SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Sykes came into the shelter as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake it was noted that Sykes appeared to be quiet and calm maintained a relaxed body posture. During SAFER Sykes had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Sykes was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Sykes was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Sykes appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, ears back a bit fearful. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
