SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Blooregard came to us as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake it was stated Blooregard was relaxed and allowed all handling. During SAFER Blooregard had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Blooregard was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Blooregard was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Blooregard appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
