Exam Type BEHAVIOR
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Steady VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Skittish, Independent MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/6/17- Subjective: Crouched in a corner of the kennel. Hissed and tried to escape. Removed from kennel with thick gloves and a towel – pt urinated all over the floor as he was removed from the kennel. He was very tense and bit my finger (did not break skin or draw blood) as I examined his face. He then bit (crunched and held) the wooden tongue depressors I used to examine his teeth. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Quincy remains tense body, tucked limbs, head pulled in during the approach. Reaction to cage door opening: Quincy distance increases, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Quincy avoids contact and attempts to escape, no further interactions. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Quincy is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He 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.
