SAFER: EXPEIRENCED HOME
Boggie came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Boggie came into the assessment room calm and quiet, he was not attention seeking towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Boggie follows but a bit fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Boggie was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Boggie is fearful and can be shy at times. Boggie has been showing fearful behavior. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Boggie is more comfortable and settled in a home environment, so the behavior department feels Boggie can be suitable for an experience adopter.
