04/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Jack was calm and relaxed upon approach. When softly spoken to, he comes to the front and tries to sniff the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Jack becomes alert but remains soft. Reaction to touch: Jack became stiff and hesitant of the assessor’s hand. He allows touch, but hisses when touched near his lower back. He swats without nails, nips, and stares at the assessor’s hand. He seems indifferent to touch when trying to pet him again, but would lift his paw up to swat after a little while. Note: Jack was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder was able to pick him up and bring him into the care center. During his initial exam, however, he was difficult to restrain and displayed aggressive behaviors during his initial medical exam. He tolerates little attention from the behavior assessor, but may nip and swat when he becomes uncomfortable. Behavior Determination: NH ONLY Jack 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, scratch, 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.
