Arrival Story:
I searched for a bloodhound and couldn't find a puppy in the rescue groups so I looked on craigslist and found a 4 month old puppy. I drove 4 hours to pick him up and thought I was getting a cute healthy puppy but that wasnt the story. She kept him outside 24-7 since she got him with no shelter and all concrete and dirt under his feet. They had a large female pit that was unaltered that they used for breeding and they threw her out in the yard as well with him. When she opened the gate he could hardly walk he was 30 pds underweight, bite wounds all over his body, embedded collar, open sores, bleeding sores and his skin was moving due the amount of fleas on him. Half of his fur was missing as well. I paid the lady and scooped him up and got out of there. The vet stated a few more days and he would have died. I cant believe they treated him like that and then wanted money. I would have paid any amount just to take him away from there. He has taken more work than any dog I owned but has given me back more than I could ever ask for. He is a toddler stuck in a dogs body!

Fred quickly became very aggressive and had major behavior issues; we went through a ton of trainers and a ton of money trying to rehabilitate him. I owe a huge thank you to fellow dogsters who where around to lend words of courage and their ears to let me whine. Fred and I walked for hours every single day, we would walk through all behavior issues and I made him so tired that he didnt have the energy to behave badly. No trainer, amount of money, medicine, or treats curbed his negative behavior like pounding the pavement every day. Feel free to check out my blog about my dogs
