About Zelda

!!! AVAILABLE for Adoption from Foster Care !!! ZELDA FKA BELLA - A-59600 Photos and Video: Zelda catching treats! - https://youtu.be/6B99cKeqJGo Dog Meet: Bella and Popcorn - https://youtu.be/kc5m9GMw7qQ Personality: Zelda is a very sweet and friendly girl. She is a very active dog who loves being outside. She can also be very chill and loves to cuddle in bed or the couch. She's very easy to train. Intake Type: 3/29 Return after 4 months - Reactive Behavior Medical Observation: (4/28) Vet Check -- Between toes mild-moderately erythematous on dorsal and ventral aspects, gets progressively pinker the more she gets worked up. No ulceration or moist dermatitis, no salivary staining or evidence of secondary infection. Suspect in part due to allergic skin disease, but also component of excitability that contributes to erythema. Really dislikes having feet touched. All nails look long, but quicks are also very long. Has a history of being challenging for nail trims per owner surrender sheet, and trimming nails was what prompted bites in more than one occasion. Trimmed nails today, required three people, leash muzzled and mostly laying her down on side. Quicked multiple nails despite only trimming small amount due to length of quicks. Behaviorally fought and thrashed whenever you tried to touch her feet (not able to do this in a fear free positive way) but once we were done and unmuzzled no redirection of behavior and responded very well to peanut butter treat. Recommend walking patient on concrete or pavement regularly to naturally file down nails and push quicks back. (3/31)Vet Check - Older adult spayed female pup with suspected allergies contributing to pinnal and scleral hyperemia and skin. Owner reports was seen at a vet for allergies and anxiety and did receive an allergy shot and anxiety meds (exact medication not written). Initial surrendering owner in October reported aggression towards other dogs, recent surrendering owner reports aggression towards people with reactivity towards strangers on walks, bit vet twice at previous hospital and bit roommate when helping to trim her nails - none of the bites broke skin. Very excitable in shelter, hard-barking in kennel and has previous history here of deteriorating kennel presentation/behavior. History of bites with nail trims and owner reported that was unable to have nails trimmed at vet due to behavior, after quicking one nail discontinued attempts to trim, quicks are very long. Will start Trazodone for behavior and needs additional enrichment and exercise if possible. Obese and would also benefit from weight-loss plan. (11/21) Vet Check- 7 yo FS pittie with recurrence of happy tail that was treated 2-3 weeks ago. She is also experiencing declining kennel behavior which is worsening the happy tail. Her happy tail was healing with carprofen and trazodone however she has worsened it today and needs to be restarted on meds. Is sweet when outside of kennel but her tail is deteriorating due to stress in shelter. Behaviorally urgent. Needs promotion to rescue, foster, or adoption to quiet environment where tail can heal. (11/14) Spayed and Microchipped (11/06) Happy tail resolved. Removed e-collar (10/26) Happy tail, being treated for otitis externa. (10/16) Overweight. Behavior Observation: (4/21) Easy to leash, pulls moderately outside. Urinated and defecated on our walk. Aloof and shows little interest in handler when in the play yard. Not interested in toys or treats. Barked, growled, and lunged at another dog walking past at a distance of about 20-30 feet. Easy to return to kennel. (3/31) Vet Staff -- Kennel-side hard barking at gate but vet nurse reports relative ease in leashing and removing from kennel. In exam room did jump up and lightly mouth vet's hand but seemed more excited than aggressive. Muzzled for exam due to history of aggression and reactivity and did flail a bit throughout exam. (3/29) Adoptive Owner -- Nervous, calm, aggressive to strangers, house trained most of the time, fights with other dogs, jumps on people, destructive--chews things, barks at other dogs and people, snaps at people, snaps at animals, aggressive--will jump/snap and bite if feels threatened, comes when called, hyperactive, good with cat (seems intimidated by cat). She only bites/snaps when afraid. She is very afraid of other dogs and people, which makes walks difficult in the city. Whenever she is approached by strangers or by other dogs, she will react and sometimes snap at them. One example the owner gave was when people stop her on the street and try to pet her or reach towards her, the dog will jump up and snap at their face. She sits when she is calm, she knows paw. When she is calm she is a good dog.She has snapped at people/animals before, but there were 3 bite incidents: first one, owner was walking dog, a random person walked by and she jumped up and bit his hand--the guy didn't approach her, it was a random bite. Second time was at vet - bit vet's hand twice. Recent incident on 3/28: dog bit the roommate while roommate and owner were trying to trim her nails. None of the bites broke skin (11/21) Vet Staff -- sniffing around exam room, excited and happy to give kisses (10/26) Vet staff -- BAR! Friendly but reactive when injured tail touched. (10/24) Behavior staff -- Went to after school program with cafeteria full of elementary school kids. Stayed loose, calm, and mildly attention seeking. Interacted very well with all the kids and allowed a long line of kids to pet her one by one. Settled down nicely in the car ride to and from the event. (10/18) Volunteer Evaluation -- Ducked a few times when attempting to leash but then was eventually able. Wiggling and tail wagging in kennel. No pulling. Walks very slowly. Loose and allows all handling. Loves pets. Tried to jump in lap. Gives kisses. Zero issues with petting head, back, tail, and feet. No interest in tag or toys at this time. Had a good fence meet with another dog. Evaluated Green. (10/16) Vet Staff -- Playful (10/16) Per Previous Owner -- Owned for 6.5 years. Protective, active, comes when called, nervous, good with people, good with children of all ages. Aggressive towards other dogs.

!!! AVAILABLE for Adoption from Foster Care !!! AGENT S - A-66536 Photos and Video: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1FDC2uE3N6Uvo1Fo8 Day Trip! - https://photos.app.goo.gl/nmDJRV9C3uxWvyjo6 Agent S Enjoying the Park! -- https://youtu.be/N4wN1Ab0kKY Agent S in the Car -- https://youtu.be/z6a6ltLE8iw Agent S and Volunteer Friend! --https://youtu.be/1qBnyvms5d4 Agent S Outside -- https://photos.app.goo.gl/1FDC2uE3N6Uvo1Fo8 Agent S with Staff 1 -- https://youtu.be/5Xk6coqCpy4 Agent S with Staff 2 -- https://youtu.be/ejBuz6OUa5s Intake Type: Stray Medical Observation: (5/3) 4 yr old unaltered male. Just recovered from a URI. Vaccinated. Behavior Observation: (5/13) Attempted dog meet with Oreo but began snapping immediately upon introduction. (5/12) Volunteer Day Trip -- Agent S is a very good boy! On our day trip, we went for long walks, ran a bit, shared snacks and enjoyed a beautiful view of the Ben Franklin bridge. I was amazed by how well he does in the car - he mostly just sat and looked out the window and at the end of our date he took a nap (not even once he tried to hop on the front sit!). Quite the sight to see! I noticed that although an independent guy, he does come when called and enjoy pets, head and back scratches as well as some cuddles! He was very polite of people passing by, didn't bark nor was reactive. He was also very, very interested in other dogs and wanted to say hi very badly. He does need to work on his leash manners as he's a very strong guy, but I bet that if he gets regular exercise it'll get better naturally. Agent S would be a great buddy for someone active, who enjoys running and being active/outside. He seems to be quite an adventurous guy and would probably love going on hikes where he gets to explore and sniff all of the smells too! He was also not very food motivated but did take treats very gently. (4/21) Per Staff -- Easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Pulls through shelter and out to yard. In yard, initially fairly aloof as he runs laps around perimeter. Does return to handler after urinating and defecating and accepts pets from back of neck to flank with loose body. Easily distracted by passing vehicles does not pay much attention to handler but continues to accept pets with loose body language when handler approaches. Easily returned to kennel and leash easily removed. (4/19) Dog Meet --Attempted dog meet with Sheila through fence. Agent S was very aroused, vocalizing, muzzle punching the fence. When met Sheila on leash, attempted to snap before able to introduce. Took in separate yard and continued to fixate on Sheila from across the parking lot. Still allowed handling and did not tense up. No interest in toys or treats. Pulled heavily through parking lot and into shelter. Placed back in kennel and leash removed without issue. (4/19) Per Staff -- Agent S was easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Still bows when leash is presented but easily looped. Once on leash, pulls through shelter and outside until in yard. In yard, runs laps for 5 or so minutes before returning to handler. Allows handling all over with loose body. Chases a rope toy but does not play with it once he gets to it. When handler stops petting, uses nose to nudge for more pets to flank. Pulls back to kennel but easily returned to kennel and easily unleashed. (4/18) Per Staff -- Moderately difficult to remove from kennel due to dog retreating and then coming forward again. Friendly, but conflicted. Once looped, exited easily and only pulled slightly while walking to evaluation room. Allowed handling all over although did show some signs of stress - heavy panting and some displacement sniffing. No issues returning to kennel or removing lead. (4/15) Was able to remove from kennel again on 4/15. When assessor approaches kennel, Agent S comes to front of kennel, takes treats nicely and pushes against kennel door to solicit pets, allows pets with loose body language. Leashing is easier than last time but Agent S still bows and then retreats before coming forward again and bowing. Is able to be leashed with no snapping at leash and readily leaves kennel. He pulled strongly through shelter and parking lot into yard. In yard, Agent S is initially tense but loosens after a few minutes and allows pets over entire body with relatively loose body language. Did not show interest in toys. One member of the public did walk by the fence which caused Agent S to tense and bark. Handler was able to pick leash up with no issue. Agent S pulls through the parking lot and shelter when returning. He is easily returned to kennel and leash is easily removed. (4/14) Per Staff -- Agent S approached for treats and took them gently but would bow and then retreat to back of kennel once presented with leash. After a few attempts, Agent S became overstimulated and started nipping at leash. A very loud barking dog in the kennel next to Agent S seemed to be escalating the situation. The handlers ended the interaction and moved to the other side of the kennel, which was quieter. Agent S remained at the kennel door as the handlers attempted to leash and accepted pets and treats. The handler was able to leash Agent S and the dog immediately exited the kennel, pulling strongly through the shelter and to the outside. Agent S continue to pull through parking lot, zig zagging in front of handler until we got into a yard. Agent S' body language in yard was tense and handlers attempted some pets to flank which were accepted. Agent S was very aloof in yard, tracing perimeter repeatedly but would accept treats from handler when he passed by. Showed no real interest in toys beyond chasing a tennis ball once. When members of the public would walk by the fence, Agent S would tense and hard bark. Agent S tensed up when handler picked up leash to go back inside and pulled strongly on walk back to kennel. Agent S dodged going back into the kennel but was lured in with treats and easily unleashed. (4/12) Per Staff -- Unable to remove from kennel. Took treats with a soft mouth, ears back, tail neutral. As soon as the leash was in sight he moved to the back of the kennel and would not approach. (4/12) Per Staff -- Still unable to be removed from kennel. Dog is hard barking at front of kennel, retreats and then charges towards front of kennel, snapping at bars. Spent 8-10 minutes attempting to coax with treats and Fresh Pet but behavior continued. When attempted to leash, dog snapped repeatedly and tore leash. (4/10) Behavior -- Initially dog lunging and hard barking at approach of assessor. Ceased barking when treat was presented, but still showing teeth. Assessor dropped treat and stepped away. Approached dog for a second time, dog this time was not snapping/lunging, but was low growling and extremely stiff. Able to drop treat in kennel and stepped away for another few moments. Came back, dog was on other side of kennel, but was able to call him over and again give treat. Dog continued tense posture with low tail, but ceased offensive behavior and growling. (4/10) Upon intake, one individual surrendering the dog had to place the dog in the kennel; ACA commented that the woman who was also present at the surrender said she was "terrified" of the dog. Dog was surrendered in a muzzle that needed to be removed, after finder placed the dog in the kennel. Despite the muzzle, the dog tried to bite the leash multiple times, snapping at ACA. Was able to get the slip leash around the muzzle, and unclasp it. After, the dog seemed to calm down and all signs of aggression stopped. (4/8) Intake -- The finder's nephew was walking the dog, a neighbor approached the dog and the dog snapped and latched onto the man's pants. The man was not injured, and is totally okay. That was the only time the dog has ever tried to actually bite someone, usually it was just hard barking and growling (which he did to me in the lobby). Per finder - Aggressive towards all people, only good with one person, protective. The dog growls at children. The finders keep the child away from them.

Once outside he became frustrated that he could not go into the front parking lot and began mounting my leg. I used the fence as a tie out and was able to make some distance where he could not mount. He continued to attempt to mount for about 3 minutes until he was distracted by a smell and I was able to redirect his attention and we could start walking again. No issues returning to the building or kennel. (4/16) Initially baring teeth when kennel is approached, followed by a snap. Treat offered and snapped again, but then realizing it was a treat, stopped, and ate quickly off ground. Low growled while visiting dog in kennel nextdoor, handler turned and offered another treat.
