Default A Very Boring Video But...

So a major breakthrough tonight with Cassidy. I have had the pleasure and challenge of having Cassidy in my home for 3 years. She was severely abused and was found beaten on the side of the road with her front leg riddled with buckshot which ultimately resulted in a front limb amputation. Understandably so, she is absolutely terrified of humans. She trusts me, my husband and 3 of my very close friends including my dog sitter (thank God), otherwise she shuts down when confronted with strangers. Cassidy has never played with a toy. Never ever in the 3 years I have had her. Tonight, she went up to the toy box, took a toy out and proceeded to chomp on it. If you look at the video, and it is a rather lengthy video because I was so amazed I had to film the whole thing, you will see her get anxious towards the end when the other dogs get near her toy (licking of the lips, nervousness). I'm just posting this to show that a breakthrough can occur in a rescue dog...even after 3 years! Cassidy has discovered the pleasure of a chew toy! And how important it is to protect it! Hope you can open the link...

That has to be one of the sweetest videos I have seen. What a face. You must be incredibly proud of her break through :-)

What a wonderful video, it's so nice to see what a great breakthrough Cassidy has made. My last dog must never have had toys either because he didn't know what to do with them at first but it didn't take too long for him to learn. I bet you are so proud of Cassidy. Oh and BTW, not a boring video at all! I loved it.
