Safe - 4-29-2016 Brooklyn
*** SAFE 04/29/16*** AN “ANGEL” SHOULDN’T HAVE TO GO THRU HELL!! But that’s exactly what’s happening to ANGEL tonight!! Her former people have jettisoned her for some incident which is unknown. They also never bothered to spay her or it appears spend a lot of time with her. ANGEL is a bit on the defensive side and one can only deduce that there were actions in the home that made her feel that way…..CAN WE GET A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN FOR ANGEL TONIGHT?? This is a lovely little girl who needs some time, patience, TLC and a RESPECTFUL environment!! ANGEL is NEW HOPE rated only. Please contact a NEW HOPE rescue if you are interested in FOSTERING or ADOPTING. If you need assistance, please email us at [email protected] We would love to see a “heavenly” pull for ANGEL tonight!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Angel has lived with 2 adults, 2 children and 2 teenagers. Angel has been introduced to a dog in the home and would swat and hiss in defense. When strangers come over she may greet them by rubbing against their ankles or possibly swat at them in defense. She enjoys play with ball toys and likes to play swat. Angel has been monitored by the enrichment facilitator and reports that when she first arrived she would swat, bite and allowed no contact. Slowly she has warmed up and will solicit attention but still gets agitated and could lash out. Reaction to assessor: Angel is alert at the back of the kennel and makes contact. Reaction when softly spoken to: Angel is curious leaning forward but doesn’t come to the front. Reaction to cage door opening: Angel meows softly. Reaction to touch: Angel comes forward with eye dilated and focused on the assessor. She sniffs the assessor’s hand, head butts and leans in for attention. She allows petting all over and meows loudly. Angel quickly becomes agitated and will hiss and swat when she’s had enough. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Angel is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She allows petting but quickly becomes agitated and has tried to swat. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time
