Reaction to touch: Shakira began to slowly retreat away from the assessor’s hand then hisses and attempts to nip. Placement determination: NH ONLY Shakira is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
