Reaction to assessor: Avery is sleeping on first approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Avery remains asleep. Reaction to cage door opening: Avery wakes up, becomes stiff and alert, and retreats to the back of the cage. Reaction to touch: Avery growls, hisses and spits, and swats at the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Avery is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, 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.
