SAFER: EXPERIENCED HOME, NO CHILDREN
Trust came to us as a stray on 11/11/15. Trust was a bit nervous when entering the behavior room, but was receptive to an initial interaction. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items, but did become very tense and stiff during some of these tests. On the look item Trust became very tense with hard eyes when looking the assessor directly in his eyes. He allowed the assessor to run the sensitivity test though maintaining stiff body language, and became very uncomfortable when the assessor passed over the flank region. Trust initially head flipped toward the assessor’s hand when attempting the squeeze test, but due to this response the assessor conducted the flank instead. On the second flank squeeze Trust was a bit tense, but did not respond. The behavior department believes that Trust can go home with an experienced adopter with no children.
