RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner (See bite history; Joeboy may benefit best from placement with a New Hope Rescue group who can further assess his behavior in a home environment.) Potential challenges: _X_House soiling _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Joeboy has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Joeboy easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.) _X_Resource guarding (We cannot be certain whether any guarding or possessive behavior may appear in a home environment, but we recommend adopters comfortable with safe management and modification of guarding behavior in case it does.)
