Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for his stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. Please review the full owner surrender profile for information on Bori’s behavior in his previous home as a guideline. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/21/16 During his initial medical examination, Bori appeared tense and nervous, though allowed some handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Bori has tolerated minimal handling from people; He shows some interest in interacting with humans, but becomes uncomfortable appears to become frantic upon any form of approach. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner will best set him up to succeed.) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Due to the fear/avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Bori and feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Bori as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression.)
