SAFER: EXPERIENCE HOME NO KIDS
Shelly came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. It was reported Shelly was calmly, friendly and affectionate upon intake. During SAFER Shelly came into the assessment room with high energy and loose and wiggly with her mouth open, she was friendly and social towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Jersey was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment on food item Shelly freezes and growls, toy item she takes away body tense and growls and rawhide item she shows no interest. Due to some behavioral concerns with resource guarding the behavior department feels Shelly can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children.
