Reaction to touch: Layla slowly points her nose out to sniff the assessor’s hand, but swats and hisses when petting was attempted. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Layla is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home.
