SAFER: EXPERIENCED HOME
Lina came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake Lina was timid but was tolerant of all handling. During SAFER Lina came into the assessment room calm, she was friendly and attention seeking towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted, during paw squeeze Lina was uncomfortable and moved her paw away from the assessor and flank was applied with no response and tail tucked. Lina was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Lina was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Lina appears to be fearful, timid, so the behavior department feels it’s best Lina can be suitable for an experience adopter.
