This dog came into RAGOM from a commercial breeder and has not been adequately socialized to humans. RAGOM requires that any adoptive homes contain a physical fence (due to the risk of escape); another fairly confident medium to large sized dog to role model from (everything is new and scary for them); no children under 10 years old in the home (normal kid behavior scares these dogs). Our goal is to find the forever family for these dogs and our experience leads us to use these criteria.

I would like to introduce you to Khloe, one of the 29 dogs that came from a retiring commercial breeder in Missouri. She is very grateful to the wonderful volunteers who drove down to rescue her and also to the team of volunteers who checked her over to get ready to start her new life. Khloe is one of the oldest dogs that came in from this breeder. She will be 9 years old in June and had a litter of pups not long ago. She will be spayed so she doesn’t have to have any more litters.

When Khloe arrived at our house on Sunday, she had to be carried into the house because she was very scared. We assumed that she had never been in a house before like most puppy mill dogs. She stayed in her kennel the first 24 hours, except for when she was carried outside to go potty. We eventually got her to follow our resident dog through the door and down 2 steps into the garage. A typical puppy mill dog would not have done this in the first week. She still feels safe in her kennel with the door open and now will venture out to take pieces of chicken or hotdog from us when she sees our dogs do it. She is slowly starting to trust us. If we give her a dog treat, she will take it, but not eat it. We can pet her and rub her ears, but only when she is in the kennel.

Khloe went to the Vet and did really well. She had her ears cleaned because both of them had yeast infections, so now we get to put drops in every day. It wasn’t fun having them cleaned, but the head shaking has stopped so they are feeling better already. She weighs 44 pounds which is ideal for her size. Her fur is very dull and dry but will get better as she eats high quality food. She is microchipped and UTD on her vaccinations and will be spayed in a few weeks. The Vet showed us one of her teeth looked bad and told us we might want to have it checked out.

More to come as this beautiful dog gains more trust and blossoms into a playful dog.
