**SAFER: EXPERIENCED HOME, NO CHILDREN**
Marina previously lived with 2 adults, and has been exposed to children. According to the owner Marina was said to be weary of strangers and needs time to warm up to them. She was also reported to be very protective of her owner and the owner stated she will lunge, bark and growl when approaching her owner or territory. Marina lived with 3 other dogs which she was tolerant of, but at time she has been reported to bark and growl at them. It was also noted that Marina does not do well with cats. Marina was said to be wee-wee pad trained, and has not had any accidents in the home.
At intake Marina was reported to be intolerant of handling, and was not receptive to introductions from the Counselor. During SAFER Marina was extremely fearful and needed a very slow approach. She was fearful during the handling items, and became stiff and uncomfortable during the paw handling. Marina was unresponsive to the assessor during the tag interaction, and did not show any interest in any of the resource items. Due to the fearful behaviors seen during SAFER as well as the information provided by the previous owner, the department feels Marina would be best suited for an experienced adopter with no children.
