kingfisher7151 Posted May 30, 2017 Report Share Posted May 30, 2017 How does this happen? I have a third dog. Ugh. At this point she is a long term foster, but she will become mine permanently in the next few months. She's a 15 month old rescue from Texas. A group of us uncovered a "training" facility that was full of abused, starving, very sick dogs. They are at felony fraud level as well, and are likely facing jail time. This dog isn't at death's door, but she's in his driveway. Her name is Bodhi, and she's so damaged. Leash reactive, super afraid of men, came to me about 8 lbs. underweight. She has gained over 3 lbs. in her last week with me, despite having HORRIBLE diarrhea and worms. I had her flown to me, and now we're on our way to recovery. Her breeder is actually local to me, I brought Bodhi to her and we had a good meeting. She's actually incredibly well bred from mostly working lines, with a dash of sport (which is where her color comes from.) Both parents were actively working on a cattle ranch until about a year ago. A good friend of mine is a behaviorist in California and she has 3 full siblings who are either established obedience dogs or very promising ones. Bodhi was the hands down pick of the litter based on her behaviorist evaluation, it makes me sick to see where she's at now. She is a pretty little thing, an interesting blue saddleback tri with half a blue eye. I'd never seek out the color, but having it come to me as a rescue is kinda neat. She's going to take SO much work, I'm going to spend my time looking back over the Kelso thread. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
