Medical Summary Spayed female–has tattoo Scan negative for the microchip–Was scared of the scanner 3 years old according to the owner Eyes are clear Nose= No discharge Ears are clean Teeth are intact and mildly stainned with tarter Coat is clean Dewormed with Pyrantel Flea Treatment= Activyl As of now no signs of CIRDC As of now no V/S/C/D NOSF Came out of the cage without a problem but became nervous during the initial. Once she warmed up she allowed petting and jumped up
Isys was surrendered to the care center. She is noted to be shy with strangers, but to warm up quickly. She has interacted with children (newborn through 11 years old) and is noted to play exuberantly with children and adults. She is also playful with small dogs.
She was a bit timid at intake, but warmed up with treats and began approaching the counselor. She was a bit nervous during her initial medical examination, but allowed all handling. During her SAFER relief walk, Isys pulled a bit on the leash and flinched with quick movements. She allowed all handling items but was a bit tense and cautious between items. She did not engage with the toy. Off-leash with other dogs of her size, Isys avoids interaction and moves away from the helper dogs.
Isys is a timid dog, though she is food-motivated. We recommend an experienced adopter for Isys, who will allow her to warm up to her new home and new family at her own pace, and who will help build her confidence with positive experiences. We also recommend only reward-based training for Isys with lots of treats.
