11/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Otomi was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She allowed the counselor to take her out of the box during intake and conduct some handling, but displayed distance-increasing behaviors when attempting to place her into a different carrier. The medical team reports she was nervous during her initial medical exam, hissing and growling. Reaction to assessor: Otomi was pressed against the back wall, facing the side of his kennel and had a low body posture. Reaction when softly spoken to: Otomi turns to face the assessor and blinks softly, tense. Reaction to cage door opening: Otomi focuses on the assessor and becomes stiff and alert, hissing and growling. Reaction to touch: Otomi does not allow touch; she hisses and strikes at the assessor’s hand. She presses up against the back after and lip licks and blinks. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Otomi is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
