Raina found the perfect home with Bea. Bea runs the spay/neuter now program and has done tremendous grass roots work toward preventing thousands of homeless pets! Raina (now called Rainey) lives with two other dogs, a couple cats and Bea! She has been spayed, her foot re x-rayed, is on antibiotics for the Lyme disease and any possible infection that might be left in the foot! She is learning the ins and outs of the dog door. She could not have found a more loving, more secure place to call home!
Grace is interviewing with families this week. Her first appointment is this Saturday! She has been working diligently on her sit and down cues. She has made huge leaps and bounds on her puppy mouthing behaviors. She is learning to pick up her rope on cue and put it in a basket. She loves holding things in her mouth. She has great potential for retrieving items and other chained useful behaviors around the house. Her next task is to learn four on the floor and to try to contain some of her happy, youthful joy into a more appropriate social greeting. She has the potential to be a great dog!
Jake is the new comer on the block. He came happy and joyfully today from the pound. He is very even tempered, tolerant and accepting of new situations. At the moment he is none to happy about his crate after being free to roam the yard all day. He may or may not be housetrained… time will tell. He is a very happy confident dog outside but assumes the low crawl, slinking position when he is walking in the house. When you speak to him or engage him in an activity inside he becomes the happy confident dog again! Stay tuned for updates on Jake. This guy appears to have a lot of aptitude and intelligence!
