UPDATE: BHRR's Salem, the newest addition to BHRR – only our 9th dog that we could assist to date in 2014 – had a good night overall.
Men scare her, sudden movement and sudden noises scares her, cars make her skittish and she is a flight risk right now.
Yet, she wags her tail for me low and wants to love and trust and be loved…..
Her fear growling is all a front to express her unease and, stress and, she is so sweet.
She had a pee and pooped recently and, drank some water and, is eating a bit. I do not think she likes the de-worming… I do not blame her. I put her on revolution last night and, her overall body condition is really good.
In fact, she should lose some pounds and, she is severely lacking in muscle tone.
Cannot say enough about those gorgeous expressive brown eyes that she has.
I so look forward in getting to know her and, BHRR's Stafford is so enamoured with her! He is literally doing back flips when he sees her! The big flirt!
She is in isolation right now in her very own 600 square feet, with two fish tanks, a double bed, wall to wall windows and, her own gated patio/yard! Loving the renovations we are getting done here at the house. Sean slept in the same room with her last night and, she was crated.
When we walk, she can see and smell the other dogs and, she has shown no signs of aggression or strain.
Photo from a walk today. Her leash manners are fair, not great and she knows sit.
She is estimated to be no more than 2 years of age and, I agree with that.
