Franklin is a shy guy with a handsome silvery-gray coat who’s not doing too well in the shelter environment at the Brooklyn Care Center. He would benefit most from placement with a New Hope partner where he can have time to adjust and relax in a calmer, more stable environment before his behavior can be better assessed.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Timid, tries to flee ENRICHMENT NOTES: 07/06/17 Sitting in center of kennel with a tense body, arms folded beneath him and eyes watching my every movement. He tolerates petting along his head and body while flattening his ears and looking away. Needs more time to adjust. 07/07/17 Volunteers reported he was displaying distance increasing behaviors when cleaning his cage. I took a look at him later on and we was still visibly upset. Crouched in his litter box, ears bend slightly, low growls. Arches his back and continues growling when you approach. Not open to interacting at the moment. I gave him a kuranda bed for some privacy. Sprayed feliway and left him alone. 07/08/17 He was relaxed and resting on his blanket at the back of the cage. He lifts his head up, focuses on the assessor and lip licks when spoken to softly. His ears bend sideways slightly and he slowly looks around the cage when the door opens. He rises up, low growls and strikes when approached. He displays distance increasing behaviors and currently doesn’t allow any contact. He seems very stressed and quickly retreats to the other side of the double kennel. Not open to interacting today. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Talkative CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish RECOMMENDATIONS: Placement with a New Hope partner – Franklin is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at at this time.
