Our George is two years old; I am home sick with the flu and he is at my feet on the couch. He has come so far from the terrified little rescue 6-month old puppy! Just want to encourage anyone who is in the early stages of helping a rescue furbaby to never lose hope! He is happy, well-adjusted, loves the grandbabies, and comes to me for good scratches and love. None of the things that terrified him before (almost everything!) bother him at all any more. No magic, just lots of patience and love that built his trust in us.
