A2122746Monday, 01 February, 2021Meet Tara A2122746 2nd Post 5 Years Old. Weighs 44 Lbs. A good samaritan brought emaciated Tara in to our care after she was found abandoned near our facility. She is displaying some cage aggression and we fear she could potentially hurt herself or staff. Tara is very shy, nervous and not sheltering well - she has shown some concerning behaviors such as stiffening up when attempting to pet her, showing teeth, and growling at her handler. Tara can be very easy to handle, playful, sweet while wagging her tail, excitedly greeting you at the front of her kennel and licking once you build trust with her. She also seems house-trained and understand basic commands. Tara was very nervous in playgroup around other dogs, as well as around any new or unfamiliar stimuli. Because of her nervousness and unpredictable behavior, Tara needs a dedicated owner that can help soothe her anxiety and fears. We feel that Tara will thrive and be much happier in a more suitable environment with a dedicated handler that will give her the patience and time she needs to feel comfortable. If you can help Tara find a responsible and dedicated owner in a loving home, please contact us at Rescue@Broward.org. Each shelter pet is evaluated as an individual. The nature and urgency of each pet's rescue plea is determined based on the current state of their health and behavior. Sunday, 14 March, 2021 4:38PMRescue

A2122746Tuesday, 02 February, 202102/02/21 17:19 I manage to take her out twice today. The first, she was never aggressive but shy away when I open the kennel door for her to run through the leash. She would approach then shy off to the other side of the run. I left and came back to close her off from the other side of her run. Still hesitant but walked into the leash and crawled along side me. She would be fine walking beside you but then would pull majority of the walk. No issues going back in the kennel. The second, she eagerly meet me at the door, no issues leashing. continued to pull. She was released in the boneyard. She would occasionly walk to me with her tail wagging, she allowed me to scratch and pet her before she went back to exploring the boneyard. She would come when I whistle/ tell her, "come here". Allowed another staff member to enter boneyard and was excited to see her. played with a few toys.Tuesday, 02 February, 2021 5:40PMNote

Tara is very shy, nervous and not sheltering well - she has shown some concerning behaviors such as stiffening up when attempting to pet her, showing teeth, and growling at her handler.

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. Walk your pet on a leash to allow him/her to urinate or defecate and do not take your pet for long walks during this time. 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.

A2122746Sunday, 04 April, 2021A2122746 seems to have taken a liking to me after some time of working with her (she was always cautious around me when she first came to the shelter). It is my understanding that she is selective with certain kennel staff members. She enjoys my company and will approach the front of the cage when I pass by wagging her tail and licking my hand. She does not seem to get along with other dogs as she is dog reactive when going out on walks. She is capable of being a loving petin the right environment with an owner that is willing to take time with her.Sunday, 04 April, 2021 3:58PMBehavior
A2122746Saturday, 10 April, 202104/10/21 - 17:55 I have been hesitant to walk Tara due to her concerning notes and observed behavior, but today I was able to walk her without issues. She is extremely reactive in the kennel, charging the kennel door and barking any time a dog walks by, which appears to be increasingly intimidating. However, I was able to leash her and enjoy our walk outside together without any problems or moments of nervousness. She even allowed me to pet her calmly for a few seconds. I still have my guard up around her, but this interaction today gave me hope that someone will take a chance on her once they see how well behaved and calm she can be.

A2122746Saturday, 08 May, 2021TARA A2122746 5 years, 46 lbs. 3rd Post Tara is looking and feeling SOOO much better than when she arrived to our care in January. She can still get a little scared and act a little nervous in new situations or with new stimuli, but once she trusts you she's quite an affectionate girl. Tara does not like living in a kennel though, and she's got some abandonment issues so she needs a patient and understanding home to gain her trust. Meet Tara here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZU2yAuj9j8 The noise and other dogs in our busy kennel causes Tara a lot of distress and heightens her anxiety. So even though Tara has made a lot of progress, she needs to transition out of the kennel environment and into a capable home as soon as possible. To meet Tara, please submit an adoption application to acadadoptions@broward.org. If you can help Tara find the home she needs now, contact rescue@broward.org Each shelter pet is evaluated as an individual. The nature and urgency of each pet's rescue plea is determined based on the current state of their health and behavior. Saturday, 08 May, 2021 3:12PMRescue
A2122746Monday, 17 May, 2021most of the busy time i have to keep Tara locked on one side where i walk dogs. she does not stop pacing running jumping (has cut nails) barking. i usually walk her first (even though she pulls me to go right back inside) and walk her longer so she is tired. this has not helped her. i have also given her kong toys, or rawhide treats (she ignores both) even locking her over she contines this behavior. i had placed her in end kennel with no traffic but also has not helped. Outside she wags tail with me, and enjoys her time, but i have walked her since her arrival. other staff still cannot walk her. she warms up to staff that she is most familar with. i still have to be careful, if i pet her without her seeing me she will attempt to nip.Monday, 17 May, 2021 7:27PMBehavior

A2122746Monday, 24 May, 2021I have removed Tara a couple of times from her kennel and she is very excited to get out both times, both times heading past kennels straight for the door. Today I was not able to get my leash securely fastened fast enough and she pushed past me. Although she approached a couple of kennels there was no marked reaction and I was able to pick her up and place her back in the kennel quickly and re-slip my leash without incident. We continued outside and in the yard she was very interested in any passing dogs and immediately ran towards any dogs that approached the vicinty. She has become increasingly affectionate with me and allows handling all over and rolls over on her back for belly rubs.Monday, 24 May, 2021 4:49PMBehavior
