Hi dear friends. I came back home to live with my pawrents (mom & dad dog), siblings, and grandpa on June 6, 2009. The folks who bought me almost 4 years prior contacted mum and the lady said that I had to GO or she was filing for a divorce. She said I was a mean and aggressive dog that had bit several people including: the groomer, the vet, a little kid,some strangers and my hudad's mom when she took my food away from me. So grammy and gramps came and got me.Grammy didn't want me passed around to other strangers or taken to the Pound.My hudad cried as he loaded me in grammy's car cause we was buddies and he hated to see me go. None of the rest of the family was there or cared. My grandparents got me home and it didn't take long to see that I had been very unhappy and "traumatized" for a while. I didn't wag my tail, show any affection, and cringed if you'd go to pet my head or neck. I wouldn't even eat for 3 days because I had been trained to NOT eat any thing (food or treats) until I was told I could. I was like a "shell" of a dog or a robotic dog. Grammy promised that they would be the Bestest Mum & Hudad that I could ever know. They started working with me to "reprogram" an insecure and troubled pup dog by showing me love with gentle touches and understanding but most of all by building my confidence.Today was the BIG test. It was my first Vet appointment since I came back home to live. Now, mum and hudad had been grooming me and bathed me and I didn't bite them. They had taught me that my food and treats were MINE to eat when I wanted- or not eat. I greatly began to LOVE being rubbed and petted and showed affection to the point my tail just wagged from left to right. So, Mr. Vet man comes in the room and he puts his hand out and down to his side for me to smell- I NO bite. They then put me on the elevator scale to weigh me. I had only weighed 47 lbs when I came and now I am up to 66 lbs which is where I should be. Then the Vet Man came over close to me and I looked up and opened my mouth and put a BIG slobbery Sibe Kiss up the side of his face and neck. Then I put a second kissie on him. Since I was such a good boy and mum and hudad were Proud of me- they took me into Pet Supplies Plus pet store for a treat. I met lots of strangers in there and gave them all a big kissie and tail wag. I even went up to a lady that me and hudad thought was mum and stood up to hug and give her a big kiss- but it wasn't mum. She giggled and said Thank you and that she had bigger dogs than me and was used to it. Every one kept telling mum and hudad that I was a Beautiful doggy. And NO one got bit!
