Description:
This sweet girl was found running down the road dragging 15 feet of chain.

She had scars and fresh wounds on her head, we don't know for sure if that's because of dog fighting prep - all our input from dog rescues say it is. She was underweight and had extremely long nails, and had been kept on a metal or plastic floor because her toes were splayed out. Her toes are normal now!


We got her a nail trim, bath, shots, hw tested negative, spayed, and are training her. She had no manners at all and is aggressive toward new people - basically because she was unsocialized -- she is improving some.

She wants to please and is safe with non-aggressive dogs, although she will try to dominate. We are working on that. She is learning the word "no" a lot!!!

She does approach cats in too much of a lively manner and will startle them. She will chase if they run. We're working on that, too!

Gazelle has learned to "sit" & "high five" on command. She has also put on weight & looks great!

Any local trainers who want to donate some time to work with her will be very welcome. We are more in tune with cats and are doing the best we can with her but this is not our forte....

She eats socks and cat toys. So yes, she has had some syringes of Peroxide to force her to puke them back up. Sigh.  She loves to play with a tennis ball or a towel. We think she would be a great frisbee dog.

If you want to help with gazelle's expenses, you can donate to our rescue and specify it's for her expenses, but she is not adoptable at this time due to fear reaction.
