Blade is still at the shelter. He is not adoptable right now because of his fear and bad attitude. I’ve been going in a couple days a week to work with him and have made some headway, but Autum has been amazing with him!
A rescue said they would pull him, but then backed out. So he is again in need of a solution. I’ve committed PMFC to taking him so he doesn’t get euthanized.
I went to visit Blade again. Autum has made great progress with him, he knows “sit” and “paw”, and will walk on a leash with her. He found that he HATES hats and loves Vienna Sausages. We have another dog in care who also hates hats because his former owner would take off his baseball cap and beat him mercilessly with it. Maybe something similar happened to Blade.
Friends Animal Shelter is supposed to be bringing Blade out to PMFC in their van with Autum riding with him to keep him calm. His room is ready and we are all excited to have him in residence where I can spend much more time with him.
And I have a supply of Vienna Sausages laid in for him!
