KYIV (Reuters) – President Volodymyr Zelenskiy presented famous Ukrainian mine-sniffing dog Patron and his owner with a medal on Sunday in recognition of their dedicated service since the invasion of Russia.

The pint-sized Jack Russell terrier has been credited with detecting more than 200 explosives and preventing them from detonating since the war began on February 24, quickly becoming a canine symbol of Ukrainian patriotism.

Zelenskiy presented the award during a press conference in Kyiv with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Boss barked and wagged his tail, causing laughter from the audience. Trudeau patted his pockets like he was looking for a dog treat.

“Today I want to reward those Ukrainian heroes who are already demining our country. And together with our heroes, a wonderful little sapper – Patron – who not only helps to neutralize explosives, but also teaches our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a threat of mines,” Zelenskiy said in a statement after the ceremony.

The prize was also awarded to the owner of Patron, a major of the civil protection service, Myhailo Iliev.

(WSVN) – Life after service can be tough for veterans, but a South Florida university hopes four-legged friends can change that. Kevin Ozebek has tonight’s 7Spotlight.

Lenny and Lena are inseparable.

Lenny Polidor, FAU student: “Honestly, she is a really good dog. She doesn’t bark. She really likes people.

Lenny is a junior at Florida Atlantic University. He adopted Lena through the FAU Canine Veteran Rescue Mission.

FAU Professor Cheryl Krause-Parello: “When I see them together, it’s just that I know I’m doing the right thing.”

Professor Cheryl Krause-Parello launched the program this year.

The goal is to connect veteran students and alumni with dogs in need of forever homes.

Cheryl Krause-Parello: “I saw the benefits of the human-animal bond, and I knew our veteran students might struggle.”

Every day in the United States, an average of 17 veterans commit suicide, but having a canine companion can help combat depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD.

Cheryl Krause-Parello: “He’s someone to take care of. It gives them meaning, and I feel like if we can save a veteran from suicide, we’ve done the job that we need to do.

Prior to enrolling in the FAU, Lenny served in the US Marine Corps.

The transition from a structured life in uniform to that of an independent student was difficult. Lenny suffers from PTSD.

Kevin Ozebek: “Was that the main symptom of PTSD for you? »

Lenny Polidor: “Be careful, adapt – especially to those around you or communicate with others, because a lot of people don’t understand you.

But now that Lenny has Lena, he finds it easier to adjust to civilian life.

Rebecca Pasko: “She looked at me, the tail is excited, she wants to jump.”

Rebecca Pasko is the program trainer.

She is the owner of Happy with Dogs, a Homestead dog training business.

Rebecca is also a Marine Corps veteran.

Rebecca Pasko: “I’m a veteran with PTSD, so I understand that dogs really help me out. I wouldn’t be where I am without my dogs.

Rebecca Pasko (trainer Lena): “She moved on her own with her hand. Perfect! So these are more service dog behaviors to help him when he is out in public.

When Rebecca is in sight, Lena is incredibly obedient.

Rebecca Pasko: “She knows who to do what around.”

When she’s not, Lena is your typical pup, licking and loving everyone in sight.

Every dog ​​in the program is from the Humane Society of Broward County, and you can tell Lena was chosen because she’s as sweet as can be.

Lenny Polidor: “He’s a great dog. I love it.”

When Lenny saw Lena at the Humane Society, it was love at first sight. A few weeks later, this bond is even stronger.

Lenny Polidor: “The sky’s the limit, to be honest. I feel like I could teach him anything, to be honest.

Now, as this veteran battles PTSD, he’s not alone. He has Lena, his cuddle friend.

If you know of someone, a group or a place that we should spotlight, email us at 7spotlight@wsvn.com. We would love to hear from you.

Bufavirus strain detected in Hyderabad dogs by veterinary experts https://twlabradors.com/bufavirus-strain-detected-in-hyderabad-dogs-by-veterinary-experts/ Wed, 04 May 2022 05:43:00 +0000 https://twlabradors.com/bufavirus-strain-detected-in-hyderabad-dogs-by-veterinary-experts/ Hyderabad: The first case of canine bufavirus (CBuV) has been found in numerous puppies and dogs in Hyderabad.

Hyderabad: The first case of canine bufavirus (CBuV) has been found in numerous puppies and dogs in Hyderabad. Veterinary experts from PVNR Telangana State Veterinary University took 186 samples from puppies and dogs during the pandemic and found that CBuV, which causes diarrhea, was present in 4.6% of the samples.

The bufavirus strain (CBuV 407/PVNRTVU/2020 strain) was determined to be of Chinese origin after genome sequencing. The researchers advised to increase epidemic surveillance. It has only been reported in Italy and China so far.

CBuV is a new protoparvovirus that causes gastroenteritis and respiratory problems in dogs. The intestinal prevalence of CBuV was explored by a veterinary university, which sequenced the entire genome of a strain.

Vishweshwar Kumar Ganji, Bhagyalakshmi Buddala, Narasimha Reddy Yella and Kalyani Putty from Veterinary Biotechnology Department submitted a study paper titled “First report of canine bufavirus in India” in the recent edition of the journal “Archives of Virology”.

The current strain discovered in Hyderabad, according to the researchers, is most closely related to the Chinese strains of CBuV as part of the Asian lineage. “This first report on the prevalence of bufavirus in India highlights the need for increased epidemiological surveillance.” Additionally, our research lays the foundation for future research into the epidemiology and genetic diversity of bufaviruses in the United States,” they added.

CBuV was initially discovered in a litter of three five-month-old mixed-breed puppies in Italy in 2016. It was later reported in China in 2019 and 2021. “Canine enteritis is known to be related to CBuV, so that the mechanism is unknown. “We don’t know much about this virus,” the researchers added.

At veterinary hospitals in Hyderabad, researchers took samples of feces from dogs showing symptoms of enteritis. During the pandemic, 186 fecal samples were taken from dogs aged one month to ten years. There were approximately 138 puppies and 48 adult dogs. DNA from the virus was also recovered by the researchers. The extracted DNA was stored at -20°C until needed. To detect bufavirus, experts used real-time PCR tests. Co-infections with various canine enteric viruses such as adenovirus, canine distemper virus, canine coronavirus, canine astrovirus and canine rotavirus were examined in the samples.

CBuV was detected in eight of 186 samples tested by real-time PCR, indicating a prevalence rate of 4.3%. Six of the eight samples are puppies, while the other two are adult dogs with diarrhea.

Other enteric viruses were found in seven of eight bufavirus-positive samples, including canine parvovirus and adenovirus. One of the PCR-positive samples was chosen to be amplified and sequenced at Bioserve Private Ltd’s sequencing lab in the city.

For two years, our canine friends have had their lives on their feet as the Covid-19 pandemic imposes restrictions on public events.

But on July 31, Suffolk dogs will finally have their day when the Suffolk Dog Day show, the biggest canine event on the county calendar, returns to Helmingham Hall, with the positive aim of encouraging everyone – whether he either animal or human – to reset, recover and rejuvenate after the difficult time the country has responded to the coronavirus.

A wide variety of events will take place during the day, including a royal costumed procession, breed parades, dynamic dog shows, take-away activities, demonstrations and expert canine advice.

Every penny raised will be donated to charities and community groups across Suffolk and the event has already raised nearly £600,000 and supported over 250 projects across all corners of Suffolk.

The brainchild of Suffolk Dog Day was born over ten years ago when a group of friends wanted to raise money to support the work of the Suffolk Community Foundation, which supports local charities and community groups.

Event manager Laura Ripman said: “This is truly an event by the people of Suffolk, for the people of Suffolk. We want you and your dog to have the best day, because we return in 2022 with all-time favorites and many super exciting new attractions.

“A fantastic family day out for all to enjoy, we can’t wait to get together after all this time and celebrate the love, happiness and camaraderie our four legged friends bring to our lives.”

Dog day is part of the Festival of Suffolk, a series of events held across the county between May and October and organized to coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Tim Holder, public affairs manager at the Suffolk Community Foundation, said: “It has been a long wait for Suffolk Dog Day fans to see this incredibly beloved event get back up and running. We promise a truly uplifting and confidence-boosting celebration of the “royal right”. »

Mr Cooper said: ‘The original idea was that a few volunteers would put on a small dog show for the people of Helmingham. Here we are, just over a decade later and #PawPower has helped support so much great work in Suffolk.

“He has fed families through food banks, eased the loneliness of the elderly, supported those struggling with addiction, experiencing domestic violence or sexual abuse, the list of great works supported continues to grow each year.”

SPCA calls on BC Veterinary College to ban ‘unethical’ dog debarking surgery https://twlabradors.com/spca-calls-on-bc-veterinary-college-to-ban-unethical-dog-debarking-surgery/ Wed, 27 Apr 2022 22:02:55 +0000 https://twlabradors.com/spca-calls-on-bc-veterinary-college-to-ban-unethical-dog-debarking-surgery/ The BC SPCA is urging the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia to ban dog debarking surgery.

The BC SPCA is urging the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia to ban dog debarking surgery.

The operation, also known as canine devocalization, involves removing a dog’s vocal cords to muffle or eliminate barking. The BC SPCA has opposed the procedure since the 1990s.

“Barking is normal canine behavior,” senior animal health officer Dr. Emilia Gordon said in a statement earlier this month. “Devocalization deprives dogs of an important form of communication.

“A CVBC decision to make canine devocalization an unethical practice in veterinary medicine would be a significant step forward in the humane treatment of animals in British Columbia”

Gordon said the procedure caused dogs significant stress without suppressing their urge to bark. They may regain their ability to bark over time, making surgery unnecessary, she added.

The story continues under the ad

Complications from dog debarking surgery range from short-term bleeding and infection to long-term effects like chronic coughing and respiratory distress, according to the BC SPCA.

Alberta and Nova Scotia have banned the practice, along with several US states, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

The College of Veterinarians of British Columbia (CVBC) banned the ear cropping and tail docking of dogs in 2016, and the declawing of cats in 2018. In an emailed statement, Registrar and CEO Megan Bergman said the college “recognizes the importance” of considering changes to animal welfare standards and regulations, but did not respond directly to the BC SPCA’s petition.

In order to make a change, Bergman said the CVBC Council needs to look into the matter, scour available information and literature on the subject, and undertake consultation with registrants and stakeholders, including the SPCA and the Society of British Columbia Veterinarians.

The story continues under the ad

“As this process is in the early stages of Board discussion, we are unable to comment, and we look forward to working collaboratively to review canine devocalisation,” she wrote.

The CVBC council will meet on April 29. It’s unclear if debarking surgery is on the cards.

Salisbury dog ​​daycare owner denies animal cruelty charges | News https://twlabradors.com/salisbury-dog-daycare-owner-denies-animal-cruelty-charges-news/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 21:15:00 +0000 https://twlabradors.com/salisbury-dog-daycare-owner-denies-animal-cruelty-charges-news/ SALISBURY — Seacoast Canine owner Jennifer Ford on Friday denied animal cruelty charges, writing in an email to customers that at “no time” did she abuse or harm any dogs. “My love for dogs and other animals knows no boundaries and I would never do anything to abuse or mistreat them,” she wrote in her […]]]>

SALISBURY — Seacoast Canine owner Jennifer Ford on Friday denied animal cruelty charges, writing in an email to customers that at “no time” did she abuse or harm any dogs.

“My love for dogs and other animals knows no boundaries and I would never do anything to abuse or mistreat them,” she wrote in her email.

Ford, 34, of Byield, was arraigned in Newburyport District Court on April 15 on three counts of animal cruelty. Judge Peter Doyle found her dangerous to society or her alleged victims, but released her on $5,000 cash bail with several conditions.

Conditions include staying at least 100 feet away from working/working animals; not work with or own any animals other than those she currently owns (three dogs, two cats, six goats, four alpacas, and chickens); allow law enforcement, animal control and/or the MSPCA at the property to enforce the court order; do not mistreat any animal; and stay away from and have no direct or indirect contact with witnesses, except for written communications on employment/business matters.

Seacoast Canine has two locations, one in Salisbury and another in Byfield.

Acting on an animal abuse report from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Salisbury Police opened an investigation which uncovered three separate alleged incidents dating back to 2021.

Since his arrest, video released by television news shows Ford repeatedly kicking a dog in the stomach. In another video, Ford grabs a dog by the neck and throws it into a kennel.

“Some of you may have seen these videos. But whether you have seen them or not, please know that the videos lack any context that would allow a viewer to understand what the incidents entail,” Ford wrote in his E-mail. “While I cannot go into specifics due to my ongoing court case, I can generally say that when these incidents occur they can escalate within seconds. The actions I have taken which are described in the videos were only intended to defuse the situations.”

Ford went on to write that she is “dedicated to providing the highest level of dog care and training.”

Although the court orders prohibit Ford from setting foot in its dog daycare facilities while awaiting trial, there is no wording ordering the businesses to close.

A Fairfield police K-9 was bitten and stabbed Wednesday by a man who broke into the home of an elderly victim, officials said.

The incident took place around 2 p.m., at a residence in the 1700 block of Elm Street.

Police said the suspect entered the house and the elderly occupant safely exited and then called police.

Meanwhile, an Amazon worker making a delivery in the neighborhood also called police, reporting that during an encounter the suspect threatened to kill him and take his delivery truck.

The suspect was not known to the victims.

Officers responded and saw a man running inside the victim’s home. They attempted to contact the suspect multiple times and get him to leave the accommodation, officials said, to no avail. After also deploying de-escalation techniques and tools, officers entered the residence.

K-9 Cort also walked in and made contact with the suspect, who allegedly bit the dog in the face and stabbed him in the left side.

The suspect, later identified as Kurt Dasilva, 44 (his city of residence was not specified), is believed to be under the influence of drugs.

Dasilva was arrested, treated at a local hospital, and jailed in Solano County Jail on suspicion of numerous felony charges.

Cort was treated at the University of California, Davis veterinary hospital and is recovering at home with his handler, Michael Peña.

This isn’t the first time Cort has been injured on duty.

In January 2019, he was stabbed multiple times while cornering a suspect in an arson/attempted murder case in Vacaville. In this case, Nathaniel Holland, who lived in the house with his girlfriend and six children, allegedly stabbed the woman and her 16-year-old daughter before setting the house on fire with the whole family still inside.

In February 2020, the pup located the suspect during a brutal attack in Cordelia and suffered a severe cut on his paw. Adam Perez, who allegedly severely beat a woman in a house the night before, was still there the next day when his family arrived to collect his belongings. After a standoff that lasted nearly six hours, Cort was deployed and found the suspect hiding in a commercial cooler in the garage.

Eight-week-old NEADS World Class Service Dogs puppies may look like your average frisky Labrador, but these adorables serve an important purpose. Dogs will have careers helping people with special physical, neurological and psychological needs through their daily lives.

They do, however, need proper training. Massachusetts-based NEADS is growing and needs volunteer puppy raisers ASAP. The nonprofit wants to recruit Connecticut residents to bring the playful puppies home and spend 12 to 16 months developing them into disciplined pets.

“Those we serve first are people with physical disabilities, in wheelchairs, using a cane. … The second [are] hard of hearing people. The third are autistic children. The last ones are veterans who suffer from PTSD,” said Domenic Cornacchioli, who manages canine operations at NEADS.

The next 30 or so puppies leave their mothers and littermates in late April and May. We need people in Hartford, New London, Middlesex and Windham counties who have the time to spend with puppies, the desire to help those in need and the strength to let their little friends go once they it’s time to move on.

Rachel Gould loves the “cuddle nuggets” she raised and trained. But she had no trouble saying goodbye to them when they were ready to leave her home in Belmont, Massachusetts, for the more advanced training at another NEADS site.

“These are not dogs you could leave at home and they hang around like a pet. They want intellectual stimulation. They want to go out and help people,” Gould said. “It’s like sending kids to college. You miss them, you love them, you are proud of them, but you can’t wait to see what they do.

One man who has benefited from the NEADS assistance dog program is Mike Delisle from Colchester. In 2016, Delisle was doing what he loved to do since he was 18: racing dirt bikes on the amateur circuit. During a race at Sterling, he flew over the handlebars on the last lap. He broke two vertebrae in his neck.

Now 31, Delisle is a quadriplegic, with no mobility in his legs and very limited mobility in his arms and hands. He lives with his parents, Bob and Denise Delisle, and Henry, a NEADS-trained yellow lab. Since Henry moved in in 2019, he’s been next to Delisle’s wheelchair wherever he goes.

“He’s been everywhere with me, Red Sox games, Boston Bruins games, Hartford Wolf Pack games, concerts, Florida, New York, restaurants, Epcot,” Delisle said. “He is well known at the casino. He stares at one of their police dogs every time we go.

Henry opens and closes doors, turns lights on and off, retrieves dropped off Amazon packages, picks up items Delisle can’t get or has dropped.

“I have a hobby: building small RC cars. He can take a 3 millimeter screw and throw it so it lands in my lap,” Delisle said. “He can take a credit card, a penny.

“When I go out alone, I don’t have to worry about dropping anything. Especially now with COVID, I don’t want to report people on the street to help me. And [Henry] don’t sigh or roll his eyes the 50th time he picks up my cell phone for me.

Besides being his constant companion and assistant, Henry also changed Delisle’s life in other ways.

“When I had Henry, two important things changed. He gave me purpose. I had worked full time since I was 16 or 17. I went from employed to unemployed. and I haven’t left the house. What do I do every day? Now I can’t stay in bed. I have to pull myself together so he has a good day,” Delisle said.

“Also, in public, you see me more in a crowd. Sometimes people walk past a guy in a wheelchair if they’re on the phone. But everyone sees a dog. Everyone will stop for a dog. I no longer have to navigate through thick crowds. At Epcot, the crowd opened up for me.

Each recipient of a NEADS dog is invited to raise $8,000 for NEADS to offset the cost of approximately $45,000 to acquire, breed, train and pair a dog. NEADS advisors help grantees raise funds. Delisle achieved his goal in just a few days.

NEADS has trained more than 1,900 assistance dogs since its inception in 1976. Approximately 400 NEADS assistance dogs are currently active nationwide.

Puppies start training when they are only a few days old. At eight weeks, they are ready to move into the breeders’ homes. Once a breeder is approved, NEADS pays for everything: the puppy, vet visits, food, treats, a crate, leashes, the “service dog in training” cape that the dog wears in audience and the nice leader, an important training tool. Some breeders splurge on a few fun items, like toys and other treats.

Once the pup has moved into the home, training becomes part of everyday life, reinforced by weekly virtual visits with a professional NEADS puppy trainer.

“We break it down by week. They teach them up to 24 different commands,” Cornacchioli said.

Socialization is just as important. Breeders need to take dogs to gathering places often, from places that are a bit busy to places that are very busy or even very noisy, like Delisle’s trips to Fenway Park. The Americans with Disabilities Act allows service dogs to go places non-service dogs cannot go.

“We want these dogs to feel comfortable and confident no matter what environment they are in. … If there are loud noises in the background, commotion, that’s okay. We want them to be exposed to everything, people, animals, the whole gauntlet of things,” he said. “Start with the library. Then progress to the supermarket. Then proceed to Home Depot. Then head to the train station.

However, certain socializations are prohibited. Dog parks are particularly damaging, Cornacchioli said.

“Usually dogs in dog parks are off leash and do what they want. It’s not a controlled environment. Dogs can be aggressive. … If our dogs are exposed to it or become victims of it, you can’t not train them. They will never be OK. They will never recover, “he said. Cornacchioli added that dogs in dog parks could have illnesses and that puppies, who may not have -have not yet received all their vaccinations, could catch something dangerous.

Many types of families are ideal candidates to be breeders: retired people, people who work at home, people who work away from home, people with children, people with pets.

“We have dogs with teachers in the classrooms five days a week. We have dogs in the office,” Cornacchioli said.

Gould Takes His Puppies to Work: “I’m a high school teacher. The students are super helpful. My husband and my principal were fine with that.

Breeders with children and dogs need to ensure that they can meet everyone’s needs and that their pets are good mentors for the puppies. “Children’s exposure to a dog is great and welcome. But can the person handle having a puppy and kids? If they’re young kids, newborns, that’s a lot Can they balance the newborn and the dog?, says Cornacchioli.

Bob Bradford of Bedford, Massachusetts, a former dog owner, is raising his first NEADS puppy. He enjoyed the challenge of teaching his NEADS dog, Claudette, the commands that would make her useful.

“There are the basic commands, ‘sit’ and ‘stay’, and there are others, like ‘under’. You teach them to sit under a table in a restaurant or on a bus so that “She doesn’t get in the way of the audience walking down the aisle. You teach them ‘behind,’ for when you’re walking down a narrow aisle,” Bradford said.

“When you say ‘talk’, it’s not just a frame. It’s three consecutive barks, woof woof woof. It’s to get a neighbor’s attention if someone needs help. If the neighbor hears three barks in quick succession, he knows something is up.

For all the helpfulness of dogs in essential tasks, their human companions also enjoy company, as they get both an assistant and a devoted pet.

At Delisle, Henry has two moods. When his nice leader is on, he knows he is working and doing what he is told and nothing else. When the nice leader is gone, he’s a lively rascal, picking up his stuffed duck and showing it to anyone who comes to visit. “He’s just a joy,” said Bob Delisle.

Regardless of the time of day, however, Henry’s primary focus is Mike Delisle. He sleeps in his room and spends all day, every day by his side.

“He goes everywhere with me. He’s an extension of me,” Delisle said. “If someone invites me somewhere and says don’t bring the dog, I probably won’t go.”
