he could do was take the leash and lead him. He said Agent S does seems to work for the bond, and that he wants to build off that. Foster and Agent S came a week later, and they were able to get him to do some automatic sits. Now they are able to walk up to an intersection and sit and wait patiently. Early on especially, they weren't pushing the limits as far as reactivity and triggers. Last session, they did have one of trainer's resident dogs outside, where Agent S could see him through a barrier. They had Agent S on the other side of the yard doing heel exercises and attempting to work along BAT protocol. However, Agent S would go over threshold very quickly. (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. BITE INCIDENT: (6/25) When introducing to the adopter, the foster drove from NJ to West Philly. Agent S started to get stressed in the car and threw up. Adopter was waiting outside, and they tried very slowly introducing Agent S to the area. Adopter's house is a very confined space. After a while, they took Agent S into the house. He was still with foster. Adopter went to give Agent S a cookie. Agent S wagged his tail, took the cookie, and then Agent S quickly growled and clamped on Adopter's fingers. Foster grabbed Agent S by the back of his collar and Agent S let go. After that he was not fixated on adopter and did not go for adopter again. Foster quickly walked him to the other room, where he was more subdued. The bite drew blood and adopter sought medical care. Adopter says he's fine now and the fosters have had a nice correspondence with him, in which he seemed very understanding. Since being brought home, Agent S has shown no different behavior than he normally would. This animal is currently available from foster care through ACCT Philly's Adoptions Programs.

!!! 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! Foster's contact information: mattj.92@gmail.com Dog Meets: Artica and Mellow: https://youtu.be/upJJZ2qezY4 Artica and Mellow 2: https://youtu.be/ZNWQqeEJEso Artica and Mellow 3: https://youtu.be/3qKEcPQgfE8 Artica and Ace 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-aLNjbtN_0 Artica and Ace 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRtamGMDzns Tahsha and Artica: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xtbsihh-SB4 Artica and Deku: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQYndZNx1V8 Intake Type: (4/13) Return Adoption after 5 weeks -- Reactive Behavior Weight: 43 lbs Medical Observation: (3/13) Vet Check -- Patient appears to have a painful right shoulder. 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.

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.
