Due her current medical condition/health status, Lexi is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. The behavior department believes Lexi would benefit best from placement with a New Hope Rescue who can meet her needs medically and then assess behavior once she is in a stable environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Lexi to new and unfamiliar situations.
Date of intake: 16-Nov-2017
Date of initial: 17-Nov-2017
Summary: Tries to bite, very fearful
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: NEW HOPE ONLY
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations: Place with a New Hope partner
New Hope Partner: Lexi has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.
