This little dog reminds me of my rescue Angie. I begged the rescue org not to shave her down, told them that I would work out her mats in time. It took a month of short daily sessions to get there. She was very reactive verbally, just like this little one, especially with the leash. Makes me angry to know the kind of abuse that would warrant a dog acting this way. I knew I couldn't feel sorry for her, the best thing for her was to move her forward in her new life with us. I also had a stable old black lab to help teach her the house routine. Thank you, Belle, RIP. The rescue gal told me during our home inspection that she knew Angie found her forever home when I asked her not to be shaved. Amen!
Here's a picture of what Angie looked like, before and after.
