11/07/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Willie has shown great improvement since her stay with us and has seem to overcome her fearful behavior. She is now more social and a bit more attention seeking when interacting with staff. Due to this behavior improvement the behavior department believes that Willie can go home with an average adopter. Safer:10/24 Willie previously lived 6 adults and 1 small child and a small dog. The owner stated Willie is reported to be very tolerant of small children and the small dog that is in the home likes to play with Willie but he prefers not to be bothered.

Willie follows the handler fearful with his body low during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Willie was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Willie has been showing fearful behavior, we cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Willie is more comfortable and settled in a home environment.
