Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Barb's another mill relinquishment. She came to us with numerous punctures and wounds on her back left leg that required surgical repair. She was treated for lice and will be treated to a nice bath. She's sweet but very timid right now. She'll stay with our vet partner until her stitches can be removed. Stay tuned for more.

Barb is having a better week, acting spunky and playing more. She is enjoying walks a little more and not trying to turn back and go home every 30 seconds. She is starting to become the best snuggle bug you could ask for. She has a new benebone that she loves chewing on. Barb has been doing better with visitors and doesn't hide in her crate the entire time. She continues to do extremely well with other dogs, however she is becoming more independent and confident. Barb loves to be brushed. She would do best in a low key, quieter home.

It's time for a Barb report!! This girl is so funny. She is trying to figure out how to play with the other dogs in her foster home, but gets nervous and then plays by herself by flipping her toys in the air. Barb has had no accidents in over a week. She won't tell you when she has to go, but if you bring this girl outside she will potty within 1 minute. We call her the potty master! We are still working hard on leash training. She gets very nervous in new situations and forgets what she needs to do. She is very comfortable in our house with the resident dogs & will need a confident canine sibling. Barb does not mind being separated from her people, but gets very upset when separated from her foster siblings. Barb loves her crate and eats all her meals in her crate. When she sees her foster mom get breakfast ready she runs to her crate to wait for hers. This girlie is pretty fast when chasing her favorite tennis balls!

A Barb pup date! With much help Barb's foster home has been working on crate desensitization and training. It was a battle at first, but Barb is getting the hang of it. Barb has a crate in the living room and one in the bedroom. She protests for a few minutes and then goes to sleep. She has been eating every meal now. She is starting to play with toys . She loves her fur siblings and every time they come in from outside she gives them lots of kisses. She is also starting to get excited when her foster parents come home & greets them with lots of tail wags. Her legs are almost completely healed and looking good. Barb is starting to turn into a happy go lucky golden retriever gal!
