When I brought Lobbus home, he came with many problems. Separation anxiety with destructive behavior, dog aggression and lack of appetite with a severely underweight dog often made me consider returning him. I decided to keep a journal to record my frustrations, and to keep track of all the things I tried to overcome my problems. Not everything worked and I'm sure some was more luck than method, but eventually the impossible dog turned into a babe. Now, after one year, I am so proud of my dog that I would like to share my experiences and hope that some of the hints will help and encourage other dog owners to give their rescue dogs an extra chance. They will reward you with all their love.


About the Author

Rieneke Leenders

Rieneke Leenders has traveled extensively, exploring six continents and 70 countries so far. The slow, down-to-earth way of travel she prefers, enables her to get in closer contact with the local people. After years of exposure she developed a sense of understanding and passion for the world's traditional cultures. This inevitably made a strong impact on the choice of subject matter for her art work.
Rieneke started her art studies in the Netherlands at the Academie voor Kunst en Industrie in Enschede. She graduated from Vakschool Schoonhoven with a major in gold and silversmithing. She focussed on sculpture at the Vrije Academie in Venlo and with Wim Rijvers in Kessel. After moving to the US, she started concentrating on painting. Known for her watercolor portraits, she also uses acrylic and oil and varies her work by painting botanical close-ups.

The print on the preview was small so I couldn't read much, but your pictures really told the story. What a lucky dog to find such a loving home.
