rescued from a purebred shelter- specializes in certain breeds, was suppoced to be euthanized due to behavioral problems, anxiety, severe seperation anxiety, aggression to people and other dogs, possessive, tempermental to her body being touched, occasionally will jump and attack (random objects or livng things) believed to be a ex-puppymill breeder, she was found abandoned on the side of the road (a common practise when a breeding dog no longer produces), was adopted out to a home where she was abused, then taken back in and it was decided her behavioral problems made her unadoptable... drove cross country to prevent her from being put down... she is 10 years? and as crabby as ever :P
An accidental breeding by a lady on welfare... she was on her way to drop the litter off at a no-kill shelter that does not adopt out bully breeds... so, unintentionally a death sentence, Chai is 2 year old pitbull (dilute bridle), trained in flyball (dog relay race), top of her training classes, on her way to be a certified therapy dog (if we can get ger to stop knocking EVERYTHING over... clutz :) ) also being trained for dock diving
Waiting to be released to get a bottle from the water
Found on the side of the road, she is feral and while she is learning to rust people, she shuts down near new people and becomes very skittish when food is involved, she has problems going through doorways when people are around (may have once been owned and abused) maybe 2 years, terrier mix gal who LOVES the beach!
Rescued Box Turtle, owned by a family friend's kid who got bored, she was put in a 5 gallon tank on the bottom of a book shelf and was forgotten about (no food or water) for 3 months, finaly talked the owners into giving her to me... first experiance with a turtle... or reptile.... but Im in love with the mean gal, she tries to bite my finger at every opportunity, but shes finally healthy and she LOVES "scuba diving" (sitting in herwater dish and putting her head under water) she loves basking in her heat lamp (something she has never had to my knowledge) digging in th moss and cconut shavings (she lived on newspapers before) and eating fresh organic fruits and veggis with the occasional egg, chicken, or worm :)
POed at me for what ever reason as always :P
