RECOMMENDATIONS: NHO __No young children (under 5) _X_No children (under 13) __No cats __Single-pet home __Recommend no dog parks _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.
