11/09/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/09/16 13:58 Tumbleweed was found as a stray in an abandoned building. When his finder tried to catch him, he ran and attempted to bite. During intake, Tumbleweed was quiet inside his carrier. When he carrier was opened, he walked into the corner furthest away from counselor. He was able to be scanned for microchip, but growled. Tumbleweed also growled when counselor attempted to pet, so counselor did not attempt to take him out of carrier for collaring and pictures in order to give him time to calm down.
