London was nervous upon entering SAFER assessment room, focused on handler and hiding behind handlers legs, requiring a significant amount of time to approach assessor and sniff lightly. Due to London’s discomfort with any up close handling, all tactile portions of the SAFER assessment were skipped. He showed minimal interest in Toy, sniffing before turning away. London approached the helper dog, investigated and then turned away. London must be placed with a New Hope partner. He may benefit initially from a calm, quiet, structured environment.
