***SAFE 08/30/16***EAR- TIPPED SHEEP WILL NEED A MIRACLE AND A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO SAVE HIM! The 1 year old SHEEP was brought in as a STRAY. Now his ear is tipped, HOWEVER, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s feral. He’s not NEUTERED but vets will ear tip after SPAY/NEUTERING. It can also be due to an injury or frostbite. But whatever the case may be, we do know this… SHEEP is scared and needs the aid of a New Hope rescue and YOU! Contact a New Hope rescue and offer to take this guy in…some of the greatest pets ever were supposedly”feral”… just a little something to keep in mind!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sheep came into the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Sheep was hiding in the back of the carrier. Reaction to assessor: Sheep continued to hide when approached with tense body language and flat ears. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sheep attempted to retreat further into his cage and was still tense. Reaction to cage door opening: Sheep attempted to retreat further into his cage, becomes stiff, alert and lip licks. Reaction to touch: Sheep moved to avoid touch and began to hiss and growl at the assessor. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Sheep is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. Sheep 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.
