ADOPTED ON 01-17-15 – Beautiful Blaze had a bit of a rough start to her life. She was picked up by Winnsboro animal control when she was approximately 2 months old. This pound is almost always at capacity, and the constant noise of the kennel took a toll on Blaze, she became stressed due to the noise and confinement to her pen. Blaze then went to a foster home where she escaped, but never left the property. It was over a mo514nth before her foster was able to touch her and coax her to come inside. She never once snapped, but was absolutely terrified and trembled with fear. That is when the rescue decided to contact a handler experienced with dogs that have been traumatized and are unsure about everything to help her work on her trust of humans. Blaze is an 8 month old female golden retriever mix, she weighs approximately 31lbs. She is up to date on all vaccinations and in excellent health.
Blaze has come so far in just a short few months from being the petrified little dog she was. She recently attended a Halloween event in the center of town with hundreds of people. She wore a pumpkin costume and she even had children come up and take pictures with her, and she did wonderful! Today, Blaze is a happy little dog who loves playing with other dogs. She is still a little unsure of people she is not familiar with, but given a proper introduction and a little time she warms up. She is house trained and although she has not been crated, she has spent time in a kennel. Her foster mom thinks she would do fine in a crate, because they are quite similar. Her behavior with cats is unknown. Blaze loves to go for rides in the car, and sits on her mom’s lap in the car. Blaze has a low to moderate activity level.
The ideal home for Blaze would be a loving home, with someone who would continue to work with her when she is exposed to new things and people. It would be wonderful if Blaze could go to a home with another dog who is well balanced, and could continue to help build her confidence, she will absolutely recover and come out of her shell. Once she warms up to people, she loves attention and is a complete snuggle bug. Blaze has come so far since her first day in foster care. When you look into her eyes you can see that sweet golden expression saying “I just want you to love me”. Do you have room in your home and heart for Blaze?

- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOGS
