Post-adoption scholarship sponsored by Pedigree Foundation. The scholarship is for a complimentary training session with a certified dog trainer.
History: Charlie Brown came to us from a shelter in Central Valley. He was adopted into a home with multiple small kids and because he can get jumpy and mouthy when excited, he was overwhelming the kids and he was returned.
Dog Skills: Charlie Brown is social with other dogs and was participating in low-key playgroups at previous shelter.
Cat Skills: Charlie Brown will try to chase a cat if opportunity presents itself.
Leash Skills: Charlie Brown is learning loose leash walking and does very well just slowly trotting alongside his human. He loves to go on walks where he is allowed to take in all the sights and smells.
Medical: Prone to developing skin masses.
This dog arrived at HSSV with multiple skin masses. The largest masses were surgically removed from his inguinal area and near his prepuce. The tissue was sent to a veterinary pathologist for analysis and found to be a benign cancer.This type of cancer has a low risk of spreading elsewhere in the body but is very much prone to recurrence locally.
His tumors were removed completely.
The adopting family is advised to have this dog's skin monitored by their family veterinarian on a SEMI-ANNUAL basis.
