Everyone is aware by now that I have recently moved and i brought with me my four dogs....one of them being the mastiffXcorsoXdaneXmystery dog. Chessie was a rescue from an abusive home, I got her when she was 12 weeks old after the people that bred her (accidentally) had managed to kick out all her teeth, not feed her anything but raw bones, not worm, or vaccinate...leaving a sick and terrified mess...it took me ten minutes to catch her and she shook the 3 hour drive home. She was by far the worst affected by this home, but all the puppies were seized by animal control the same day. So chessie had some big hurdles to get over, because she was so ill, i couldn't start socialisation until she was 5 months old, she had her own pack at home but as many of you know, just because you get along with the dogs you live with doesn't mean you'll like every other dog. So at the age of six months I started gently getting her used to things, with the help of a trainer...she was dog aggressive but soon got over that...her worst fear was people, especially boy children and tall men. She would actually fall over and poo herself if she saw one. So it took a good almost 7 months of day long training to take her through walks in town, introducing her to nice people....and she was doing really well, she'd stopped pooing herself and shaking so much that she fell over and simply shied away a bit. Well last night i took her for a walk through the new town, which i'd done a few times before. I was barely 150 yards from the car, when some tall guy jumped out of the door way of a shop grabbed her and barked at her 3 times, she went rigid and fell in the gutter...she couldn't stop shaking, like she was having an epileptic fit and shat and weed everywhere....I yelled some not very nice things at the guy and he just walked off like it never happened. A few teenage girls came over and tried to help, but i had to sit with her for close to 15 minutes before she could even function again. walking her back to the car was a nightmare, and she pulled me over many times if any person walked past her, and when she herd some guy yell to his friend she fell over rigid again...she hasn't stopped shaking all night...she won't eat this morning...she's looking around everywhere, she even growled at my mother last night, which she has never done. I called the trainer she's just as upset as I am....Sorry about the Rant but I had to say something...all my hard work is gone and I have a dog that's ten times worse!!!!
