Cash previously lived with adults and has spent time with children ages 5 and up. The owner stated Cash interacts great with the children. The owner mentioned Cash can be nervous around strangers and growl if they approach him to fast. The owner describes Cash as friendly, reserved and relaxed.
At intake it was reported Cash allowed all handling by the owner. During SAFER Cash came into the assessment room shy and nervous, he was social towards the assessor with a slow approach. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Cash was relaxed during the tag interaction, during paw squeeze flank was applied due to Cash being unbalance with his 2 front legs, which he didn’t respond at all. During the resources portion of the assessment Cash was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Cash has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Cash is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Cash be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. The behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter.
