What is your main reason for joining the group?

Dec 21 I adopted a traumatized 6 month old puppy mill rescue. I need advice on how to help her. Within the last two days she began to step off the couch to get her dinner if it is within 2 feet of the sofa.

Please give us some background on your dog(s). Age? Where did the dog come from? What past training have you done with your dog?

Sandy is a 6 month old beagle/poodle mix that I adopted from the Southern Souls Rescue in Georgia on Dec 21. Sandy came from a horrible puppy mill and her entire litter was traumatized. Sandy has had very little human socialization as the rescue organization had her at a kennel with a caretaker and 30 -50 other dogs. The first time Sandy had a harness/collar on was the day I brought her home. She is very sweet but very skidish. I have been taking her out on walks, and she seems to enjoy them. I am giving her lots of love, but need some advice on how to proceed with getting her comfortable in the house.

Does your dog come from a puppy mill or hoarding situation?

No answer yet


I adopted a puppy mill rescue on Dec 21. Sandy is a sweet girl and I want to ensure I give her all that she needs to heal and thrive.
