A Staff member writes: This little guy is definitely getting a lot of interest from adopters, but he’s feeling a bit anxious. Feedback from Mick’s foster indicates that he suffers from separation anxiety and needs training before he’ll be ready to find his forever home. Please help set him up for success!
Mick came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake Mick was calm and quiet and allowed all handling. During SAFER Mick came into the assessment room calm and a bit shy, he was a bit social towards the assessor, look and sensitivity item he was fearful with tense body language, during tag-interaction Mick was fearful with his body low. When the first paw squeeze was attempted he quickly pulled back his paw and on the second paw squeeze he didn’t respond showing no signs of aggression. He showed no interest in any of the resource items. During dog to dog interaction he approached the helper dog with confidence and he was also vocal. Due to some concerns with Mick showing fearful behavior, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Mick be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. So the behavior department feels Mick can be suitable for an experience adopter.
