_X_ Placement with a New Hope partner
_X_ New Hope Only
Matzu is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home.
She has tried to swat staff and assessors and is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling.
Matzu previous owner reports that she hisses, scratches and bites people as well as other animals. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
