Arrival Story:
Bowie was surrendered to the local SPCA. We had been looking for dogs there for several months and I was actually there that day to look at another dog. Bowie was curled up in the back of her kennel shaking with her tail between her legs. After a good half hour she came to the front to check me and out decided that I wasn't so scary. I went in every day for almost two weeks after that until she was finally spayed and we brought her home. She took a lot of work! She was very aggressive towards strangers and acted like she was the queen of the house. She's getting a lot better now. She's very smart.

Bio:
last week i took her for a 2 hour walk through downtown and she didn't bark at a single person. but then, a couple blocks from home, there was this clown... she didn't see him and she was going to walk right past him even though he bowed and took his hat off and said "why hello there pooch!" i thought for sure that she would lose it but she walked by without even looking up. then he pulled his horn out and honked it in her face and she LOST IT. i didn't reprimand her though because he was a stupid clown. who does that?!
