Euthanasia deadline is: 5/24/15 at 5 pm NOTES FROM KILL SHELTER ABOUT THIS PET: Ital Greyhound mix; Tan and White; Spayed; 1 YR/4 MOS 22.70 LBS Bambi is fearful of and has no interest in human contact. She will take treats from people, but will dart away quickly thereafter. She constantly seeks safety in small, confined spaces. She is wonderful with other dogs and interacts comfortably and sociably with ... (Read More)them. Unfortunately, we have been unable to parlay this interaction into a more receptive attitude toward human interaction. She has not displayed any defensive behaviors, such as growling or snapping, but is completely avoidant when faced with human contact. BEHAVIOR EVALUATION: Overall Kennel Behavior: Cautious, shaking, avoidant of the leash. Once leashed Bambi would not walk, but tolerated being picked up and carried. Neutral Affiliation: Avoidant, stays at end of the leash, stiff, shaking, tail tucked. Soft Contact/Friendly Affection: Shut down, tolerates everything through fear. Mouth Check Tolerance: Tolerates through fear Paw/Ear Check Tolerance: Tolerates through fear Food with People: Uninterested Dog Introduction: Interested in the other dog and approached/sniffed, she then became avoidant after the other dog growled. Food with Other Dogs: Uninterested Play/Toys/Arousal/Ability to Settle: Too scared to show arousal, shut down. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Bambi was an adoption return after 2 months. She is house trained, but she did have some accidents. She does like stuffed toys. She is very fearful of people, but does get along well with other dogs. NOTES FROM SAFE HAVEN: Bambi was originally a victim of a hoarding case & was seized for cruelty. The big shelter originally kept & adopted out all but 2 of the dogs from that case. Safe Haven took the remaining 2 at the time (Ruby & Barnaby). Bambi is from the same case. I can tell you from experience with the 2 we took, the dogs have been through a very traumatic start in life & need a lot of time to learn to trust people (at least a month, if not more). They have all been super sweet, quiet, & great with other animals. HOW THE E-LIST ADOPTION PROGRAM WORKS: - The pets posted have NOT been saved & are in danger of being euthanized at the kill shelter on the deadline posted. - You must be 100% SURE you want to adopt this pet & commit to adopting this dog sight unseen (I know, scary, but keep reading it gets better...) - E-mail Safe Haven for an application @ Safe_Haven_Animal_Rescue@live.com & be screened before the deadline so I can pull this pet off the euthanasia list. - Once I have an approved adopter, I will pull the pet off the list, get them fixed & shots - I will deliver this pet to your home where you get to adopt your new furbaby - I will be available for help with training if you need it - You can return the pet to Safe Haven if for some reason it is not working out. All I ask is that you give it a good month before making that decision. - Please note: Most pets that come from the big shelters get upper respiratory infections. It is very common & is NOT serious. It is a virus that just needs to run it's course. Equivalent to you or I having a common cold. A dog is only contagious to another dog. Cat to cat. It is advised that you keep them separate for the first week. It is also STRONGLY ADVISED that you crate your new pet. Many are very fearful & a crate is a great tool in helping them get over that & keep them safe. I strongly believe in using crates as a training tool much the same as using a crib for a baby. Adoption fee is only $45 & includes: - Spay/Neuter surgery - Up to date on Vaccinations - Harness * - Other surprise goodies from Safe Haven - Free office visit to Vet or 50% off any Optimum Wellness Plan - Other coupons from Partners - Available Paperwork: Spay/Neuter records, Vaccination records, Vet records, Micro records, Recommendation list, etc... - Continued Support: Safe Haven will be there for the lifetime of your new adopted pet. If you ever have questions or concerns, we will always be there to help. Our goal is for you & your pet to live happily ever after! * Safe Haven STRONGLY believes that collars should only be used as decoration. A dog can slip out of collar. Which becomes a problem if your dog gets lost, or you are trying to restrain your dog, & it comes off. Also, attaching a leash to a collar puts pressure on the neck, which is one of the most sensitive areas of the body, & could hurt them. For these reasons, Safe Haven includes a harness with every dog adoption to ensure the safety of the dog, as a harness is more expensive than a collar & some adopters will not buy them for this reason. A harness distributes the weight on the chest & shoulders. It (Less) Adoption Fee: $45 Animal Location:
