11/09/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/09/15 13:49 Basic Information: Joey is a tan and white male Lhasa Apso who was surrendered due to his owner no longer being able to care for him. He was originally rescued from a shelter and has been with his owner for 5 years. He is described as mellow, friendly and affectionate. Personality: Joey has lived with two adults, he is described as respectful of children but owner stated he doesn’t play. Around other dogs he is respectful and keep his distance and will only smell and walk away., doesn’t play. He has not lived with cats. he is mostly housetrained but recently has had accidents in the home. He has beeb kept only indoors and is described as having a low activity level. Owner stated he usually sleeps and is found lounging around the home. Behavior: Joey has been urinating indoors often. When his food bowl is touched while eating he will follow the bowl or wait. He isn’t bothered when a treat is taken away. He enjoys baths and has been professionally groomed. He likes to be held and petted. He is friendly towards strangers and will generally be curious and smell them. For a new family to know: Joey is used to slow leashed walks twice a day. He doesnt play with toys or any games. He usually goes to the bathroom on cement and trees. When home he tends to be in his favorite spot and when left alone he is well beahved. He is fearful of thunder and will hide when he hears it. He eats dry food Beneful brand and is fed once a day. He enjoys any treat and sleeps in a quiet comfortable corner. Upon intake Joey was calm and had a loose body, he was disoriented and had issues walking. Counselor was able to collar, photograph and scan.
12 year old Joey is a bit of a mystery. Brought in by his owners claiming that he hadn’t been eating well for the last couple of weeks, his medical revealed that the level of his emaciation and dehydration would have been “unlikely to have occurred over 2 weeks”. He was matted, flea infested, and as a result of cataracts, Joey is blind and ate every ounce of food shelter staff put in front of him. We learn from his owner notes that he was adopted from an unnamed shelter 5 years ago, goes walks twice a day and eats once a day. Joey will need a much more detailed medical exam. He does have some sort of abdominal mass which could be anything from cancer to the result of undernourishment. ACC has made it clear that Joey can’t stay like this and unless someone steps up to foster or adopt Joey by noon tomorrow, they will euthanize him. If you have room in your home and your heart to get this sad little guy the care he so deserves, don’t delay—ACC won’t hesitate to make him gone forever tomorrow.
