    We have just rescued this young girl from a difficult environment. She has a few cuts and cowers at a raised voice but she is already starting to improve after just a week with us. We have named her Blue, for obvious reasons! This picture was taken on day 1, when she immediately went to the step that our Bulldog used to sit at before we lost him in August 2018. She slept on the same step for an age and is progressing each day.

    She is only 20 weeks old and there is a big improvement already, after just 5 days.

    This was her yesterday. Her coat is much improved and she is relaxing more with each passing hour.

    In the pub
    We got a Rotty/Staffy cross from a rescue centre. He was 18 months old and had spent nearly all his life there. He came with 2 A4 sheets of behavioural notes, all bad, stating he probably could not be social with other dogs and strangers. Once we got him home the changes were immediate and after three months he is the perfect dog - he loves getting a fuss off everyone in the pub and is presently on my daughters bed having a cuddle (along with our other dog).
    Trust me, if he can change beyond recognition and be so happy, I'm sure you'll have no trouble with your pup. Strong guidance and love is all they need.
    This is Dexter
