DOGID: 2227
Name: Early
Location: Burr Ridge, IL
Age: 1.5
Color: Deadgrass
Sex: male
Weight: 107
Neutered? yes
Vaccines:
  • Rabies
  • DHLPP
  • Heartworm Preventative
Heartworm Negative? Yes
Health Conditions: 4/30/2012: Early is being treated for ehrlichiosis. He has gone thru one course of meds, but was still testing positive so he's on his second course now. 11/2/2012: Early still tested positive for ehrlichiosis using the SNAP test so we ran a RealPCR test to tell us if the bacteria was still present. He does have the antibodies for ehrlichiosis, which is what caused the reaction in the SNAP test, but he no longer has the ehrlichiosis bacteria.
Housetrained? yes
Dog surrendered to Rescue because: Turned over by shelter
Other Reason:
Good With:
Dog Likes:
Working Ability:
Working Comments: Early has had very little training or socialization. We're working on basic obedience, but the most pressing need is to get Early out into the world so he doesn't think anybody or anything strange to him is a threat.
Behavioral Problems:
Other Behavioral Problems:
Bitten? No
Bite Explanation:
Commands known:
  • Sit
  • Come
Tricks: Early knows the command "sit", but he doesn't realize yet that a command is not the same as a request. He's learning.
Other Info: We are still getting to know Early. He was very shy and frightened when he first arrived at his foster home, but we're taking it slow and he's coming out of his shell. He's already gained five pounds and, with time, we expect him to be a slightly larger than standard adult male Chesapeake. Please check back for updates. UPDATE 11/9/2011: Early has been neutered and is recovering nicely. He is starting to settle in and is now at the point where he believes he must snark at anybody coming in the house, other than his Foster Dad. Eventually, he will learn that snarking at the dog walker doesn't earn you any gold stars. Once Early has his stitches removed, his Foster Dad is going to start taking him out into the world so as to expand Early's horizons and he can start becoming a confident, good boy around strangers. 4/30/2012: Early is getting better around strangers, but he still can't be trusted to meet someone new in an appropriate manner and must be on lead or in his crate. Once he's determined that the person isn't a threat, then he's just fine with them. He continues to grow and, hopefully, is close to his adult weight. Once he is able to get some off-lead exercise and starts to put on muscle mass, he's going to be a rather large Chesapeake. UPDATE 11/01/12: Early is doing MUCH better around strangers. He is still very protective in the house, but in the yard or out in the public on errands he no longer reacts negatively to strangers.
