Beta Ray's story
!!! ONLY Available to Love Local Partners with ACCT Philly !!!
BETA RAY - A40346939
Intake Type: Stray
Medical Observation:
(12/11) Hair loss all over, poss FAD, cannot check teeth due to behavior.
(12/15) During walk through dog had diarrhea placing a monitor sign and giving drontal.
Behavior Observation:
(12/11 management) Dog is pancaked and trembling at front of kennels. Completely frozen, but begins to low growl as assessor approaches.
(12/12 volunteer) I noticed that he's "staff only" and on the portal under "concerning behavior" but he warmed up quickly with chicken nuggets. I think he's just nervous in his kennel.
(12/29 staff) Behavior update: Beta Ray was loose in kennel and easy to leash. In yard he immediately began sniffing and perimeter tracing, and a few times sought exit from yard. It was very hard to break focus throughout and he was not easily lured with treats or toys. The treats he did take, he took very gently. He did break focus/become excited at sight of other dogs and seemed loose and appropriate with dogs through fence. He allowed some handling (pets, rubs), but rarely sought it. He occasionally would jump up at us with a burst of energy -- this seemed frantic and conflicted. He generally remained inhibited, however, and did not tip over into total over-arousal. We nearly collided with another dog when coming back into the kennel and he redirected focus very well and remained very easy to handle and unleash in the kennel. All in all, still nervous, but some improvement.
