Rescue Me ID: 15-05-21-00031Fenix (female)

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Rescue is a hard word to use here.. as she needs some rescuing, but is not in a dire circumstance what-so-ever. This is a re-home: Fenix is a lovely BMD that's a bit smaller (~75lb) She is currently in a loving home, but is seeking her forever home. From time to time responsible breeders have dogs that aren't suitable for breeding, and Fenix is an example of that. She is shy, and can be assertive towards alpha dogs, especially females. (We believe as a result of 2 incidences out of our control when she was younger.. can elaborate via contact) She does very well with our young children, (12,8,6) but is concerned when strangers are in the ... (Read More)house and has nervous tendencies, hence our decision to spay her and not potentially pass these traits on to future offspring. She is going to be 2 years old on Tuesday May 26, 2015, is spayed, has a full pedigree with great orthopedics and longevity, and some known relatives to me as well here in the US. She is trained, excellent for grooming (actually loves the grooming table), gets along with some dogs.. NOT ALL! She started life on our hobby farm with dogs, cats, chickens and horses. She does bark at strangers, but quiets quickly. She has done great with all puppies and seems to really want to play with them, so isn't one that is annoyed by puppy behavior. She is much more leery of Men than women. This is not a dog for just any family! With that being said she is NOT AT this time capable of the following: 'ۢ Going to the kids baseball/soccer games etc. and being doted on by fans 'ۢ Being your companion at the neighborhood BBQ 'ۢ Attending dog parks or large mis-managed socialization activities 'ۢ Having neighbors and friends over en mass to pet, play and meet her 'ۢ She cannot be expected to lavish attention on a stranger, or even her new family for some time. She may never be capable of that. 'ۢ Being in an extremely busy/active home with many comings-goings, new dogs, transition dogs (fosters), loud and quick behaviors etc. What she Can do: 'ۢ Meet you and start the slow process of forming a bond of trust and mutual respect 'ۢ Learn the parameters and routines of her new home/family 'ۢ In a controlled environment (AFTER) the initial 1-2 weeks with new family.. introductions to other family pets. One thing at a time.. too many exposures and she'll collapse. 'ۢ Stay quietly in her kennel for short periods 'ۢ House Trained, play with toys, interact with you...small small groups 'ۢ Remain with you ON A LEASH when outside at all times, until the trust and bond is established. 'ۢ Start training with an experienced trainer that will show you how to help her continue overcome her anxieties and insecurities. If after reading this you feel you may still be a good match for her I would ask you do the following: 1) I've posted several videos of Fenix on U-Tube Fenix 1-7 2) If you are interested in applying for adoption, please email me and I'll forward application to you. ((*NOTE: Adoption FEE will be paid to the BMDCGTC Rescue to aid in the services they provide for other BMD's))) (Less)
