Update--- I have spent some time with April the last two Saturdays. Her behavior has been great both days. Yesterday she patiently sat in her 'run' while I leashed her up, even though another dog had been brought into the kennel area and they were all barking about it. She is eager to please and knows quite a few commands, sit, down, an elementary stay, and come. It has been easy to get her attention. She takes treats gently, loves to have her ears rubbed and can be a leaner. She has also been fine about other dogs being in her general area while we are out and about in the field. We are working on leash walking, she wants to pull ahead a bit, but no lunging. She is content to walk, work on commands, be brushed or just chill out by the picnic table.
Update:Lovely April is a remarkable girl. Like many pups before her, April seems to know she has been rescued and will never be subjected to the horrible conditions from which she survived. She enjoys the company of everyone she meets and seems grateful to anyone who notices her. April tends to take most things in stride. Having to learn the ins and outs of a new home can be unnerving; however, April seems excited to have the opportunity to enjoy the good life. She has discovered the joy of a good bone, soft bed, and plenty of toys. Living with other dogs, April is slowly learning the ins and outs of pack life. We are very impressed with her playful nature. April is goofy yet affectionate. She will happily sit for as long as you'll allow while you rub her beautiful ears. If this amazingly girl sounds like a match for your family, please inquire about her today.
April's life is forever changed, thanks to those who saved her from horrid and unsafe living conditions. It is amazing that with all that April has endured she is so incredibly sweet and wants to be loved and properly cared for. April deserves a family who will provide a wonderful life for her, one full of love and a commitment for her lifetime.
