BHRR's Comet aka JAWS is settling in well. She no longer wants to eat me or my family yet, strangers are a different story. She will be with us for a long time. We still have to be quite careful about how we take her collar and lead her.
She is used to intimidating and 'getting her way' and, it has been a learning journey for us to learn when she is possibly nervous and, is just being a bully. She is spirited for sure! She is also so affectionate and, loving and, so, like a few others we have had at BHRR over the many years, she does not give herself of herself 'half measure'. She is still a bit skinny yet, putting on the weight nice and easy…slow is what we want.
She wants to 'listen' when she wants to and her recall, literally sucks a lot of the time still. LOL Day by day…..
She is most likely around 11 months of age and, prior to any first heat and, I am working hard to get her 'ready' for a Vet visit as, I do not want to see her go into a heat. I do not believe she has been spayed yet, we will lightly sedate her and check her stomach closely.
She has been fully de-wormed and is on Revolution monthly. It was a bit of a 'trial' yet, I have managed to get the tips of her nails. Once, she is under a light sedation, I will get them right back.
Here are two photo's taken from today of this lovely girl. AND, she is lovely. She just is going through an extremely long rehab process as we re-program her so to speak.
Several have been asking if she is going to be made as available for adoption and, there is no way to know that at this time. In the wrong hands, she would be a ticking time bomb. Hands down. We will not see her set-up for failure and, are giving her the absolutely best in structure, routine, obedience, consistency etc., under a positive yet, firm leadership. This is WHY we are here as experts in this field. Dogs like her.
