Special needs

A week and half ago I went to my local pound and took out a dog that NO ONE could get near. She wanted NOTHING to do with anyone. If you reached into the kennel she would snap at you and try to bite you. In order to get her out of the cage the dog warden had to put a lasso around her neck and tug her out of the cage. She walked fine once out but don't dare reach down to pick her up.
When I sat on the floor in the office of the dog pound she came up to me and wagged her tail and let me pet her but as soon as I tried to pick her up it was KILL ME TIME! She wasn't having it.



I was only able to get her in my car by basically picking her up by the leash. Poor thing. When I got home she wouldn't come out of the crate so I had to 'dump' her out of it. I settled her in a large crate in my garage and the next day my mom was able to get her out and bring her in the house. My mom and dad who both live with me were able to gain her trust and she LOVES them. They can do anything to her, me not so much. She hates me.. lol

Well she definetly needed some medical attention but I had to wait until I was able to schedule to have her fixed. I didn't want to tramatize her and I was afraid she would bite the vet. So, when she went to the vet to get fixed (5 days after I got her from the pound), I had them fix her feet. here is the before picture

Poor thing. should couldn't really walk.

Now that her feet look a little better she is still having a hard time walking, I think it might be out of habit.. I really hope she still isn't in pain. Not that I can get near her. She hates me.

Well then today I received a message from a local no kill shelter. They have a special needs female JRT who is afraid of men and hands. She fear bites, just like the other little one above. So on Sunday my mom and I are going to go get her and hopefully we will be able to help. Figured if I got one living in the house, what is two. LOL!

Wish me luck!
