Wow, beautiful..

Too bad owner couldn't ride this out. Pup is only 10 months, and probably just needed some direction.

Good luck.

Of course I am going to start training AT home once she settles in a bit. I just won't be able to put her in a group class until the next one starts. As far as rehoming, the cats were the reason. Her kids love the family cats and the dog has a lot of prey drive that I don't think was ever really worked with appropriately. The dog is actually very well mannered otherwise and knows most of her basic commands already (i.e. sit, down, shake, stay, etc). She did come from a farm though and does definitely need some leash manners. I did see the dog in its home environment before taking her and I do believe the person was honest with me.

I think the owner could have tried working it out. However, her kids are very young. I think she was more worried about the dog injuring one of the family cats while the kids were present and didn't want the risk. She was fine around all the other barn animals like their horses, ponies, and ducks though.

Wow, she reminds me of mine I must say she is beautiful!! Mine has a strong prey drive and I have 5 cats, but I would never give her up. It looks like you have done good for both her and your family. Congrats!!

Well we get the most beautiful, awesome dogs in rescue all the time because the owners felt an issue was "unworkable".
We had a Harlequin Great Dane a while back that the owner couldn't manage. I think he stayed here 3 days, just long enough to get neutered, before someone snatched him up, they got an awesome dog

I am so happy for you all. Your Christmas present came early! Shiloh is one lucky dog. 10 months - now that's a good time - skip right over the puppy stage - and you can get started on the training and the exercise and appropriate outlets for her prey drive. She is beautiful. Do you know who her sire and dam are?

Thank you for the reply. Since she is from the same are, I was wondering if she could have been bred by Sting's breeder. But no. I hope she is adjusting well. From the photos, she does have more than enough toys and a playmate too :-)
