PREANASTHETIC WORK UP AND CYSTOTOMY/UROLITH REMOVAL WITH PLACEMENT
A shelter staff member writes:
Mia was surrendered to BACC because her owner was moving, and could not take her along. Mia was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection about two years ago, but was never treated. She now has a large bladder stone that will require surgery to remove. Mia can be on the shy side when you first meet her, but warms up after a few minutes, and has been very sweet and cooperative with our medical staff. Mia can be uncomfortable around unfamiliar children, and will likely do best in a home without them. Please help Mia get the medical care she needs, and pull her from BACC today!
Owner Surrender Profile
Mia is a 7 year old Maltese mix with a smokey gray coat. She has been with her owner since she was a pup. The surrender is due to her owner moving out of state to a location with a no pet policy. Mia is an inside dog with a medium activity level. She has lived with only adults. When unfamiliar children approach her and try to pet her in a quick, abrupt way her owner states she tends to low growl. She has never had play time with another dog, but when she passes by them on walks she allows them to sniff her and she sniffs them, but she has a mildly tense body. it is unknown how she is with cats. She has daily urination accidents in the home. The owner thinks it might be because of the UTI she was diagnosed with 2 years ago. Full treatment was never sought. She is not bothered when her owner touches her food bowl while eating or her toys or bones while using them. Mia knows sit, stay, down, and come. Mia enjoys slow walks on the leash multiple times a day. The groomer cuts her nails and her owner bathed her in the tub. Mia was afraid of getting bathed and would shake, but tolerated it. The owner states that Mia isn’t bothered when unfamiliar people approach. She is well behaved when left unattended and will rarely seek attention when her owner is home. Mia sleeps on a plush mat and is a picky eater. She prefers wet food over dry. At intake she kept close to her owner and was shivering. Her tail was low. The counselor had the owner scan her for a chip and when the counselor attempted to collar her she low growled. As soon as the owner left, she cried and was allowed to collar her.
Behavior: Experienced Home, No Children
Mia previously lived with two adults. The owner stated Mia has a medium activity level and is an inside dog. The owner stated when unfamiliar children approach her and try to pet her quick, she tends to do low growl. It was mentioned by the owners Mia understands sit, stay, down, and come. It was reported Mia enjoys slow walks on the leash multiple times a day. The owner states that Mia isn’t bothered when unfamiliar people approach her, she is also well behaved when left unattended and will rarely seek attention.
It was reported Mia was trembling with her tail low and had a low growl when trying to collar her upon intake. During SAFER Mia came into the assessment room calm, she was social towards the assessor and allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Mia was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Mia was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Due to some concerns of her previous behaviors with children and displaying low growls, the behavior department feels Mia can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children.
