About Taz

Taz ACCT-A-78805 Intake: Stray Sex: Male Age: 5 Years Altered: No Hi there! My name is Taz! I'm 5 years young and neutered. I'm about 29 lbs and believed to be a puggle mix--though we can't be too sure since I was found as a stray. I was pretty nervous while at the shelter and stressed while getting kenneled which led me to having to a couple bite incidents. My volunteer and staff friends saw through my fear though, which led me to foster care where I've been my very best self. I'm very food motivated (hot dogs are my favorite!) and I've been told that I'm a fast learner. I've mastered "sit" "come," "look," and "in" (for when it's time for me to head to my room). I'm working on other commands like "off" and "leave it" for when I jump up for attention or try to taste a yummy street treat. ;) I've been living with my 2 large foster siblings that are male and female pit bull mixes and it's been a blast! I love being around other dogs and enjoy play wrestling with my foster siblings. Some of my favorite pastimes include playing ball (I even bring it back to you), chewing on nylabones, and enjoying stuffed animals with squeakers in them. My foster parent says I'm like their little shadow that follows them around the house. I also love naps and being a lapdog. When it's time to go for a walk I get super excited and hop around like a bunny. I'm still working on not pulling as much on the leash. I'd prefer a home that is patient and willing to go slow with me. Adult humans are my favorite. Tiny humans make me nervous. I'm a huge fan of positive reinforcement training and promise to be my very best self for humans that come prepared with hot dogs and yummy treats. I'd also really enjoy a home with another dog. Any size is cool with me--as long as they enjoy having a 29 lbs dude like me around. If you think we might be a good match reach out to my foster parent Rachel via email at rachellawbaugh@gmail.com Videos: Taz Takes Treats: https://youtu.be/8wqidPNdv0w https://youtu.be/YWEF__RlysU https://youtu.be/yueI9JCUSrE Dog Meets: Taz and Doug: https://youtu.be/IMLrb3UowEo Taz and Doug 2: https://youtu.be/aijqDpr6IuU Bite Details: (12/10) -- His slip lead had come loose, so Lifesaving staff member got a treat in her left hand to distract Taz while she went to readjust the lead with her right hand. She can't remember if Taz took the treat or not, but he bit her right hand and latched. Level 3B. (11/09)-- Bit Animal Care Attendant last night while attempting to get Taz back into kennel. Bite was to finger, level 3. Medical Observation: (11/06) fully vaccinated and checked in Behavioral Observation: 1/4 (per Foster) -- Day One in foster: For transport he walked into a crate nicely that I loaded into my car. Once at my place he got out of the crate and car with ease. I have him set up in a spare bedroom to decompress and have some space to himself. He knows sit and loves hot dogs. He pulls on walks, but it's manageable since he's small. He's not neutered yet and loves to mark on each post and tree. I have a pee pad set up in the corner of the room that he's already been using to pee. Day Two in foster: He slept the whole night through in his room without a peep. Continues to pee just on the pee pads while inside. Does majority of his business outside during our walks. Ate all of his kibble for breakfast and dinner. He's heard and seen my dogs through the doorway and only had tail wags and loose body language. I spend time in the room with him throughout the day while working from home and doing a puzzle off work hours. He'll do some whining when I leave the room but he settles within minutes. I have toys out for him to occupy himself. He's enjoys stuffies and nyla bones. He'll rotate between laying in his crate and laying on a bed outside of the crate. I haven't attempted to handle him much or even pet him. I'm continuing to respect his space and mindful of the issues reported about him while in the shelter. Honestly, he's surprised me with his best behavior so far. Day 3-6 in Foster: Taz continues to warm up in foster care. He's settled nicely into a routine and goes to the door when he's ready for walks. He no longer pulls as much on the leash. He's had loose body language and appears relaxed when seeing dogs and people from afar. His favorite activity is being 'kitchen supervisor.' He'll sit and watch as my roommate and I cook. When we eat he puts his puppy eyes to work while sitting nicely. When excited he'll hop around like a bunny. He's solicited pets and even rolls over for belly rubs. We've been cautious of handling him due to his prior sensitivities, but he's continued to ask for pets by leaning into us and using his head to nudge our hands. He's been relaxed, loose, and shown no concerning behaviors during any handling. He trades toys nicely and likes to carry his stuffies proudly. Day 7-14 in foster: Taz has continued to do well in foster care. He's allowed all handling and enjoying pets. He now asks for head massages and belly rubs regularly. He tolerated a bath with some peanut butter encouragement and really enjoyed the towel dry afterwards. I took him to get neutered at ACCT and he sat in the back nicely while tethered. I was able to place Taz in the surgery kennel with no issue and remove him after the surgery with ease. Vet staff said he was a very good boy. Taz continues to sleep through the night in his own room, takes treats nicely, and do well being left alone while rotating time being out between my resident dogs. I've started walk alongs individually with each of my resident dogs. Taz has been loose, friendly, and polite during walks. 12/13 (Per Staff) --Taz participated in today's photoshoot. When I went to his kennel, he allowed me to leash him, and pulled to get outside. He'd gone a walk with a KA earlier. He was uninterested in pets and was given to a volunteer (blue) handler who was familiar with him and his issues. He was very motivated by hot dog treats. He took several treats from the hand. He participated in the photoshoot, and then was returned to kennel. While returning him to his kennel, hot dog treats were tossed on the ground which resulted in him allowing for his collar to be removed and the loop to be loosened so it could easily be removed in kennel. Once in the kennel, he jumped in and more hot dog treats were dropped. He ate them too quickly for the leash to be removed. Dropped more hot dog toward the front of the kennel, which allowed for leash to be quickly removed. Once removed he had already finished the hot dog treats and as door was shut, he jumped up hard barking and snarling. 12/13 (Per Staff) -- Kennel Presentation: Hard barking. Hard barking on approach but loosens when leash is presented. Takes treats greedily and is able to be leashed. Returning to kennel, switched to temp lead. Taz enters kennel without issue but then turns and starts snapping as leash as kennel door is closed. Did not attempt to remove leash. Leash Skills: Pulls Moderately On Leash Handleability: Aggressive/Unable to handle. Unable to fully handle due to behavior. Tolerates slow pets to rear with tense body but whale eyed and growling for any other attempted handling. Tag: Did not attempt Toys: No interest. No interest in rope toy or ball. Color Level: Blue 11/30 (Per Staff) -- Easily removed from kennel, walked fast put did not pull through kennels. Sniffed around office. No interest in treats or toys. Solicited attention. Allowed handling. When stopped petting, jumped up asking for more. Easily walked back through kennels, but once returned to kennel started hard barking and showing teeth. 11/19 (Per Staff) -- NRO, off BQ 11/13 (Per Staff) -- Taz participated in the photoshoot today. He was easy to leash in his cage and walked out without any issue. He appears very housetrained as he pooped only a few minutes after walking out of the kennel. He was nervous in the room, and he growled at the photographer when he reached forward with a treat. He walked up the dog ramp after hesitating at first. I had my hand near his rear and he growled when I moved it but was easily redirected by a treat and squeaky toy. After several photos he walked down the ramp and back to his cage. Right before we got to the cage he peed a lot, and did not want to go back in, and immediately tried to snap at the leash once he was in the cage and snap at the door, so I left the slip leash on him. 11/06 (Per Vet) -- Fractious, QAR 11/06 (Per Finder) -- fearful, unsocialized to people, can be aggressive and try to bite if you attempt to pet him, pulls a lot on leash This animal is currently available from foster care through ACCT Philly's Adoptions Programs.

Approached by staff member to assist, and Cerberus, clearly overstimulated/overwhelmed with flailing body, redirected and nipped at staff member's leg through jeans. Did not break skin. Staff then went to other side of kennel, opened door, and encouraged dog to step back into kennel via the other side. Volunteer was then able to close door behind, leaving leash on.

During this time, dog again became mouthy, jumping up on volunteer and nipped at hands, drawing a small amount of blood. Leash was removed, however, door was shut carefully. Band-aid used to cover finger. Dog remained over-stimulated but friendly. show less

Bella ACCT-A-80046 Intake: Owner Surrender Sex: Female Age: 2Y Altered: Yes Meet Bella! This brindle beauty is about 2 years old and full of love. She's the tug-o-war queen and happily entertains herself with her rope and Kong toys. She indulges in long naps in her kennel or bed throughout the day, while coming over every once in a while for a nice rub. She enjoys walks around the neighborhood and is great on the leash. Bella's a little timid of loud noises and busy intersections but is getting more comfortable on each walk. She will need to be the only pet in the home, as she is reactive to other dogs. Bella will need time to warm up, but will be extremely loyal to her new family. Bella is crate trained and working on house training.

She is crate-trained, and not fully housebroken but had been taking outside about every 2-3 hours during the day and rewarding all outdoor bathroom breaks; started to bark when she needed to go out (most of the time). Bella was reactive to other dogs and young children, would probably do best as the only pet. She's a super chewer, but only on her toys! 1/4 (Intake) -- Returned from foster due to continued reactivity towards strangers, dogs, and children that has not improved over duration of foster care. 1/4 (Per Previous Foster) -- She barks at all people and dogs when approached, and tends to pull towards them. She'll bark at some people/dogs that are further away (across the street or down the block), especially if they speak or acknowledge her.

Benjey ACCT-A-82369 Intake Type: Owner Surrender (Aggression to Animals) Sex: Male Altered: No Age: 5Y Medical Observation: (1/9) Normal. Mild tartar. Friendly; BAR Behavior Observation: (1/18) Per Foster Staff -- Kennel Presentation - Easy to leash/social. Shy but approaches kennel door and allows leashing. On return, hesitant to re-enter but will go in with a bit of encouragement, or if handler steps in first. Leash Skills - Pulls Minimally On Leash. Walks excellently on leash with almost no pulling at all. We encountered another dog through the fence. Benjey perked his ears up and raised his tail, then trotted over to the other dog and sniffed him through the fence with tail flagging. It was very easy to redirect his attention just by calling his name, and he did not fixate on the other dog. Handleability - Tense/Allows all handling. Was initially quite tense and took time to warm up. He was tense outside while in the run, but once he came into indoor eval room he loosened up and allowed allover handling. Eventually he began soliciting attention, licking my hand and giving kisses. He would place his head on handler's lap, lean up against handler and lay down right next to handler. He takes his time warming up, but then allows all handling and gets cuddly and affectionate. Go slow at first until he is ready. Tag - Engages in play Toys - Gives up willingly. Initially had Benjey in a run outside, where he was not interested in toys. He appeared tense and nervous outside and would flinch or tense up at any loud sounds or cars passing. Went into the indoor eval room, where he was still tense at first, but once he found a tennis ball he became very excited and happy, started wagging his tail and jumping around with the ball. He would drop the ball at the handler's feet and allow handler to pick it up without issue, no resource guarding observed. Very playful! Evaluated Blue due to nervousness, but hand-shyness has improved considerably and overall behavior is much better. (1/12) Per Foster Staff -- Kennel Presentation - Nervous. Nervous in kennel. Would approach handler to take treats from hand but ran away from leash. Took many attempts to successfully leash him. Once leashed, exited kennel easily. Also re-entered without issue, but then would not approach kennel door so I could remove leash. Leash Skills - Fearful. No pulling, but afraid of leash. Handleability - Tense and nervous, would initially duck or move away when attempted handling. Avoidant of handler and only approached a few times for drive-by sniffs. Later approached me with some low tail wags and allowed some pets on his back, but appeared wary and whale-eyed me so handled very minimally. Did not attempt tag. Interested in toys but does not take possession. Followed a ball when tossed. Evaluated Blue, recommend TTA. (1/11) Per Foster Staff -- Attempted to remove for evaluation. Benjey would tentatively approach me to take treats but was scared of the leash and would run to the other side of the kennel any time I tried to leash him. No aggression shown, just nervous of people and afraid of leash. Will reattempt eval later today. (1/9) Per Previous Owner -- Protects his home, obeys most of the time but can become territorial when people come to the house such as barking and trying to jump on them. He also wont allow other dogs to eat and move their bowls. He stalks around the other animals in the home and won't let them play or move around. Has been biting the other dogs in the home, usually he will stop when owner approaches and directs him to do so. Walks very nicely on leash next to his handler. Knows sit, get down, and go pee. He is a good dog but just needs the right environment without another male dog. This animal is currently available from foster care through ACCT Philly's Adoptions Programs.

Bro ACCT-A-81665 Intake Type: Return (1/06), Stray (12/28) Sex: Male Age: 1Y (estimated) Altered: yes **VIDEOS** Bro knows sit ---https://youtu.be/rWBiUo1lrHA Bro loves hotdogs --- https://youtu.be/7JBKNEk-axA Bro walking --- https://youtu.be/59qQ_s-yBbM Personality: Hi there, my name is Bro! While I may look like an ordinary dog, I'm really something special. For one, I think I'm a little lap dog -- I'll climb right into your lap and give you lots of kisses! I'm also the sweetest pup out there. I LOVE hanging out with people, and once I get to know you I'll stick by your side through thick and thin. And it doesn't hurt that I'm pretty handsome too! Basically I'm the whole package -- all I need is a home to call my own. Medical Observation: 1/21 (Vet Check) -- The patient has mild upper respiratory signs consistent with early CIRDC, or kennel cough. He will be started on antibiotics and monitored. 1/6 (Intake Exam) -- Friendly; fearful; QAR 12/28 (Intake Exam) -- Normal; friendly; BAR Behavior Observation: 1/22 (Per Lifesaving) -- I took Bro out for a morning staff walk. He was easy to leash in kennel. He was hard barking at the corner of the kennel but I realized the KA was cleaning the other side with a hose. Bro was not interested in treats in the kennel. I passed another staff member walking another dog. We passed each other but Bro and the other dog got too close to each other and hard barked and snapped at each other. No one was injured and Bro was fine after walking away from the other dog. Bro walked loosely on the leash, only pulled slightly when leaving the building. He peed and pooped almost immediately when outside. He was not interested in interacting with me nor was he interested in treats. Someone on a bike passed by and caught Bro's interest but he was not bothered by the cyclist. Another staff member had another dog in one of the runs and Bro fixated on the dog. Bro's back hair would stand up but he did not bark and he was able to redirect away with a simple tug on leash. I took Bro back inside because he was hypersalivating and was getting stressed. Bro was easy to walk back in the kennels, not distracted by other dogs barking. He was easy to unleash in kennel, allowed me to reach over his head and touch his neck. Ended the interaction with a bunch of treats. 1/21 (Per Vet) -- Slightly nervous, but friendly and easy to handle.

Butter ACCT-A-78944 Intake Reason: Owner Surrender Sex: Male Age: 10 years old Altered: Yes Personality: This is Butter! He may be a senior doggo, but sometimes it seems like no one told him that! He loves to play if you offer him a toy, but also seems to find no greater joy in the world than snuggling up on the couch and watching a movie. No matter how much room on the couch there is, if you invite him, he will find a way to squeeze onto it and maneuver his head onto your lap for pets. He is also a master of the cutest sad-eyes when you stop petting him. He is very well trained and is a people-pleaser with his behavior. For example, he was sniffing at something he shouldn't get into, but after being told "no" just once, he stopped immediately and didn't mess with it again. He has had no accidents in the house, is very happy to hang out in his crate, and has shown no interest in chewing on anything that is not a dog toy. It is rare to meet a 70-pound dog and immediately know that it has 0% aggression and 100% love, but that is Butter for you. He even coexists well with cats! If your home has love to give and couches that you're okay with a dog being on, then Butter is the dog for you. Please email cwitting@vet.upenn.edu if you would like to learn more about this gentleman! Videos: Butter in his foster home: https://youtu.be/7S8ryt5mK7Q & https://youtu.be/789rEdlCh20 Bud and Butter walk along attempt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vC9c-0vRM4 Bud and Butter fence meet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4hanF27V-Y Medical Observation: (11/19) Vet Check: The patient is healing very well from his scrotal ablation/mass removal. He was very friendly for today's exam and his behavior has greatly improved following his surgery. He has a moderate lameness of his right forelimb with thickening at the elbow - which likely represents osteoarthritis. He has a small dermal mass on his left hind leg, which may be an additional mast cell tumor. (11/18) Vet Check: The patient's scrotal tumor was a low grade mast cell tumor (MCT), which carry a relatively good prognosis with most dogs surviving over two years. He may develop additional mast cell tumors that will need to be removed, and due to the size and location of the tumor it is likely that some neoplastic tissue was left behind, so recurrence is possible. . (11/13) Vet check: 3-4 day postoperative for scrotal mass removal. Patient remains quieter and nervous - uncertain if medications administered have been taken as patient has not been eating. Mild erythema and swelling seen at most caudal aspect of incision site may be normal for surgical procedure but recommend recheck in 2 days. Monitoring of appetite recommended to ensure patient is receiving medications. As patient is quite nervous, foster care recommended for duration of recovery - to reduce stress and to ensure he is eating and taking medications. (11/9) Per Triage Exam: Patient is a senior dog with a very large scrotal tumor that is ulcerated and bleeding Behavior Observation: (11/29) Per Staff: Laying on bed when handler approached kennel but came to front of kennel and sat for treats and was easily leashed. Walked nicely through building and outside. Immediately urinated and defecated once out of building so most likely housebroken based on this and history recorded on walk sheet. In yard, explored perimeter and then came back to handler and accepted slow pets all over with loose body. Does a slow motion run when excited. Went into office for time outside of kennel. Enjoyed a Busy Bone but no interest in rope toy. After finishing Busy Bone, took a nap on bed. Easily returned to kennel. Behavior seems to have improved greatly. (11/19) Per Vet: Very friendly and easy to handle, tolerated all aspects of exam, solicited attention. Behavior markedly improved compared to time of intake. (11/16) Pet staff: Kennel Presentation: Nervous. Nervous and shaking in kennel on approach. Easy to loop but tense and whale eyed leash. Exited kennel with a little encouragement. Returning to kennel, hesitant to step up but follows handler into kennel. Leash is easily removed although body language is tense throughout interaction. Leash Skills: Pulls Moderately On Leash Handleability: Tense/Allows some handling. Tense throughout entire interaction and flinches at hand movements. Accepts slow pets to rear but walks away from handler after 30 seconds both times handler initiated pets so did not push handling further. Tag: No interest Toys: No interest Color Level: Blue Recommendations: TTA (11/13) Per vet staff: nervous and quieter but tolerated examination (11/13) Per staff: Very nervous and shaking in kennel. Some whale eyeing when being looped for removal. Tense and body shaking from fear. Able to coax out, although still hesitant to step down from kennel. Pulls moderately on leash. Can be stubborn while walking about direction. Tense and visibly flinches if hand moves near him. Appears uncomfortable. Will tolerate very slow touch. No interest in play or toys (11/9) Per vet staff: Friendly but tense when handled for exam so muzzled (11/9) Per previous owner: chill, relaxed, protective, hangs around family and sits with them 7.
