I got her!! Just leaving the shelter now!! What a gorgeous girl. Not so great with men at this time yet, warmed up fairly well with me.
Treats and treats! Snagged a photo in the car photo is below. 🙂
We are calling her BHRR's August and, the shelter is going to keep me in mind for a blind pup they have here that just came in.
She is a strong minded girl and gives the best head bumps of affection.
Then to work on the resourcing aggression issues to rehab her. She is a bit thin yet, nothing terrible.
Welcome to BHRR life beautiful girl.
UPDATE: August 18th, 9 PM
BHRR's August(Deaf 3.5 year old GD) – SHE IS HERE! August 18th, 2014
Sprung from the shelter!
She has her tongue sticking out in the photo – 'bye bye shelter she says!'
She traveled home well and, she is settling into her crate. She has had a small bite to eat and, is now 'telling me off'
We shall look closer at her eyes for they are really running, she is beginning a de-worming protocol, will get her revolution and, we will do bw for HWT etc. shortly. She is sore need of a nail trim and, we will take care of that also.
She is in fair body condition – a bit thin, smelly(not surprising), scared of men more than women and, armed with lots of treats, she has bonded so fast to me.
Her story: O. died and she went to the shelter in April. She was adopted out and then returned in June as the home said she was resourcing and aggressive, to other animals.
She went back to the shelter and, they contacted another organization that, waited 6 weeks before saying they could not take her, and, major kennel stress set in.
On August 2nd, BHRR was contacted to assist and, we had to wait to we had a spot and, she was able to come into BHRR today.
She has obedience in some ways yet, no manners or respect in others and, I am so looking forward to this journey! The shelter said that she always does well with the dogs in the play yard there yet, the home said, she did not like other pets at all. The previous home told the shelter that their Vet advised them to bring her back to the shelter. The shelter did not want to see her pts and, she is now here with us!
She has shown no reaction to any of the dogs' here for now and, the only reaction is fear to Sean. She has pretty much now accepted Mason from being, so scared of him when she first met him. They had the long drive home to get acquainted.
