**** EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY! *** CAN YOU FOSTER OR ADOPT? WYATT NEEDS IMMEDIATE PLACEMENT & TREATMENT! He must get to a Vet Hospital by 6PM Today for possible foreign body!
Poor Wyatt has so little time. He was just circulated as an emergency pup who needs vet care NOW and must leave the shelter by 6:00 p.m. so he can get immediate abdominal ultrasound and surgery if operable. The medical staff are recommending EHR (euthanasia) if additional medical requirements cannot be provided as soon as possible. ☹ Wyatt may have a blockage, a foreign body that could cause him to lose his life. He needs a foster or adopter asap! If you foster, the rescue that pulls will pay his medical bills and you will provide supportive care. Hurry and MESSAGE our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance fostering or adopting her.
Other Notes: Wyatt has been flagged as a cruelty case for neglect. He broke the medical staff’s heart when he was so sweet, allowing all handling, and even kissing throughout his blood draw and exam.
Finder Notes: Finder stated she had found two days ago in the Bronx. The client stated that she was on her way to visit someone in the area when she saw this dog walking by itself on the side walk. The client stated that she decided to take the dog because the dog was very skinny and appeared ill...Wyatt ate the food she offered him however, he has been throwing up all of his food and then will eat his vomit. The client stated that this happened at least 4 times since she's had him.

view. Vet Notes: 12:11 PM. THORAX and ABDOMEN January 22, 2019: Orthogonal projections of the thorax and abdomen are available for review. (7 total). FINDINGS: Throughout the lungs a minimal bronchial pattern is noted. The heart and pulmonary blood vessels are normal. No tracheal, pleural space, or mediastinal abnormality is noted. The stomach contains a moderate amount of gas. The small intestine is normal size and is moderately fluid-filled, with several tiny linear mineral fragments. The colon contains a large amount of granular soft tissue opaque feces, with a larger accumulation of similar linear mineral fragments. The regions of the liver, kidneys, spleen, and urinary bladder are normal. Peritoneal serosal detail is normal. Both hips are moderately incongruent and have moderate periarticular new bone formation.
1. There is a mild diffuse bronchial lung pattern. This is commonly seen as an incidental, age-related variant of normal. Correlation with clinical findings is warranted and if clinical signs are present, the differential diagnosis includes all causes of bronchitis (e.g. primary inflammatory, allergic, infectious).
2. The abdominal radiographs are relatively normal, with numerous small intestinal and colonic mineral fragments, perhaps indicative of dietary indiscretion. The results of this evaluation are negative for signs of small intestinal mechanical obstruction. A definitive underlying cause for reported intermittent vomiting is not identified during this evaluation.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Treatment for presumptive gastroenteritis could be considered. If clinical signs persist, abdominal ultrasound is recommended to further evaluate. VET 991493

*** NEW NYC ACC RATING SYSTEM ***
Dogs with Level 1 determinations are suitable for the majority of homes. These dogs are not displaying concerning behaviors in shelter, and the owner surrender profile (where available) is positive. Some dogs with Level 1 determinations may still have potential challenges, but these are challenges that the behavior team believe can be handled by the majority of adopters. The potential challenges could include no young children, prefers to be the only dog, no dog parks, no cats, kennel presence, basic manners, low level fear and mild anxiety.
Dogs with Level 2 determinations will be suitable for adopters with some previous dog experience. They will have displayed behavior in the shelter (or have owner reported behavior) that requires some training, or is simply not suitable for an adopter with minimal experience. Dogs with a Level 2 determination may have multiple potential challenges and these may be presenting at differing levels of intensity, so careful consideration of the behavior notes will be required for counselling. Potential challenges at Level 2 include no young children, single pet home, resource guarding, on-leash reactivity, mouthiness, fear with potential for escalation, impulse control/arousal, anxiety and separation anxiety.
Dogs with Level 3 determinations will need to go to homes with experienced adopters, and the ACC strongly suggest that the adopter have prior experience with the challenges described and/or an understanding of the challenge and how to manage it safely in a home environment. In many cases, a trainer will be needed to manage and work on the behaviors safely in a home environment. It is likely that every dog with a Level 3 determination will have a behavior modification or training plan available to them from the behavior department that will go home with the adopters and be made available to the New Hope Partners for their fosters and adopters. Some of the challenges seen at Level 3 are also seen at Level 1 and Level 2, but when seen alongside a Level 3 determination can be assumed to be more severe. The potential challenges for Level 3 determinations include adult only home (no children under the age of 13), single pet home, resource guarding, on-leash reactivity with potential for redirection, mouthiness with pressure, potential escalation to threatening behavior, impulse control, arousal, anxiety, separation anxiety, bite history (human), bite history (dog) and bite history (other).
