This is such important training! Please tell potential adoptive families that adopted dogs most likely require special handling. Oscar came from a puppy mill where he spent his time breeding and caged. He was fearful and aggressive toward our 3-year-old son. We were at the point of making a choice: training or Oscar had to go back to the shelter. Sue went out of her way to help us. She was caring and empathetic. She worked with our entire family and checked on us frequently. She was there for any support we needed during Oscar's rehabilitation. Today, Oscar is happy & well adjusted. We can't imagine our family without him!
