ADOPTED ON 03-12-16 – [av_dropcap1]E[/av_dropcap1]qual to a child of four or five years old, wide-eyed, hungry, living in the wild, prey to large birds that could swoop down any minute and take her away, a little emaciated black dog was either lost or dumped in LA. Where was her mom, siblings? One can only imagine—were they dinner for an alligator, hog, or a black bear? Then, on July 28th she was picked up by animal control and she thought she was saved. At least now she had food however, she was alone in a cage that was only big enough for her to turn around in, her own feces on the floor of the cage prevented her from moving much–she was scared. A small group of volunteers would stop by before work, on their lunch hour and after work to walk and give her and the other dogs at the pound some vaccinations that were either purchased by the volunteers or donated by their local community. She longed to be held, kissed and become someone’s dog.

August and September passed, no once came for our sweet Ebony, so she was scheduled to die on October 12th at noon; Ebony didn’t know how close she was to leaving the worldEBONY_30 not ever knowing a loving home, warm bed and a family life. The volunteers were sad and upset, they went into action and blasted a plea to help save this beautiful baby who had a full life ahead of her. Rescue Dog Village responded and on October 12th, early in the morning, just hours from her PTS date at noon, a rescue angel scoped her in her arms, wrapped her in a warm blanket of love and kisses—I bet some hamburger was exchanged in the truck on the way–and she was carried her to her home that already had 20 dogs, she made room for sweet Ebony in her home and in her heart.

We believe that the dogs KNOW when they are rescued and her southern mom tells us about her first day: “This girl is just a puppy…she is so happy that she got this second chance and as you can see in the photos was pretty happy to get her freedom jail break from the pound too. Happy Tails to you Ebony! Thanks to all who made this possible! Wish all dogs could be this lucky!”

[av_dropcap1]E[/av_dropcap1]bony is starting to come alive in her loving southern home and learning that life is a good, she is fantastic with dogs of all sizes; she cheerfully greets all the other dogs and invites them to play. (Remember 20 of themJ)) They all welcomed her as her foster mom introduced them one at a time. She joyfully plays chase and wrestles with the other dogs….she is the happiest dog ever when she is outside running and playing and then settles down on the grass or deck to soak up the sun, she enjoys the sunshine. When so many dogs meet a new dog and see that she is well balanced, that is a good indication that she is adjusting. She is a very social dog and would make an excellent companion for someone with another dog. Quite remarkable for a young baby and the credit goes to the volunteers that took their time to establish that humans are trustworthy. She has not been cat tested but will bark at squirrels in the trees and rabbits out in the field behind the fenced dog yard—she is discovering her dog and that is helping her heal.

Ebony is also always friendly and loving to the children she meets.  However, no matter what the breed, dogs are animals and should never be left unsupervised around children. It is important that the adults always oversee any interactions between them in order to prevent any problems on the part of either party. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog is prepared to protect themselves. Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are safe and supervised at all times. 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.

EBONY_05Ebony eats a mixture of donated food and she is not fussy. She tolerates the crate but she does what she is asked to do without any protests. She loves all new experiences, rides great in the car and is great on the leash. She relates all of that to her wonderful experiences at the dog pound with the volunteers that walked her. She trusts her humans and has no fears of loud noises, sudden changes or any daily exchanges. She is making progress on her housetraining and her mom informs us that she is very smart, doing great, she just wants to please and be a part of life.

Every day for Ebony is like watching a child open a present, she is very inquisitive and wants to see everything that is going on around her. Her mind is like a sponge, she follows her mom around from room to room, always making sure that she is not missing out on anything. When she discovers something new, her eyes open wide and she is not only hilarious and very loveable, she is a treasure of all that is good with life.

Ebony is a happy and energetic little pretty girl who loves her humans; she loves to be touching you and never passes up a chance to be rubbed and scratched on. She needs someone who wants to spend lots of time with her, she is catching up on the life she missed. She is young so she will make a great companion and addition to a special family. Ebony is a happy and very comical little girl that adores her humans and loves other dogs. She loves to investigate and check everything out but then settles down nicely on her bed with a marrow bone and is content to just to near you.

[av_dropcap1]E[/av_dropcap1]bony ’s ideal home is one that would have a large fenced in yard as she enjoys being outside for periods of time and can have plenty of outside time and another dog her size to play with….then to be able to come inside to a large cozy dog bed next to the fireplace for those long cold nights. Ebony enjoys being with people and we are looking for a family who wants a devoted companion to adore. She is an ideal buddy for another dog and this perfect little dog has a big heart and a willingness to be loved and to love. This is unique dog needs a special family, she loves everything and everyone and if you are ready for a dog, make room, we are looking for a devoted family that wants to give her a forever home.EBONY_20

We believe that the dogs pick their adopters and they are meant for that family for a reason. Could it be that the dog you adopt saves you from a fire, loneliness, fills your home with laughter, companionship? Whatever the reason, know that if you apply for Ebony, your story started with LA rescuer volunteers on October 12th, early in the morning, just hours from her PTS date at noon, a rescue angel scoped her in her arms, wrapped her in a warm blanket of love and kisses—I still bet some hamburger was exchanged in the truck on the way home–and she carried her to her home that already had 20 dogs, she made room for sweet Ebony in her home and in her heart.

She saved this beautiful baby who had a full life ahead of her—FOR YOU.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:

  • When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack
  • The entire pack cooperates under as single leader
  • Lines are clearly defined and rules are set
  • Dogs communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting
  • Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog.
  • The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • 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, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught 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.

  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG

 

[av_textblock size=’16’ font_color=” color=”]


HOUSETRAINING
Schedule Feeding Time 
Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that

  • Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time

Schedule Water
Help your dog bee successful

  • Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
  • Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
  • After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
  • Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
  • Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.

Schedule Walking Time 
Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.

  • Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
  • Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
  • Until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc

One accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If your dog has an accident in the house, spray the area with 3 parts vinegar and 1 part water, brush with a soft brush, put a towel on top to absorb the liquid, then take it outside where you want him to go, take it out of the bag and put it on the ground, praise your dog when he goes outside.
