RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Big Man has been observed to display defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Big Man easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
