Upon intake Kodiak was nervous and tense. Kodiak was timid when touched. Kodiak scanned negative for a microchip and allowed handling when approached slowly.
SAFER; EXPERIENCED HOME
Kodiak came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake Kodiak was nervous and tense; he allowed all handling when approached slowly. During SAFER Kodiak came into the assessment room shy and fearful, he was not interested with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Kodiak was fearful and unresponsive during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Kodiak was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Kodiak is nervous throughout the assessment and has a crouched body posture. The behavior department advises that future adopters should be able to provide positive experiences for Kodiak. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Kodiak be given the opportunity to interact at her own pace, so the behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter.
