Quite a conflicting history; only a two year old dog owned by a little old lady who passed away but also abused and from a puppy mill! At the Sanctuary animals such as these have no expectations put on them and we adapt to their personality as opposed to molding them to our needs. As such I am not an expert in changing animal behavior or training. I would advise a consultation with an animal communicator in your area and depend on them to refer you to a behaviorist that could help you work on your new pet’s behavior.
