gailminni Posted September 10, 2013 Report Share Posted September 10, 2013 Hello again guys. I started a topic called "Breeder" around 3 weeks ago and everyone was so helpful. I found a what seemed to be PB BC at a shelter about 59 minutes where I live and went to visit her today. I wasn't expecting much as her pic on PetFinder wasn't very pretty. But I decided to go anyway. She is just beautiful (to me, anyway). When I called earlier I was told she was laid back. That I didn't see. We put her on leash and took her outside. She was pretty excited and jumping up all over us. She was loving though and laid her head on the humane society employee's lap. What concerned me was she would not take a treat from me. So I thought my treats weren't to her liking. But then she wouldn't take a treat from the employeee either, and it was one she is used to eating. I was told she normally ate them. She seemed happy. Could this have been caused by over excitement or stress? All of my training will be based on treats or food reward and, of course, lots of encouragement. I will be using clicker training. One last question. She has been at the shelter for three months. That's a long time. Do you think permanent psychological harm would be possible in that period of time? This is really the last question. Is there any way to tell if she came for a working line or show line? This will not affect me getting her, just want to know. I plan to go back in the am. http://www.pedigree.com/03Adoption/Adopt-A-Dog/Select-A-Dog/dogDetails.aspx?dogid=26937404 Thanks to all and especially everyone who encouraged me to rescue!!!!! Thanks.
