06/16/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Sashimi A1115161 is at risk for a New Hope Only behavior determination. She has been timid since intake and avoids interaction by moving away and by growling. She gives appropriate warnings but has not warmed up even with playgroup and social sessions with her human caretakers. We have no known behavioral history and we were unable to complete a handling assessment due to her fear level.

06/13/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/13/17 10:40 Basic information: Sashimi is estimated to be 2 years old she was found as a stray on 6/13/17. Her finders described her as scared. She has no known injuries or health problems. Behavior during intake: When I approached Sashimi in a crate, she had a crouched tense body and growled. I let her smell my leash and she sniffed, looked up with whale eye and backed up. She allowed me to put the leash on her and poked her head out of the crate and then went back in. She came out with some coxing but showed whale eye, her tail was tightly tucked and hackles were raised. She walked on leash without pulling and came when called to. She laid near me in a ball, with ears back while panting. She yawned a few times as well. When I pet her head she looked up with whale eye and licked her lips two times.

A staff member writes: When you meet a nervous or scared dog, do you ever ask yourself, “What happened?” I wonder with Sashimi. Was is it wrong place, wrong time? She was clearly well fed by someone before and knows what it feels like to receive bellyrubs and headrubs. Whoever owned her before must be asking themselves the same thing: “What happened to my girl?” Despite how nervous she is, with the right time and the right approach, she can be someone else’s girl, and will find her way back to her old happy, confident, sassy self. A volunteer writes: Are you there, world? It’s me. Sashimi. I’m small and shy. Talking (woofing) about myself is hard. But I thought you should know a few things. Have you ever seen that movie “An American Tail?” I love that movie because that’s sort of how I feel. Here in New York everything is big, and I feel small. I’ve a warm place to sleep and good food to eat. I have lots of friendly faces that lean down towards my kennel and say my name sweetly just like it’s a song, and offer me more and more delicious things to eat. But I still feel uncertain. I just don’t know who’s friend. And I’m not sure how to tell. I did have such a nice time the other day. I went outside to the bright green grass. Outside with some of the friendly faces, the same people that sing my name. It was a warm day, I was surprised when the sun hit my back, and right then, I felt the water. Water, water, everywhere. Shooting up and out from the ground, flying up in pretty streams. The friendly faces called it a “sprinkler.” And there were other pups there, too. Playing and darting in and out of the drops and no one could stop smiling. Me? I wasn’t quite ready to play or to dart. But I did get close, right near the water where I lapped up each drop with the tip of my tongue and I was so very close to smiling. That day’s been my favorite so far. I try and remember it each night before sleep and when I do, I dream about water. About sun on my back and all the new friendly faces I’ve yet to meet, each one of them singing my name. Those dreams are the best and they’re full of my feeling less small. Full of playing and of smiling. And possibility, most of all.
06/15/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 6/13/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/15/17 Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Sashimi appeared very fearful in the assessment room. When the assessor sat down with her, she began growling and backing away, so the handling portions of the assessment were not conducted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 6/14: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog Sashimi displays low, fearful body language, and avoids approach. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Sashimi was in a crate and she had a crouched tense body and growled. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/13/17 During her initial medical exam, Sashimi was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sashimi so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _x_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Sashimi is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: While Sashimi has shown that she will warm up to certain handlers over time, she has remained fearful towards most handlers and will growl and back away. The behavior department recommends Sahimi be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Sashimi to acclimate comfortably to her new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Sashimi to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Sashimi presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Sashimi is very fearful at the care center and has allowed handling only from a few handlers. She will growl and back away when uncomfortable. It is important to always go slow and give Sashimi the option to walk away from any social interaction. Sashimi should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Sashimi’s choice to approach a new person or thing.
