|A2011897||Monday, 21 December, 2020||I have not experienced the aggressive behaviors previously noted for Rambo, but by knowing this information, I took every precaution possible. He was very timid as I approached his run and would not come to me. After some time, I was able to carefully leash him and take him out with no issues. He moved slowly and calmly while outside. Utilizing the "leash hook"? seems to be the best option for removing the leash safely. This interaction did not include any teeth baring, snapping or growling.||Monday, 21 December, 2020 4:15PM||Behavior|
|A2011897||Monday, 21 December, 2020||HE SEEMED FINE IN THE PEN. HE HAD LOOSE BODY LANGUAGE AND SMELLED SOME OF THE OTHERS THROUGH THE FENCE, BUT I HAD SOME ROUGH/ROWDY DOGS IN THE YARD AND I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO OVERWHELM RAMBO. I SENT HIM FOR A WALK AND WILL TRY HIM AGAIN.

|A2011897||Saturday, 02 January, 2021||THIS ANIMAL HAS BEEN APPROVED FOR SAME DAY SURGERY PICK UP.
ADOPTER IS AWARE THAT THIS ANIMAL WILL/MAY HAVE RESIDUAL SIDE EFFECTS FROM ANESTHESIA. THIS INCLUDES (BUT NOT LIMITED TO) DILATED/CONSTRICTED PUPILS, UNSTEADY WALK, AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR, & POSSIBLE VOMITING. ADOPTER WILL MONITOR THEIR ANIMAL THROUGHOUT THIS PERIOD. ALL FURTHER TREATMENTS/EXPENSES THAT MAY ARISE THROUGHOUT THIS RECOVERY PERIOD ARE THE RESPONSIBILTY OF THE ADOPTER AT THEIR OWN VET. BCAC WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE. ADOPTER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT BCAC DOES NOT OFFER AFTER HOURS CARE.
Post-Surgical Care Instructions
Anesthesia can cause nausea and vomiting, we suggest that you only offer your pet ½ of his or her normal meal size post-surgery. Normal feeding should continue the following day.
Keep your pet calm. Patients' recovering from surgery should have limited exercise. No running, jumping, bathing, climbing on furniture, playing with other pets or with humans, or other strenuous activities for 10-14 days. Remember to keep your pet indoors, it is crucial to avoid possible infection. Allow your animal short leash walks only to eliminate.
Check the incision site daily for swelling, redness or discharge. Any swelling should be minimal and resolve within 48 hours. A small amount of yellow-orange discharge is normal the first 48 hours. If there is yellow-green discharge, excessive swelling or bruising, or a large amount of blood, please seek veterinary care immediately. Do not allow your pet to lick his or her incision site. If an E-collar was provided it must stay on pet at all times for 10 days. Failure to do so may result in infection, dehiscence (opening of surgical site) and the need for further surgical attention. If sutures are present on incision, they are due to be removed 10 days after surgery.

|A2011897||Thursday, 28 January, 2021||Meet Mambo (A2011897)
Our Akita mix 'Mambo' (A2011897) is looking for his Fur-Ever home! Mambo is 12 yrs. young and weighs 39 lbs. Upon receiving Mambo from an owner surrender situation, the kennel staff have been dealing with his aggressively reactive behavior inside AND outside of his kennel. If the kennel staff member is successful at leashing Mambo for a walk, Mambo will keep showing aggression during the walk by growling, showing teeth, and charging at you if the kennel staff member attempts to pet, talk, or even look directly at Mambo according to staff. Mambo will also consistently try to bite or re-direct on you if you attempt to un-leash or leash him. The previous owner stated that Mambo is reactive to other dogs as that piece of information was confirmed at the shelter as Mambo would bark in every direction where a dog is located. As you may have guessed, with the right environment, and TLC form a responsible owner, Mambo may find the peace that he is looking for and become a loving dog that he may have once been before! The shelter is no place for a senior dog so please help Mambo find a good home soon as he is ready to make a change. Will you be the one to change his life Fur-ever???

Mambo enjoys his space and does not like being touched. He takes treats nicely from your hand and walks nice and slow on the leash. In his run, he is very quite and clean. Most of the time he lays in his bed and relaxes. He would be an excellent companion for someone looking for a simple, low maintenance dog to keep them company.
