-Chicky-
Arrived 02//15/2019
Yes she has been with us over a year now.
Breed:  Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age:  5 years
Weight:  9 lbs

 

Yes Chicky is still with us.  She needs a very special home with someone who will understand her distinct limitations.

She is doing very will with the few people that engage with her every day, but it takes time to gain her trust.  She absolutely needs a home with no other pets.  Grooming is a challenge, she does have to be muzzled and it takes two to get through the grooming process.  A vet groomer that can give her managed sedation during grooming would be the easiest route.  We have worked to get a muzzle on her for these sessions to help de-sensitize her to the process. 

Chicky has received some pretty intense abuse in her past.   We are seeing a lot of improvement, but she still has a long way to go.  She is looking for a home without children or other pets.  She needs someone who has some knowledge and experience in working with abused and defensive dogs.  Every time we pass her we engage her with a treat and command.  She is allowing us to pick her up, but startles very easily.  We see so much potential there.  She really wants to be a loved and loving pet, and is working hard to get past her fears.  Chicky's placement will require multiple visits to ensure she knows the people she is going home with and that they can handle her.  Picking up and putting a leash on her are the most important tasks that need to be managed before she goes to a new home..  A new home must also be willing to continue training with an in-home behavioral trainer or have experience with defensive abused dogs.  We do have some recommendations in our area for trainer engagement,

Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.
