Help needed.

Amigo

A 3 1/2 y.o Chihuahua mix. Found abandoned/stray in Paragould, AR where we rescued him from. He too was to be euthanized the day we got him. Amigo is a darling little guy who is very smart. But he does have some behavioral issues that need to be addressed. He came from an abusive situation having been shot with a BB gun and the pellets removed by our vet. He is a biter to people he does not know, a fierce protector of his domain, and he is  an adventure junkie and will run off given the first opportunity.

Sox

Is a shepherd/hound mix that we also rescued from Paragould, AR. She was ONLY 6 months old. And like Amigo, was to be euthanized the day we got her. Unbelievable! This sweet girl's only "downfall" if you want to consider it that is she does need obedience training. While at the shelter in AR, she kept getting passed by with no interest shown her. The same has been true with us. She is very sweet and affectionate but she needs to be with dogs her own size because she is too aggressive and rough with smaller dogs. She has strong predation tendencies and therefore kills birds, lizards, squirrels, rabbits, frogs, etc. that she comes across

          IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED

                        FOXY

Foxy is a shepherd mix age unknown.  She was about to be put on the shelter's euthanasia list because no one wanted her. She had been adopted twice but brought back to the shelter shortly thereafter for people aggression. I can attest to the aggression because when I first met her she lunged at me through the kennel gate and barked aggressively.   

After spending aboout 8 straight hours with her  she came around to me. After this, I felt this little girl to be a diamond in the rough and needed the time and chance to prove this to be true. It is obvious from being around Foxy that she has had more than her fair share of abuse which probably accounts for her severe people aggression. If she sees you pick up an object such as a stick or broom, she runs away. If you attempt to grab ahold of her collar she will flinch and attempt to bite.  She has gotten along well with the other rescues and originally she was non-reactive to the smaller yappy dogs. However there has been some change with that where she shows signs of irritation  and reactivity to the smaller yappy breeds. She is proving to be smart, a quick learner and very loving once she knows you.

                         Toby

Above photos are of  bites from Toby when he displayed guarding behavior such as that dis played in the above video clip.

   

Toby is a mix breed chihuahua whose age was estimated at 2 1/2 years by shelter staff. However, since being at DASH, we are estimating his age to be considerably younger at around 1 or 1 1/2. He was at the shelter for a very short time when he began showing severe signs of anxiety. The veterinarian was unable to complete 

an examination due to biting.  Staff had very difficult time getting leash on him for very same reason and when they did get one on he continuously bit at the leash. Found as a stray he had no name so we have named him Toby. Once he knows you and trusts you he is very sweet and affectionate. He is already responding to his new name and beginning obedience training proves him to be very smart and willing to learn. 

Update on Toby: We have discovered that Toby has some pretty severe aggression issues when it comes to food,  treats, and toys.
