bdk Loc: Sanibel Fl.
 
He was found running the streets . As you can see in the pic he was a sad looking little guy.
He was afraid of everyone and everything. When we got him, we named him Sandy as he ws Sandy color and we lived on the beach. He was 18 lbs when we got him. He is now a bit over 30 which is great.....
We were told it would take 6 months for him to begin to warm up to us and living in a house.
when we got him home, he walked the house, went into the bedroom, jumped on the bed and said IM HOME !!!!

We have been working with him , he is still cautious of most people , if anything is moved in the house such as a chair or desk or even a lamp. He will bark at it and run and hide.
He hears every sound. He misses nothing. A squirrel in the yard he is barking at the door. Hears every truck that pulls up. Barks before you can push the doorbell cause he heard you.
When we first got him, if you raised your hand he would run and hide or cower in front of you.
Now I can pretend that I'm going to hit him, he looks at me and laughs and walks away. He knows how good he has it for sure.
We will eventually have the youtube video channel running Sandys travels. Money made from youtube will go to buy food, toys etc for shelters across the country as we travel.
PS we did a DNA test , he is 51% Siberian husky 48% standard poodle and 1 % minature poodle.

Thanks for rescuing him!

Our rescue was very similar (Poodle-Shih Tzu?), but the rescue agency spruced him up before we picked him.
Put your hand out to pet him and he would wince and coward.
We've had him for about ten years.
He's very comfortable now!

Huskies and Poodles (especially Standards) are intelligent, adaptable breeds. I appreciate that you're helping him become a normal dog and not insisting that he remain a "rescue" for life.

Thank you for giving that adorable baby a home. It's obvious that he is very happy in his new life. Rescues are the best!

Please give Sandy lots of hugs and kisses from me!!

Thank you for saving him. All our dogs have been rescues and shelter dogs. Abused dogs need care and patience to recuperate. Sandy is for sure cute!

Sandy does not hear anything you do not hear. How do you "pretend" to hit him? He is a small dog, not your personal cash cow. How pathetic.
