Ribbon Ring gets a new foster dog
Meet Rue. He was an emaciated, extremely nervous, lost little dachshund that came to my local dog shelter. He stayed at the shelter for about a week and no one came forward to claim him. He was not coping well with shelter life and so I brought him home to foster him. He has made HUGE improvements with his nervousness and separation anxiety. My Mastiff, Bella, is such a good teacher. Rue is finally learning to RELAX (something Bella is good at). Working with Rue has been so much work, but to watch him transform into a normal dog is so very rewarding. I encourage you to give back to your community in any little way you can. Maybe you can go to your dog shelter and spend an hour a week volunteering. When you give comfort, you get comfort.
