Behavior during Intake: Rocky was reported to be relaxed and allowed all handling.
During SAFER Rocky came into the assessment room calm and friendly, he had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Rocky was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Rocky was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Rocky appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
