helping dogs become their best selves!

Meet Lada

This cute girl came to pranaDOGS through Rezdawg Rescue. Her owner passed away and as her and her brother were sent through the shelter/foster system they were separated. She had relied on him for a lot and ended up in a house without any other dogs – she was lost and didn’t know what to do. Through a series of events she ended up back with her brother but during the time with him she got cornered by a stranger while eating and ended up biting the man.

She’s just finishing up her adjustment/settle-in stage here and is doing well. She loves having other dogs around and plays great with them. She also loves having the option of coming in during the day; her thick coat makes her appreciate the cool, tile floors. But she’s not yet comfy with humans. I force petting on her and she tolerates it and once in a while she’ll lick my hands but she’s kept her distance from everyone else.

The second phase of rehab here is behavior modification; she needs to experience the world and gain confidence. We have to go slow with a girl like her, and begin with another dog – a confident dog that she likes – who can help assure her that she’ okay. We’ll keep you informed as her training continues.
