Summary: Elmont came into the assessment room calm and quiet, he was a bit social but un-bothered. Elmont received a partial SAFER due to illness. He allowed some handling but towards the end he would just lay down on the floor quietly. He showed no concerns or aggression towards the handlers just stayed to himself. It was a bit difficult to get an accurate read due to his weakness.
