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.
