Mary...45lbs of love.I bottle fed her since she was 3 wks old.She was under a trailer just outside Jackson Mississippi.Her mom had probably had 7,8 litters .Atleast. She was chained with a chain that could pull a truck.Her head hung low from the weight. A bleak future for this puppy. At 4 months old, I adopted Mary to a man in my neighborhood who had another dog,a great vet,was retired & at the dog park everyday.. He did not keep up his end of our contract and never walked her.She must have been alone with his dog all the time. After a month,when I realized he was no longer bringing her to the park or even walking her,I went to check on her. ... (Read More)It took 2 wks but I got her back. I believe his dog was dominant,food agreesive & she has a learned this behavior or he would eat her food. I am still so broken hearted & angry. She was showing signs of having never been outside at all.When trucks,buses go by while I'm walking her,she is so afraid. She was showing signs of territorial aggression and some food aggression with my other dogs.That has inproved greatly. I do take her to the dog park and she loves it,does very well with most dogs.She does have territorial issues around the gate as other dogs are coming in. Some time has passed,she has 2 wonderful friends now.Especially,the Great Dane.She adores him.I wish they could be adopted together! They eat together,sleep together.She is respectful of his food.which I believe will transfer to other dogs. She is 'unlearning' some behaviors! I have been using a trainer which is helping. There are so many cats hanging out on the sidewalks & porches here.She gets really stimulated. Then there are the squirels.She wants to chase them. Maybe she should live in the country. She is a love to be with though. Very sweet but protective She needs a real dog person to be patient with her.And take in all the love she has to give.She'll sleep with me.She loves chewy bones & those deer antlers!I started taking her out with me on the bicycle.I tie the leash around the seat so I have both hands to hold if she see a cat & pulls. But omg,she is an athete! She is doing amazily well. I think she knows it please me. I reward her so much afterwards. I feel her issues are fear based. Exercise can really help this anxiety. You know what they say,'a tied dog is a good dog'! I'm so proud of her. (Less) Adoption Fee: $150. Animal Location:
