06/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department believes that Arlington is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. Arlington has not tolerated handling in the care center. During his medical exam he would lunged and snapped at the technician. In the kennel, Arlington can be seen growling, snarling, lunging and snapping when approaching his kennel. A SAFER assessment will not be conducted due to safety and stress level concerns. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
