    Mike, Kiah's story brought tears to my eyes. She is so lucky to have rescued you! I predict many happy years of bully kisses! I am so glad you are here and shared her story with us!

    I can't think of one thing to say that everyone else hasn't. Please pass the Kleenex cause I'm all after reading this great story and the posts that followed.
    If I ever got to meet you I'd buy you lunch and shake your hand, Mike. You have a heart the size of Texas! To take this girl in and help her, show her leadership, and that she's loveable and safe...that makes my heart smile! You, sir, R-O-C-K...now, can we get more pics?????

    I can't thank you all enough for all your responses! Everyday she gets better and better!

    Here's a quick story, this just happened about 30 minutes ago.

    I took her outside on the porch to relax for a few. It was raining outside so the heat index is waaaaay down. My neighbor took his American Bully outside for a walk and she started to bark and I could feel the fearful energy. The fixation has gone way down! I immediately called her name, used the hand command I've been teaching her and firmly told her to sit. BOOM! Butt hit the ground and she was looking at me. She was still nervous of course and I immediately redirected her. I circled around her once she was sitting and her attention was completely redirected. I treated/praised her once she was calm. All this in a matter of 15 seconds or less, cept the treat of course. My neighbors were impressed. They came over to tell me they can't believe how much she has changed in less than 2 weeks.

    Here's a pic of her in a new bed I got her today, with her new Antler.

    She just plodded off to her crate, nap time!!!
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...

    I have some interesting news! I was able to track down Kiahs breeder! I have pics of her as a pup coming, as well as pics of her Sire and Dam. She is going to track down her full pedigree and temperament of her ancestors. The breeder was very happy to hear I rescued her. We learned that she gets her energy from her Aunt Sadie. Once I get more information I will be sure to post!

    oh my this is such a great story and should teach us how what we do affects our animals. sarah was a high aggression dog when i got her. of course i was not as versed as you with dog behavour so we had some very rough times with her and at one point i thought we would have to rehome her but she is still here and that was over 5 years ago. bless you for taking this dog in and saving it from a miserable life.

    That is heart breaking that anyone would treat her so abysmally thank the Good Lord above or whatever deity or not you do or don't pray to that she has such a good and patient Daddy. Poor Baby being locked up since she was six months old! I just want to give her moochies on her muzzle. My heart breaks for her. So glad to meet you two here. My Sheldon saved my life literally. I had a break down and attempted suicide and he got me help whining and pacing back and forth till someone started to wonder what had him so upset and found me unresponsive. Thank God for him!!! I hope Kiah has found her forever home but if not and she does find her forever home she will know love from now on!!!

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
