Tiberius ("Tibbie") was dropped off at the Berkeley Animal Shelter by someone who “found him” and observed him having multiple seizures. The shelter observed one seizure, but there could have been more, unobserved. The shelter asked us to consider taking him as a “medical” rescue.
In his “intake foster home” no seizures were observed, then when he was transferred to his regular foster home, the seizures returned. Our vet started him on medication and since then there have been no obvious seizures, but some occasional “staring into space” incidents. The current seizure medication is about $20 a month.
At this time, no cause for the seizures has been determined. There are no signs of systemic disease, but a neurological work-up with an MRI or CT scan would need to be done to rule out a brain tumor.
Otherwise, Tibbie is a sweet little guy who loves everyone (his fosters, strangers, other dogs, cats, etc.) He has been known to bully a larger dog on occasion.
He is a very confident dog and needs to be in a home that is excellent at being in charge. If Tibbie rules the roost is not a good environment for the people or him.
