Arrival Story:
He was a rescue:I met when he was 10 weeks old - … new neighbors … a year passed and the abuse was horrible… never allowed out, chained inside the house on a 4’ chain to the stair rail.. never given water or food… they said it would make him go to the bathroom in the house so they said he didn’t need it. They had children who would kick him and torment him. He was thin, almost bald… I worked on these people for a year to treat him right… calling the local animal control… no help… until one day a domestic argument happened … I went over to see if I could help… and “Bruce” ran into my arms…. The husband went to jail for a 8 weeks… … during that time I had been given the dog by the wife… with a written statement…I took him to the vet… all shots, check up and neutered… bought all the new doggie toys, a collar… etc. The husband got out of jail … came to reclaim his pup… threaten my family… big drama … police were called… The police said I have to give him back… because they owned the dog together… I was sooo upset… A month later I got a call from my vet who said they had something I needed to pick up… ( our Vet Doc Sellman helps with all my rescues... ! what would do without him?? ) “ Bruce” had been found wondering on the highway…thin and mauled from being in dog fights. So he is home now and very healthy and happy.. he' s my buddy

Open palm facing up near head level… means give me what’s in your mouth / drop it… near the paw it means lets shake…. An open palm held flat out in front of me vertically means stop and sit. A pointed hand finger sign ( like the mommy finger) means your not behaving so knock it off and settle . a back ward casual wave of my arm means not now.. go rest I’m busy.
