Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Guinevere
Jennah working with Guinevere on a leash. She has her dog Clover with her to encourage a balanced mind for Guin to mimic. A handful of hot dogs encourages her to take her mind off of the leash that she has deemed so scary and has reacted so negatively with. One step at a time, a few steps here and there and before you know it, she will think this leash isn’t so bad…
She loves Jennah at the ranch, follows her everywhere and is getting more and more sassy. We have been putting a leash on her just to get her used to it going in and out of her den at mealtimes. Today Jennah gave it the first attempt to move her about in the office. Miles and miles of improvement, she’s got a long way to go but it’s nice to see the light come on and the fear dissipate.
Guinevere is one of those special case dogs. Very frightened, very shy, except she loves Jennah and Makala at the ranch, both young girls, she gravitates to them readily, follows them around and will lay right next to them when they sit. We will hope for a home for her with a female that will make her comfortable, don’t get me wrong she is a project dog, she will require tons of patience, tons of it, she will require work and will require someone willing to put in the work. She has yet to walk on a leash for us and for a dog that weighs 75 pounds that is huge challenge.
You guys all know how this works you’ve seen it before with dogs like Chili and Ruby and Abraham, give them space, give them time, let them think, and the dogs will help rehab them faster than any one single person could.
