My friend had her for a couple of weeks and decided that the puppy experience was more challenging than she had thought and asked me if I would take her. I really struggled with the decision because I did not want five dogs. My husband and I talked and talked and talked but I still could not say yes. During a weak moment, I showed my husband a sample text that I was thinking of sending saying yes I would take her. He made the decision by hitting the send button. So it was done. I had a new puppy by that afternoon.
She is dog reactive, stranger reactive and wants to chase and nip ankles. She nipped a jogger's ankle while on our beach vacation and I was totally mortified. She even drew blood! I assured him she had all her shots and promised him I would get her into an intensive training program when I got home.
I work with her daily on obedience and manners. I have taken her to a dog training facility. I have even tried a vibration collar. There is a tiny bit of improvement but I have not given up yet. My goal is to make her a well mannered and obedient dog. She is extremely intelligent and such a loving and cuddly dog, her fear of strangers and strange dogs is the only thing that keeps her from being the perfect dog.
Say a prayer for us and keep your fingers crossed.
