Health concerns: None
Behavioral concerns: Carlotta is in our trust training program for aggressive biting and cage guarding behavior. Learn more about our trust training methods at https://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/trust-training. So far her foster has done a little bit of getting Carlotta used to her smell and hands by placing her hands in her cage, unmoving. She immediately comes up and starts attacking, starting with hard bites that very quickly get lighter and lighter.
Other notes: Carlotta had a beginning in which she was not handled properly that has caused some guarding and fear aggression behaviors. However, we believe she will come around quickly due to her age, curiosity and obvious progress with biting.
Carlotta found her way to MNPPR because she was a transfer from AHS for aggression towards staff.
Due to our rescue being foster based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. Carlotta’s foster parent prefers to meet at the Quarry Petsmart – 1640 New Brighton Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55413 for meet & greets, & adoptions.
