04/09/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Oliver is an endearing puppy, only seven months of age. He is petite, gorgeous, smartly dressed but comes with a twist…Oliver suffers from a neurological disorder and seizures, the very reason why he was surrendered to us by his family who seems to have taken quite good care of him. He is restless and circles the yard aimlessly. He sees but his eyes are looking into a place we cannot see. He is aware of other dogs present in the adjacent pen and briefly stops in his course. He does his business at once as we exit his kennel telling me that at least, at this young age, he is partially house trained. He twirls on the leash, sometimes mouthing it. Oliver knows I am with him, though. When I coo or make squeaky sounds, he seems to understand that it is playtime and starts to run and jump…I can stop him in his course, hold him semi tight in my arms and give him the love any youngster should get. Oliver is still then and accepts my caresses. Little Oliver needs the help of a Neurologist to figure out what might be bothering him and find the best regimen for his seizures that we are already treating here at the care center. He will need you very soon to make that important step possible. Oliver is at the Manhattan Care Center, waiting for you…
04/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 4/7/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/9/17 Summary: Due his current medical condition/health status, Oliver is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. The behavior department believes Oliver would benefit best from placement with a New Hope Rescue who can meet his needs medically and then assess behavior once he is in a stable environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Oliver to new and unfamiliar situations. In the care center, Oliver has allowed all handling and seeks out attention. He appears to be a social puppy. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/7/17 During his initial medical exam, Oliver allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Oliver so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to medical concerns that make Oliver unable to have a full behavior assessment, he should be placed with a New Hope partner. He appears to be a sweet, social puppy.
