Soleil was brought into the care center by the police. Soleil was friendly with one officer allow him to pet her and kept her head in his lap. She allowed the counselor to scan her while the officer pet him. When the officers were leaving, Soleil was pulling and would not walk with the counselor. When in the office, Soleil would hide under the desk. When pet, she would tense up. When the counselor attempted to remove her collar, she turned and placed her mouth on the counselor’s hand. During a second attempt, she backed up and showed her teeth. When attempt to collar, she backed up. She was not handled any further.
SAFER: NEW HOPE ONLY
Soleil came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Soleil was fearful and nervous towards the counselor, Soleil backed up and bared her teeth on the second attempt when trying to collar her, and no other handling was conducted at this time. During SAFER Soleil came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, she was social and attention seeking towards the assessor, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Soleil tried to bite at the assessor on paw squeeze item. During the resources portion of the assessment food, toy and rawhide items she freezes and growls when attempting to remove the item away. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
