You are looking at a dog that was severely abused. You are looking at a dog that was at a high kill shelter. You are looking at a street stray. You are looking at a dog that was highly fear aggressive. We are the unwanted... the shelter dogs. So there it is: We come with "issues." We know that. We appreciate that humans want to help us.
