ELVIN – A1046767
***GONE 08/14/15*** Just look at ELVIN’S picture! Is he not the cutest guy you have ever seen? The NEUTERED, 13 years YOUNG male is not happy being stuck in the ACC. While being poked and prodded, who would expect him to be happy? So here’s what we need to do to save ELVIN. Contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE which is a MUST because of his frightened nature.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Elvin becomes stiff and alert upon approach, and slowly retreats to the back of his cage. He focuses on the assessor when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Elvin remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Elvin does not allow touch; he hisses and strikes at the assessor’s hand. He backs away afterwards and lip licks. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Elvin 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 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.
