01/12/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/12/16 17:40 Basic information Tyson A1062792 is an approx. 2 year old APBT. He is being surrendered because of a new baby on the way. He was given to the owner as a gift from a friend. His last vet visit was in 2015 and he has no known health issues. Socialization Tyson is very friendly and outgoing with strangers. He is very energetic and loves to play. He lived in a home with the owner’s 3 year old nephew and Tyson played gently and exuberantly with him. He also lived in a home with a small Chihuahua and they got along great together. He has not been around other cats and he is not bothered by them when he sees them on his walks. He has not bitten anyone or any other animal. Behavior Tyson is rarely walked. The owner works long hours and is unable to walk him as much as he should. Tyson uses wee wee pads in the home. He is not bothered by fireworks or thunderstorms. He is not bothered when his food bowl, toys or treats are taken away from him. He loves baths and brushing. The owner says that he does not get bathed as often in the winter because of the cold weather. He is friendly when someone unfamiliar approaches the owner or family members.He has been acting strange towards the owner’s wife since she became pregnant. He low growls at times but does not snap or bark. She is unsure of this behavior and thinks it may be because of the pregnancy or because he is unaltered. For a new family to know Tyson is described as friendly, affectionate, and very playful. He has a very high activity level. He loves to follow the owner around the home and seeks attention all the time. He loves to play with the owner but entertains himself. He loves to play with rawhides and squeaky toys. He has been mostly kept indoors. He is crate trained and sleeps in his crate with his bed. He was fed Pedigree dry and wet food. He knows how to sit, stay, come, and down in Spanish. He pulls hard on the leash but loves to go on brisk walks and jogging. Behavior during intake Tyson was very friendly and jumped up and down when approached. He allowed to be scanned (-) and collared but licked our hands when we got near his face. He sat down and took treats. He had a loose wiggly body, open mouth, and wagging tail throughout the whole intake process. He was then walked and transferred into a kennel.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tennyson is reported to be friendly and outgoing with strangers, energetic and playful. He lived with a 3-year-old and played gently and exuberantly with him. He also lived with a small Chihuahua without any reported issues. He is unreactive to cats when he sees them on walks. His previous owners note that Tennyson was rarely walked, and used wee wee pads in the home. He has shown no food or resource guarding behavior in the home. He is described as “friendly, affectionate, and very playful” with a very high activity level. At intake Tyson was social and affectionate with the Admissions Counselors. He walked to his kennel without incident. He resisted restraint in medical but was not otherwise difficult to handle. Unfortunately, Tyson does not seem to be acclimating well to the shelter environment and has become extremely difficult to manage on-leash. When taken out for his behavior assessment, Tennyson began biting at the leash, standing on his back legs to continue biting the leash when it was raised up and jumping high, nearly face-level with the assessor. In the behavior room he was successfully collared for the assessment, but as soon as the collar clicked he again began biting at the leash and would not calm down. While rolling Tennyson scratched the assessor on both arms. The scratches did not break skin. But due to his reaction to being collared and walked on leash, the assessment was ended and Tennyson returned to his kennel. The behavior seen in the care center is quite different from that reported by the previous owners. We cannot be certain whether his behavior when being leashed is related to his limited on-leash walks in his previous home, or whether this change in behavior is the result of environmental stress. However, due to our inability to fully assess his behavior in the current environment, we are recommending placement with a New Hope partner who can move him into a stable home environment and re-evaluate behavior at that time.
