Asiago was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home.
Sitting upright in back of kennel, tail wrapped around body. He flinches and backs away as I reach forward, then retreats through his portal with his tail down. He pokes his head back through his portal and comes forward for treats. He comes forward, body and tail low, and head-butts my hand strongly before backing away again. He allows petting along his head and body while leaning in abruptly, then dropping his tail down and wrapping it around his body. At front of kennel rubbing his face all over my hand by the end of the session. Curious but unsure and skittish. Very sweet once interacted with. Has potential to warm up!
Lying in back of kennel, eyes alert and ears forward. Makes eye contact and sits up as the cage door opens. Heâ€™s tenses slightly until I reach over to him, then he begins leaning in with enthusiasm once touched. He stands up to come forward, tail raised, then retreats through his portal with a relaxed body. Unsure but curious â€“ wants to create distance but appreciates attention. Allows further petting while leaning and coming forward. Loves treats. Very sweet, showing improvement daily.
Cage is recently cleaned

Reaction to touch:
Asiago seems unsure of contact when approached, but slowly starts to warm up with attention. His body perks up, tail rises and he gently nudges the assessor’s hand for attention.

Asiago was a bit tense when picked up, got antsy and leaped back into the kennel.
