Due her current medical condition/health status, Puddles is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. The behavior department believes Puddles 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 Puddles to new and unfamiliar situations.
