Default My new "rescue" dog, Izzy

In August, last year I ended up with a large miniature Poodle. She is by the same male as Bonnie. I did not really need another dog but felt so sorry for her. She was raised in a box stall in a barn, never out of it. She was absolutely terrified of everything and everybody.

I have worked with her very slowly and carefully. Bonnie has been a big help. At first I had to corner her to catch her but gradually she would sit and let me come up to her and put the leash on. She would walk on leash if I did not look at her but would bolt going through gates or doors.

Bit by bit she has been coming along and I am in no hurry to push forward. She sleeps on the bed with me at night along with my other little dogs, frisks around and plays and seems so happy.

I walked her down to the corner and back the other day with Bonnie and she was fine as we did not meet any cars or other people. I would have walked a little farther but it was too icy.

How wonderful of you to give this poor dog a home and how very lucky for her! And it is great that she has transitioned so well! Did she take to your other dogs quickly after Bonnie’s help? What is her name? I know pictures have been problematic for some since the forum went nuts, but if you can post one I would love to see her. What does she look like?

Thanks for rescuing and taking the time to help her. I am sure your other dogs are a big help too.

This is Izzy, she is by the same male as Bonnie but from a Miniature Poodle so is pretty well straight Poodle. She weighs 35 lbs. and Bonnie is 45 lbs. as she has the Golden Retriever mother. The two of play great together. At first the only way I could get her to go outside was open the door, then stand way back. Now she races out with the others even if I am standing there holding the door. She still spooks at anything different but is so happy now.

Cant seem to post a picture, it used to be so easy. What is a URL and where would I find it?

Oh, she is adorable! And good on Bonnie for being such a good mentor to her. I find it so interesting that every time I had more than one dog at a time, the first dog was able to teach the newer one all sorts of things I either wasn’t able to or hadn’t thought of. Izzy has lovely coloring and markings, do you think she will need much grooming/clipping as my poodles always seemed to?

She is clipped right down now and so is Bonnie. They both have good coats when we go for a walk but I don't put them on when they go out to play as they ask to come in if they get cold, plus they are racing around which helps keep them warm.

Considering that Izzy really had no housetraining, she has been amazing. I do let my dogs out often and now that she is comfortable going through the door, even when I stand and hold it, she stands at the door if she needs to go out and I have been busy doing something else. Never once heard her bark yet, she still likes to just sort of fade into the background.

This spring when the weather gets better (providing we do not have a repeat of last years fires) she will probably be ready to face more of the big scary world. Bonnie is three this year and Izzy is about the same age.

Izzy is beautiful. I am happy for her that you have her and are working to relieve her fears. It seems you are doing a great job.
