Got a new dog, kind of a rescue dog, since our last dog passed on. His name is Shadow and is about 2 1/2 years old. We got him from a breeder. The dog could not run with her pack so he spent a lot of time in his crate. When we got him he had severe crate anxiety. He would freak out in the crate. We were working with BRAT looking for a dog. The person who I worked with from BRAT told us to just let him free in our house. We did and he is doing surprisingly well. Still is having a few accidents in the house, but we are dealing with it & being patient with him. He is a really big male, but is a real gentle sweetheart-no aggression what so ever. Had him two weeks & counting.
