RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Jojo’s display of discomfort with some handling, we recommend an adult only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear and avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we believe Jojo may benefit best from placement with a New Hope partner who can assess her behavior further in a home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Jojo needs careful behavior modification and management to prevent future bites. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Jojo as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.
