Two weeks ago we picked up this guy from a foster home.
As far as we know, he’s been in kennels since about three months old and was probably a street stray before then. He has a bit of his ear missing (maybe to show he’s been neutered).
He was scared of people (especially men), scared of cars, scared of walking on the lead, scared of the lead and didn’t respond to his name. In other words, he was going to be a challenge!
This is the first part of a series of posts documenting how we’re doing with teaching him to be a happy, well-behaved pet dog. We’re writing it in the hope that what we learn along the way will be useful to others looking to adopt and (re)train a dog looking for a home.
