Izzy is an approximately 15 year old female mix. The owner received her 10 yrs ago as a gift from a friend. The owner is surrendering her because about 3 weeks ago Izzy began to have alot of health issues that she feels is due to old age. She feels that she is about to pass away anyday. I offered counseling and asked her if she wanted to keep her until she passes peacefully but she said that she just had a baby and is unable to walk her or clean up after the dog. She had health problems before. Her last vet visit was about 3 months ago and was told by the vet that if the problems get worse that he would need bloodwork. After the visit, Izzy got better but 3 weeks ago the problems started. Izzy has been vomiting and has explosive diarrhea. She has been wearing diapers and is menstrating. She has been eating but cannot keep her food down and has also been wearing diapers. The owner said that Izzy has been very lethargic and began limping. At this point, the owner has no choice but to surrender the animal.
Around strangers, Izzy is very friendly and outgoing. She plays gentle with adults and children. She is very playful and relaxed with other dogs. She is house- trained but since her health issues she began to potty indoors. She has also been wearing diapers. She tries to hold it until she goes outside but for the past 3 weeks she has been incontinent.
She is frightened by loud noises. She does not like baths or her nails clipped. She loves to be brushed.
The owner describes Izzy as friendly, affectionate, confident, excitable, and playful. Around the house, she follows the owner around and lies with her by her side. She has been mostly kept indoors and loves to sleep on her dog bed. She was being fed wet food but it started to give her really bad stomach problems, so the owner switched to dry food.
During the intake, Izzy was very calm had a loose body and open mouth. She allowed to be collared, scanned (negative) and to be photographed. She began to shake and could barely stand. She was very friendly and allowed to be carried to the back.
Izzy was surrender to us. Her previous owner stated that Izzy is very friendly and outgoing. She plays gentle with adults and children. She is very playful and relaxed with other dogs. Izzy at the shelter walks calmly on leash. She was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body, but trying to stay close. Kelly was shy during handling, but had soft body language. Izzy was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Izzy was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. She does not approach other dog, attempts to exit.
Izzy was shy during the assessment but she stays close to the assessor. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter. This dog is somewhat fearful and is offering signs of submission.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, shy body language , mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
