I was rescued from a hoarder in Lucern. I was the last dog left from this raid at the pound and was scheduled to be destroyed. I lived my entire life on a chain with very little contact with humans and other animals. I was not even fed for days at a time. I'm currently working on trusting humans and other animals. I freeze when someone touches me but I don't growl or snap. I basically ignore other animals because I'm unsure, but don't growl or snap at them either. I haven't barked yet since I was rescued because I'm still learning how to be a dog. I m a work in progress and would do best in a household with adults that have the time and dedication to teach me how to be a dog.
