A post previously, "http://www.sheltieforums.com/showthread.php?t=16708&highlight=neighbor" I was just so worried when a young intact pit bull stray showed up at the neighbors. So sure this dog would kill us all! Well, flash forward to last evening.... The Mom and Dad of the family were on their front porch in chairs, their dog (neutered now) laying down in between them. I pull into my driveway (about 40' away) let my dog out of the car, we walk to our front door, and Hamm (the neighbor's dog) never even raised his head off the cool porch. They bark and bounce at each other through the back yard fence, till I call my dog off. But in the front yard, both are under excellent verbal control. I give my neighbors so much credit, they put in the time, the money, the work in turning this stray bloody pit bull into a respectable and mannered family dog. Wish it always would work out this well!
