Sky came into the shelter as a stray on 7/12/16, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake it was reported Sky allowed all handling. During SAFER Sky came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, soft body posture when interacting with the assessor, she allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Sky was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Sky was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Sky appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
