About Mochi

!!! AVAILABLE for Adoption from Foster Care !!! MOCHI FKA JAMIE - A-65838 Mochi's Instagram: @mochi.dapit Photos: Mochi in foster care! - https://photos.app.goo.gl/U17XR7Gkid45saX16 Dog Meets: Jamie and Deku: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpfFVy05HTg Personality: Mochi is an amazing furball! Expect your day to be filled with her special hugs and kisses! She loves pretending to be a lap dog whenever you give her the chance, but she is more than happy chilling out on the rug next to you. She will do whatever it takes to be near her loved ones and loves her walks and saying hi to strangers. She does well on the leash if there aren't any distractions, is totally fine around people, but pulls a bit around other dogs. She knows "sit" and is learning how to do "paw"! Intake Type: (3/12) Stray Weight: 50.4 lbs Medical Observation: (4/26) Vet Check -- From memos under original A#44007402 sounds like Mochi was not doing well behaviorally in adoptive home, showed some aggression towards male owner when on the couch and also towards female owner when resting on her dog bed - possible resource reactivity. Recovering well from pyometra spay, very BAR with loose body language both in kennel and when in exam room here. Very mildly elevated temperature. Behavior Observation: (4/26) Per Vet Staff -- friendly, comes right up in kennel, no concerning behaviors. (4/25) Per Previous Owner -- We noticed she's had the following symptoms that have particularly escalated today: sleeping a lot, panting heavily while in a relaxed state, licking her lips/the air frequently, and diarrhea. We believe these be could be a side affects of the Clavacillin. - Additionally, earlier today, around 3 p.m. Mochi and I were sitting on the couch and she was in and out of sleep. Buddy came home, sat next to her and gave her a new toy. After sitting with her for a few minutes, he attempted pet her and she snarled and snapped at him. He moved away and tried to identify if it was the toy. We took the toy the away and took her on a walk and it seemed to help dissipate the situation and she was able to relax with us on the bed for a while. Later in the evening, all three of us were on the couch again and she began to lock eyes with Buddy and again, starting growling. We tried to coax her off the couch with treats and redirect her to her dog bed, but she either refused to move or would growl at Buddy anytime he got close. We let her be and separated ourselves from her, but later on she was panting very heavily and I went to check on her, she let me pet her head but then snarled and attempted to bite me.

Just recovered from a URI. Vaccinated. Behavior Observation: (5/13) Attempted dog meet with Oreo but began snapping immediately upon introduction. (5/12) Volunteer Day Trip -- Agent S is a very good boy! On our day trip, we went for long walks, ran a bit, shared snacks and enjoyed a beautiful view of the Ben Franklin bridge. I was amazed by how well he does in the car - he mostly just sat and looked out the window and at the end of our date he took a nap (not even once he tried to hop on the front sit!). Quite the sight to see! I noticed that although an independent guy, he does come when called and enjoy pets, head and back scratches as well as some cuddles! He was very polite of people passing by, didn't bark nor was reactive. He was also very, very interested in other dogs and wanted to say hi very badly. He does need to work on his leash manners as he's a very strong guy, but I bet that if he gets regular exercise it'll get better naturally. Agent S would be a great buddy for someone active, who enjoys running and being active/outside. He seems to be quite an adventurous guy and would probably love going on hikes where he gets to explore and sniff all of the smells too! He was also not very food motivated but did take treats very gently. (4/21) Per Staff -- Easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Pulls through shelter and out to yard. In yard, initially fairly aloof as he runs laps around perimeter. Does return to handler after urinating and defecating and accepts pets from back of neck to flank with loose body. Easily distracted by passing vehicles does not pay much attention to handler but continues to accept pets with loose body language when handler approaches. Easily returned to kennel and leash easily removed. (4/19) Dog Meet --Attempted dog meet with Sheila through fence. Agent S was very aroused, vocalizing, muzzle punching the fence. When met Sheila on leash, attempted to snap before able to introduce. Took in separate yard and continued to fixate on Sheila from across the parking lot. Still allowed handling and did not tense up. No interest in toys or treats. Pulled heavily through parking lot and into shelter. Placed back in kennel and leash removed without issue. (4/19) Per Staff -- Agent S was easily leashed and removed from kennel today. Still bows when leash is presented but easily looped. Once on leash, pulls through shelter and outside until in yard. In yard, runs laps for 5 or so minutes before returning to handler. Allows handling all over with loose body. Chases a rope toy but does not play with it once he gets to it. When handler stops petting, uses nose to nudge for more pets to flank. Pulls back to kennel but easily returned to kennel and easily unleashed. (4/18) Per Staff -- Moderately difficult to remove from kennel due to dog retreating and then coming forward again. Friendly, but conflicted. Once looped, exited easily and only pulled slightly while walking to evaluation room. Allowed handling all over although did show some signs of stress - heavy panting and some displacement sniffing. No issues returning to kennel or removing lead. (4/15) Was able to remove from kennel again on 4/15. When assessor approaches kennel, Agent S comes to front of kennel, takes treats nicely and pushes against kennel door to solicit pets, allows pets with loose body language. Leashing is easier than last time but Agent S still bows and then retreats before coming forward again and bowing. Is able to be leashed with no snapping at leash and readily leaves kennel. He pulled strongly through shelter and parking lot into yard. In yard, Agent S is initially tense but loosens after a few minutes and allows pets over entire body with relatively loose body language. Did not show interest in toys. One member of the public did walk by the fence which caused Agent S to tense and bark. Handler was able to pick leash up with no issue. Agent S pulls through the parking lot and shelter when returning. He is easily returned to kennel and leash is easily removed. (4/14) Per Staff -- Agent S approached for treats and took them gently but would bow and then retreat to back of kennel once presented with leash. After a few attempts, Agent S became overstimulated and started nipping at leash. A very loud barking dog in the kennel next to Agent S seemed to be escalating the situation. The handlers ended the interaction and moved to the other side of the kennel, which was quieter. Agent S remained at the kennel door as the handlers attempted to leash and accepted pets and treats. The handler was able to leash Agent S and the dog immediately exited the kennel, pulling strongly through the shelter and to the outside. Agent S continue to pull through parking lot, zig zagging in front of handler until we got into a yard. Agent S' body language in yard was tense and handlers attempted some pets to flank which were accepted. Agent S was very aloof in yard, tracing perimeter repeatedly but would accept treats from handler when he passed by. Showed no real interest in toys beyond chasing a tennis ball once. When members of the public would walk by the fence, Agent S would tense and hard bark. Agent S tensed up when handler picked up leash to go back inside and pulled strongly on walk back to kennel. Agent S dodged going back into the kennel but was lured in with treats and easily unleashed. (4/12) Per Staff -- Unable to remove from kennel. Took treats with a soft mouth, ears back, tail neutral. As soon as the leash was in sight he moved to the back of the kennel and would not approach. (4/12) Per Staff -- Still unable to be removed from kennel. Dog is hard barking at front of kennel, retreats and then charges towards front of kennel, snapping at bars. Spent 8-10 minutes attempting to coax with treats and Fresh Pet but behavior continued. When attempted to leash, dog snapped repeatedly and tore leash. (4/10) Behavior -- Initially dog lunging and hard barking at approach of assessor. Ceased barking when treat was presented, but still showing teeth. Assessor dropped treat and stepped away. Approached dog for a second time, dog this time was not snapping/lunging, but was low growling and extremely stiff. Able to drop treat in kennel and stepped away for another few moments. Came back, dog was on other side of kennel, but was able to call him over and again give treat. Dog continued tense posture with low tail, but ceased offensive behavior and growling. (4/10) Upon intake, one individual surrendering the dog had to place the dog in the kennel; ACA commented that the woman who was also present at the surrender said she was "terrified" of the dog. Dog was surrendered in a muzzle that needed to be removed, after finder placed the dog in the kennel. Despite the muzzle, the dog tried to bite the leash multiple times, snapping at ACA. Was able to get the slip leash around the muzzle, and unclasp it. After, the dog seemed to calm down and all signs of aggression stopped. (4/8) Intake -- The finder's nephew was walking the dog, a neighbor approached the dog and the dog snapped and latched onto the man's pants. The man was not injured, and is totally okay. That was the only time the dog has ever tried to actually bite someone, usually it was just hard barking and growling (which he did to me in the lobby). Per finder - Aggressive towards all people, only good with one person, protective. The dog growls at children. The finders keep the child away from them.

Photos and Video: Aris and Athena Loving on Staff! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PICK0mmBNOc Aris knows sit! -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv_LldXRhzU A love story! -- https://photos.app.goo.gl/9n7Nrvkx6p1pX3eq5 Intake Type: (4/22) Owner Surrender -- Dogs got out from underneath the fence and got in a fight with another small dog. Behavior Observation: Per foster: I was able to foster Aris for 9 days in May. Aris is a big sweetheart- he gives endless kisses (that is how he wakes you up in the morning) and despite being about 70 lbs, he seems to think he will fit in your lap and loves to try and curl up and lie down on you. At about 1 year old, he still has a lot of that cute puppy energy. When Aris first came to my house, I realized pretty quickly that he is house trained and responds to sit, lie down, stay, and no. We would play fetch and he let me take the ball from his mouth with no issues whatsoever. I never saw him get protective with toys or food. He also responded really well with several people I introduced him to, including my sister (who is generally nervous around dogs but they became pals fast, see her selfie below). Oh, and he is obsessed with peanut butter. I also learned that Aris can be sensitive to other dogs, and unfortunately my next door neighbor has a German Shephard who didn't seem to like Aris very much. He also gets a little nervous around tall men, but I introduced him to two different men during the week I had him and once he can approach them and sniff them he turns into a puppy. I haven't seen Aris around little kids, but several middle-school aged kids passed by within 2 feet of us on scooters/skateboards and he was totally fine. I think Aris could do really well in a house where there is a large enclosed yard for him to run around and also possibly in a neighborhood where there isn't a lot of nonstop loud noise outside or other dogs barking. Please feel free to text me if you have any questions about Aris! 607-342-1041. He is truly a special dog and I'd love to see him find a forever home! (4/27) Per Lifesaving -- Dog is loose, bouncy and friendly in office. Solicits attention from all three staff members in office with a loose and wiggly body. Love pets and back scratches. Very social! (4/26)- Social and at the front of the kennel when approached, took treats softly. Slightly avoidant of the leash. Pulls slightly on leash, urinates/defecates outside. Solicits attention from the handler with a soft body, open mouth, tail neutral. Allows handling all over. Spent time in the office and he was soft and social, eventually settling at my feet and napping. (4/26) Per Lifesaving -- dog came into office. While I was at my computer working dog approach me with loose body language and wagging tail. Dog sniffed and licked my hand and then gently jumped up and licked my face. Allowed me to pet him with loose body language. Dog was calm in the office and sat at staff members feet quietly. (4/23) Social and at front of kennel when approached. Easily leashed and lead out of kennel. Appears curious at other dogs in kennel, but able to be kept moving along without any issue. Outside, dog displayed nervous behavior with heavy panting, dilated pupils, constantly surveying environment and avoidant of handling. Allowed some light petting, however. Pulls moderately on leash but able to be controlled and kept moving. Able to be brought back to kennel and have leash removed with no issue. (4/22) Per Previous Owner -- active, barks at strangers, knows sit, lay, stay, the dogs are relatively well behaved with the cats as of now. Aggressive towards other animals -- This behavior has only happened once, when the dogs got out from underneath the fence and got in a fight with another small dog show less

Once outside he became frustrated that he could not go into the front parking lot and began mounting my leg. I used the fence as a tie out and was able to make some distance where he could not mount. He continued to attempt to mount for about 3 minutes until he was distracted by a smell and I was able to redirect his attention and we could start walking again. No issues returning to the building or kennel. (4/16) Initially baring teeth when kennel is approached, followed by a snap. Treat offered and snapped again, but then realizing it was a treat, stopped, and ate quickly off ground. Low growled while visiting dog in kennel nextdoor, handler turned and offered another treat.

Would come when called but then immediately go back to gate door. Walked nicely with minimal pulling back inside the building, and went into Evaluation Room. Sought attention from handler and allowed slow petting. Played with a stuffed toy but quickly lost interest. Easily brought back to kennel and allowed lead to be removed without issue. (4/15) Artica approaches front of kennel with a soft body and sits, easy to leash, pulls moderate on leash. Once in the play yard he paws at the gate to exit with ears back, lip licking. Outside the yard he allows handling and will solicit attention from handler with ears back, tail down, mouth closed. Easily goes back into kennel. (4/13)Per previous owner - active, sensitive, nervous, aggressive to strangers, hyperactive, great with cats, comes when calls, aggressive around toys, jumps on people, destructive-scratches/digs, snaps at people, aggressive around toys, affectionate great dog just randomly decides to "switch up and attack." (3/13) Per Vet Staff -- Very friendly initially. Growled when examining his shoulder.

Photos and Videos -- https://photos.app.goo.gl/Bhs3gidsRdkLwvPc8 Bentley is about 2 years old and 65 lbs. Bentley loves to take in and observe everything around him. Bird and people watching are some of his favorite pastimes! Bentley can be a little nervous around new people so he needs a family who can respect that he needs time and space to decompress and feel fully comfortable. He would do best in an adult only home, with no cats. Bentley is a very smart boy and he will gladly show off what he knows for treats. He knows "sit, "lay down, "paw, and "other paw, and "roll over". While hanging out with his volunteer friends, he loved chasing after and squeaking his new toy, rolling around in and chewing on grass, and laying down to chomp on a bully stick. Bentley is available for foster through rescue! If you're interested in learning more about this handsome, smart boy, you can email his Pen Pal, Nori - nmjacqu@gmail.com Medical Observation: (4/5) Vet Check -- Adult male neutered pittie with multiple bite history per owner surrender notes. Being treated for URI and now has reportedly decreased appetite in kennels that may be related to URI, medication, stress or combination of all three. URI is showing improvement with medication and no evidence of medical decline, but if he is not taking his meds not safe to directly pill. Will treat supportively and monitor appetite etc. Currently on trazodone for behavior and should monitor for behavioral decline. (3/21) PE: Apparently Healthy Behavior Observation: (4/10) Evaluation -- Aroused in kennel and attempts to push past handler when being leashed up to exit. Pulls extremely hard while walking and is prone to sudden "yanks" on the end of the leash. Allows handling of the head, back, and buttocks but overall, very aroused and mostly uninterested in handling at this time. Engages in tag/chase games in short spurts before being distracted with environment (birds, visitors, cars in street, etc).

Dog pulled a blanket off of daughter, daughter went to grab blanket back, and then dog bit "nipped" daughter's top right face cheek. Dog knew he did something wrong, owner said dog was scared after the bite. Level 3, drew blood, owner did take her daughter a clinic and they gave the daughter antibiotics. Dog is up to date on vaccines, according to owner who took the dog to vet about 6 months ago for shots. Incident 2: Bentley bit owner's sister on 5/4. She did not need stitches, but blood was drawn and her hand was swelling. Bite level between 3 and 4. When she got to the window, the dog lunged at her, unprovoked. No signs of aggression were reported, like growling/barking. They both thought that the dog was possibly overstimulated, so sister decided to leave. When she opened the door to leave, the dog jumped again and bit her on the hand. show less
