Louise was a long stay dog at the city shelter and arrived at our behavior program with a bit of a reputation. We learned almost immediately that it was not at all deserved. Louise did have some trust issues with people but she is so eager to love and feel safe that she's come around quickly. She's gone from a dog too tense to relax to a girl who falls asleep curled next to you on the floor. She responds well to training and loves the opportunity to interact with her people. In fact, when Best Friends star trainer John Garcia came to APA!, Louise was the dog that most charmed his socks off with her slobbery kisses and open heart! However she still needs some specialized training to get her ready to be successful in a home! We need to raise $300 to get her working with a sporting trainer. Can you help?
