To Be Destroyed Oct 26 Manhattan #NY
Hello, my name is Duke. My animal id is #10318. I am 8 years old.
Duke is at risk for his medical condition, including #glaucoma and luxating patellas. Behaviorally, Duke has been timid with his caretakers but tolerant of handling with a slow approach, though when highly stressed he will escalate to a warning (snapping). Due to his fear and timidity we recommend an adult-only home for Duke and $adopters who will allow him to warm up to his new home and new family at his own pace.
Assessment: buphthalmos OS w/ hyphema, neg menace, avisual OS; Grade 3/4 MPLs bilat Prognosis: fair Plan: Tonometry OS tomorrow- rec possible enucleation vs. topical ophth therapy based on findings
Summary:: Duke did not approached the assessor in the assessment room. He stood still, trembling, and allowed the assessor to approach him. He had a tense, trembling body throughout and did not move from where he was standing. He allowed all handling.
Off Leash Summary Duke allows greeting, otherwise keeps to himself.
#Duke keeps mostly to himself. 10/25: Duke approaches to greet other calm dogs.
Duke had his tail between his #legs. He lunged and snapped at the counselor.
