A2113545Wednesday, 23 December, 2020Ace continues to exhibit negative behavior. He steadily low growls whenever anyone enters the holding the area. Once in front of the cage, if you make movements (example: flipping the card around to read for example, he curls his lip, bares all his teeth and growl louder.) Staff have to move him via ketch pole for safety reasons from one cage to the next till he is able to be moved into Isolation area. His body language is a warning sign not to interact with him and in my opinion is not fear based, it is assertive warning. I Feser 12/23/20 09:35Wednesday, 23 December, 2020 9:35AMNote-Supervisor

A2113545Tuesday, 16 February, 2021G000517 Foster states that he is concerned that A2113545 is in pain. He tried to lift him by the abdomen last night and he cried out. He is not sure if he is painful on the abdomen or if its the hind legs. He had good appetite this morning but has not been as active as he normally is. He seems a bit lethargic according to foster. During exam A2113545 was tense and stoic. Did not show any obvious signs of pain most likely due to him being nervous. Rx: Carprofen 100mg: 1.5 tabs PO SID x 3 days #5ct. Sent foster home with Interceptor and Nexgard and asked him to give it after finished with Carprofen and he is doing better. Informed foster that if he does not respond well to tx, the next step is to schedule to bring him in and we will sedate him to be able to take radiographs.Tuesday, 16 February, 2021 1:36PMMedical
A2113545Tuesday, 16 February, 2021Foster Update Cont. " Does your foster pet beg for food at dinner time? " Yes, he is still being helped with this behavior and is doing well " How does your foster pet accept treats? " very well, he will sit and wait with my other dogs. He takes snacks gently from our hands. " Do you know anyone that may be interested in your foster pet? " No " Are you currently promoting your foster pet on your own? " We will be soon, he has put on some weight and had a bath so we will start taking pictures and videos this week. " Is there any other type of information you can share on your foster pet? " Ace seems to have been kept outside and was not familiar with being inside a home. He was very scared and reactive in his crate for the first 3 days we had him. He would growl when we approached his crate. However, once he realized we were friendly and gave lots of treats he was easily redirected from that behavior. He also flinched a lot when we would raise our hands around his head or when we would raise our voice to get his attention to stop doing something he shouldn't be doing. He is learning how to be a normal dog now and has made really good improvements these last two weeks. We now allow him to roam freely around our home and only need to secure him during feeding time. With more time and patience he can be on his way to be a really good dog. Tuesday, 16 February, 2021 10:19AMBehavior

A2113545Wednesday, 26 May, 2021P. Goen 3186 I met with Ace's foster parents on 05/22 at the Tamarac adoption event to review some thoughts/concerns they have regarding Ace's behavior From what I saw, he is reactive to new people and passers by but it appears to be compounded by a protective behavior towards the Fosters. When I initially met him I allowed him to approach me from behind while in a crouched position and he was fine with the short interaction allowing me to pet him and stiffing me. As I started to move away, he stiffened so I had the fosters pull him back for me to stand. After that he was primarily staying by the foster mom while the foster dad (apparently Ace's favorite) remained next to me but Ace was watching me very intently. As I was talking to them, I was moving my hands gesturing things and at one point as my hand moved in the direction of Ace and the foster mom, Ace lunged and air snapped at my hand. From that point on he was very wary of me and pulled forward a few more times toward me during our interaction. This seemed to frequently preceded by me looking directly at him or gesturing with my hands in a manner that moved toward one of the foster parents. It did appear that some of this protective behavior may be compounded by the foster parents bracing for a negative reaction on approach and definitely being more wary of others (understandibly) once Ace displays a negative reaction. These observations were shared with his foster parents and it was suggested that they try to help others that Ace meets maintain a neutral bladed posturing and avoid direct eye contact while trying to build a relationship with Ace.Wednesday, 26 May, 2021 5:33PMBehavior
A2113545Tuesday, 01 June, 202106/01/21 Staff was unable to move Ace from intake to the floor in a safe manner using a leash due to his behavior.

A2113545Thursday, 03 June, 2021Time Frame: 4-5 months in foster care Name and ID: Ace (A.K.A. Bobo as we call him) How was foster pet around other people? He struggles with fear when first meeting people and needs more socializing to get over this. Once he gets to know you he is very friendly. Did foster pet behave while you were eating? Ace is still learning not to beg for food at the table. He was an outside dog so the smells when we are eating get him excited however he is easily redirected and will lay down once he settles down. Did foster pet beg for food?^ How did foster pets accept treats? He is very treat motivated and takes treats nicely. Though Ace has never been rough about taking treats from us he gets very excited, and you have to remind him to sit down before he can get his treat. He also loves ice and will ask for it when we are at the fridge getting a drink. Did anyone show any interest in a foster pet? He did visit with an adopter however it did not work out. Other comments: -Ace (A.K.A. Bobo as we call him) has made improvements to his health and behavior since he has been with us. He was an outside dog for his young life and needed to learn not to be a bull in a china shop, which he did quickly. Ace is very treat motivated and once he learns to trust you he becomes a completely docile and adorable dog. He lets us give him a bath and touch him all over. He will curl up on the sofa with us and gives belly when he wants a good rub. He is not a noisy dog either and hardly barks at all. He has a cute howl he does when he gets excited and hears us coming into the house. -Ace is much less timid or afraid as he used to be (he was constantly flinching when we went to pet him) however he needs training beyond what I can do by myself. He knows how to sit, he comes when he is called, plays fine with our big dog and we can have him loose in the house and yard without too many issues other than his constant licking, and clumsy running. He could benefit from more socializing with other people and seems to want to say hello when I walk him however, he jumps and pulls too much for me to feel comfortable even trying to say hello to another person. In the car, he is protective and will growl and bark at people and other cars. Also due to Covid 19 getting close to people is a constant issue. If there is a way to get him some training or picked up by a rescue who has more resources to help with his socializing and meeting new people, that would be great.Thursday, 03 June, 2021 3:58PMBehavior
A2113545Saturday, 05 June, 2021Hi, I'm Ace! (a/k/a Bobo) A2113545 I just returned to the shelter from many months in foster care. I did GREAT in my foster home, and I sure love my people. (Just see the video I did while in foster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3y6QoCuA6E) (best video ever, if I do say so myself) See how great I did with dogs- big and small?!? I can get a little protective of my people sometimes because I love them so. Just ask my foster family! They sure did love me and want the best for me, but it was never intended to be my permanent home. And I really don't like living in a shelter environment, as I have a tad of the stranger danger. I'm afraid if I stay back here too long, I am going to get REALLY stressed out. Can you help me find my way home!?!?! Did I mention, I also speak SPANISH!?!?! Saturday, 05 June, 2021 10:24AMRescue
