KIRK – A1031315
*** KIRK WAS BROUGHT INTO THE SHELTER AS A STRAY AND HE IS IN NEED OF A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT! *** KIRK was found as a stray and may be a lost or abandoned pet. He is 2 years old and was very stressed at being brought in. He did allow some interaction and petting on his behavior assessment and got an EXPNOCHILD rating as he may need some time to decompress. We have no other background info on KIRK except that he is about 2 years old and will be another ACC statistic tomorrow afternoon if someone doesn’t step up for him tonight. KIRK only needs a place to call home and chill out and if you can give that to him hie will be your new best friend. Contact a rescue now to pull him to safety.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Kirk was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer .I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way. Although he was tense no fractious behavior was display.
