Suffer with severe separation anxiety Miss T came to us originally in May of 2022 as an owner surrender because the owner said 'can't take'.�%A0 We do not�%A0 know what that�%A0means except maybe there was a move and the dog could not go with her for some reason.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0 �%A0Whenever we�%A0 have an owner�%A0surrender an animal, we ask that�%A0they�%A0complete a survey to give us as much information about the animal as possible. On Miss T's first survey, there was not much�%A0outstanding; pretty much middle ground on a scale of 2(bad) to 10(great).�%A0 �%A0Her history�%A0with�%A0cats and livestock was unknown. S he�%A0 had been an outside�%A0dog only and was free�%A0to roam.�%A0 This�%A0owner�%A0 had Miss T for 1 1/2 years.�%A0 She was 1 1/2-2 years old at this time.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0One of our employees adopted MIss T in May of 2022.�%A0 �%A0She struggled with�%A0 Miss T and her development of separation anxiety revealing itself�%A0 in home destruction.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0 She also struggled herself with�%A0mental illness.�%A0 Her husband worked different shifts and t he�%A0family members who�%A0 helped with sitting for the�%A0children while she worked started restricting the amount of sitting they�%A0would do. She finally gave us her notice at the�%A0end of last year and we were sorry to see�%A0her go because she was a good worker.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0We do not know how important this home life might be to Miss T and her problems or her becoming attached to this employee and feeding off of her anxiety and struggles .Maybe it plays a part in it, maybe not but we feel that�%A0it might be a factor.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0We received a call from law enforcement July 18th about a dog attacking another�%A0dog and ended up at this employee house where we picked Miss T up and took to the�%A0shelter�%A0for 10 days of quarantine. On 8-13, Miss T was surrendered to us by the�%A0employee .She stated that�%A0she could not give the dog what she needed which we think�%A0included prescription medication.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0Miss T has shown signs of anxiety in the shelter by scraping the surface off�%A0her kennel walls.�%A0 We consulted one of her two vets recently and this vet stated that Miss T has been rehomed 4-5 times(we have no record of that), would not do well in a stressful shelter environment on prescription medication and in her opinion, the best decision would be to euthanize�%A0her.�%A0 The�%A0staff has discussed this situation and we were ready to take her to the vet on Friday.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0But the manager went to�%A0her kennel that morning to spend some time with her and she is in it ready to go play with her Kong toy.�%A0 I The decision was made to wait one week.�%A0 We�%A0 have been terribly busy and�%A0 considering other options such as a special rescue, etc. had never been done due to time limits.�%A0 We�%A0 have also not discussed�%A0 her situation�%A0with�%A0another�%A0vet that�%A0has seen this�%A0dog.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0We do not want to wonder in the future if we had done all we could to help her.�%A0 Ifwe feel we have covered all possible options and come up with nothing that will help her with�%A0her anxiety�%A0and give her a good life with a family, then it will be easier to live with the decision to let her go.�%A0 �%A0 �%A0Her most recent owner surrender survey says she can be aggressive with other�%A0dogs, has been okay so far with cats but�%A0does get excited, is great with kids but not with strangers, especially men, can be iffy�%A0with housebreaking due to her anxiety and is not good with being left�%A0alone.�%A0 This owner says she is better free to roam�%A0 with a fenced in yard, breaks out of pens, and does not like to be confined.
