BOOTS – A1045397
*** GONE 07/29/15 *** BOOTS IS A GUY IS SEARCH OF A HOME…He had one for two weeks but the finder ended up bringing him to the ACC. So poor BOOTS thought he had it made after being out on his own only to find himself tossed from another home. Is his NEW HOPE rating a surprise then?

07/28/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Boots was yowling and growling upon approach. He hisses and starts to yowl louder when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Boots hisses and charges by the cage front. Reaction to touch: Boots does not allow touch; he hisses, charges, spits, and swats at the assessor’s hand. Note: Boots was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder has kept him in their home for 2 weeks. They report that he is receptive to petting, but may attempt to bite unpredictably. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Boots is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, bite, 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.
