Binky came into the shelter as a stray on 7/12/16, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake it was reported Binky allowed all handling. During SAFER Binky came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, soft body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Binky was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Binky was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Binky appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
