Finn came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Finn was nervous and trembling, she allowed all handling. During SAFER Finn came into the assessment room nervous and trembling, she was very fearful and wasn’t interested with the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Finn was fearful and unresponsive during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Finn was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Finn 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 Finn is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Finn be given the opportunity to interact at her own pace. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter.
