While attempting to collar, Noti became stiff, whale eyed, and growled; Noti is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. PLAYGROUP: 11/2: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Noti is tense bodied when approach, and actively avoids the greeter dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/02/16 During his initial medical examination, Noti appeared tense and struggled with being handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Noti would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Noti has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling. Noti 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.)
