Reaction to touch: Maximus sniffs the assessor’s hand, but began to slowly retreat further to the back, hisses, and strikes. Placement determination: NH ONLY Maximus is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is stressed in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting.
