TO BE KILLED – 8/29/2017
<3 He’s friendly, outgoing, affectionate and puppy playful. Charlie is an active youngster who wakes up every day full of joy and ready to explore the great, wide world. But his enthusiasm for a neighborhood cat wasn’t appreciated, and so it was off to the shelter for this poor family pet who can’t quite figure out what he did wrong. Neutered, perfectly housetrained, he knows many commands (his favorite is “give paw”) and he doesn’t even mind baths. What Charlie needed was simply some training, like all puppies need, on the command “drop it/leave it” so that he would understand that toys and treats and food were things to be shared readily. And just to be clear, his notes say that he has NO bite record for humans -- just the cat! (Stated as such, Bite history: No, but the victim was scratched by Charlie after she took away a treat that she showed him. Charlie jumped toward the victim and his paw hit her face causing the scratch.) Ok, so he jumped up and his toenail scratched her face? SERIOUSLY?
How many of us have had that happen and worse with our exuberant pups? Still, he does not want to share his resources, and that's a cause for concern, so some training is in order. If you are an experienced dog owner in an adult only home and you are CAT FREE, please don’t let this adorable gem of pup die on Tuesday 8/29. Step up for our super sweet, big hearted boy now and save his life. PM our page for assistance. Charlie’s life depends on YOU.

Dog closes mouth, becomes a bit tense. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Charlie was nervous and avoid interaction with the handlers. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Charlie engages in gentle play. He becomes uncomfortable with high energy play and will keep his distance. According to Charlie’s previous owner Charlie spent time with other dogs of various sizes and is relaxed and playful around them. The Behavior Department recommends that Charlie be placed in a home with resident dogs that are respectful and match his gentle play style. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 8/14/17: Upon intake Charlie was a bit nervous but after some time he became friendly and allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/15/17: During his medical examination, Charlie was trembling with his tail tucked and whale eyes, he was difficult to handle.
ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_No cats- Charlie bit a cat in the neighborhood and has shown a concerning level toward cats in the care center. He must not be placed into a home with cats or where he may be exposed to cats. _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Charlie be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Charlie to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Charlie to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Charlie presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding- Charlie is reported to growl/snap and bite over resources. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue “drop” and other trade up games so Charlie learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org _X_Anxiety- Charlie has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Charlie for this reason, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment.
