Laika was found abandoned and brought into rescue. It was very apparent that Laika had a very bad life, part of her jaw is missing making it very hard for her to eat, one ear flap is missing. As soon as a blanket was offered to her she immediately claimed it as her comfort spot. With lots of love and attention she rolled and presented her belly on the third day being in foster. By the fifth day her tail came up.
Walking her on a lead is work in progress. She stops and bolts repeatedly and although not a big dog the constant jolting requires constant attention. This week I bought a gentle leader which is a nose halty that attaches to her neck collar but not under her jaw. It seems to be working much better.
We went to the dog park for the first time on October the 9th. I was cautious because I knew she could not protect her self from other dogs due to the missing jaw. There was 3 dogs playing at the park. I asked the owners if any of the dogs were aggressive it turns out they were all softies so off she went to play. When the other dogs came to sniff her she stood stalk still then bolted. After a few minutes she approached the other dogs and it was play time for the next 20 minutes. She came home happy and exhausted. Laika is a gentle dog who loves attention. She loves to run and play with other dogs and will carry soft things in her mouth like my cloth grocery bags. She needs training and guidance to build her confidence and lots of love to gain her trust – and she is worth it.
What an amazing girl! Please email
