I suspect that she may have been abused a little in her first few months
before she went to the pound and then to CPR. because although she is
extremely loving and affectionate, she has always been wary of strangers.
Everyday she goes to work with us and Mercedes, my other AmStaff and meets
people all day.
Bridgit is adopted, and is now Jersey,
or J-Dog. A luck girl, new dog friends, and a new
When I go to the parts stores
etc, Jersey goes along and goes inside and gets treats. We have really
worked hard with her socialization and she is doing superb and is greeting
strangers now with a wagging tail saying pet me instead of a bark (still
saying pet me though) and I am extremely pleased with her progress because
without you (CPR) and a good adoption, she wouldn't
have made it and would
have surely been put down and she is such a great girl. She goes to
the river 3 or 4 times a week where she leaps off of boulders into
the water and swims for hours. The 2 things in this world she loves
most; Squirrels and the river. It's wonderful to have given her the
chance, see her succeed and look into her eyes and see the
gratitude and love in them.
