BOLT – A1078307
Gone - 6-26-2016 Brooklyn
GONE 06/26/16 **NEEDS A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO PULL****NEEDS ALL THE HELP HE CAN GET**** Poor Bolt, life is not how he thought it was going to be. Bolt is a 2 year old boy that was brought in as a stray so not much is known about him. What we do know is that he is very nervous and tense. To say that he did not do well on his evaluation would be an understatement. Sugar coating will not help this situation, Bolt needs someone who will work with him, give him boundaries, do the work his previous owner failed to do. This is doable, it is not impossible. Bolt has a lot of competition tonight, and the “difficult” ones are the first to go. Give Bolt a chance, help him live to see another day. Bolt will need to be pulled by a New Hope Rescue so he can receive the proper training and care. Share him before it is too late

06/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bolt pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the first part of the assessment with a calm and relaxed body language. Bolt during the tag interaction he was a bit fearful with his tail tucked, and trying to exit room. He became stiff and uncomfortable during paw handling trying to bite the assessor hand. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Bolt was not interested in toys. Bolt shows some concerning behavior when the handler tried to safely placed him back in his kennel. He started to grab at the leash and snapping at the handler. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
