GONE – 06/13/16
Please slow down and read, very carefully, the sad saga of how BLUE came to appear on tonight’s At-Risk List, because it’s a story of good intentions gone bad. The person Blue is missing the most, found him tied up outside of a pet store and took him home, according to those notes. Blue comes across as a dog who was probably very loyal to the person who brought him home, but the rest of the family may not have been as welcoming of him; there is talk of Blue being kept in a bedroom, for example, and as if he were not socialized as well as he maybe should have been. Blue’s presence in the home seems to have been linked to one, specific person being healthy and able to care for him…..and when that was no longer the case, Blue wound up at the ACC. This loyal young boy earned a New Hope rating from the ACC and tomorrow, while he frantically looks for the one face that means the world to him, the ACC will cause him to leave this world forever. That sad ending can only be averted if a New Hope rescue is able to save Blue for a responsible, trustworthy foster/adopter, tonight!

It was reported by the owner Blue has a previous bite history; he bit 2 people a month ago. One incident occurred when the owner mother was opening the closet where Blue food is located; he jumped up and bit the mother on her bicep and forearm. He released right away and left several punctures. Another incident occurred when a visitor came to the house, and Blue managed to escape out of the son bedroom. Blue lunged at the visitor and left a red mark but no punctures, Blue then coward his body and retreated to the son as his name was called. At intake it was reported Blue maintain a loose body posture, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Blue came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was social towards the assessor but also distracted with sound from outside. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Blue was easily aroused, growls and mouths the leash and quickly de-escalates during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Blue was easy to handle when engaged with the item. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 3. Dog gets easily aroused, mouths the leash, growls and quickly de-esculates. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog is soft in body and eye, and moves his legs/body so that the Assessor is unable to hold the paw. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all.
