I have come to the conclusion that I need to give myself a time frame for Weezie's adoption woes to level off. After Monday's abject meltdown (on both our parts) I have to admit that the way it's going is simply not good for either of us. Last week we had made some good progress, and I do hope that Monday was just a fluke, a combination of upset tummy and my first day back to work. I am going to reach out to my trainer, and take advantage of a generous friend's offer of a fenced yard for playing. But, I think the end of the year is going to be the goal. It breaks my heart but ...

(edit) I've decided to get Weezie evaluated at the local doggie day care center. I could probably afford to take her there once a week, and that would definitely get her more exercise than I can give her. I know the folks who run it, and they are good people.

She is such a good looking girl. We still find things that stress Buster. He really doesn't like to be in the house, much at all anymore. He's become very protective of his yard and those that come cannot reach over the fence. He doesn't like the male ups drivers, but loves our regular driver that is a sweet woman. He's gotten better around smaller dogs and is happy to school the puppy that visits us on occasion. The pup tried to jump on a friend last weekend and Buster put a stop to that behavior better than we could have ourselves. There are just some things I know we won't be able to overcome, especially some of his anxiety. Our old, sweet dog was a puller and we used a Halti for him. It was a good fit and curbed those behaviors rapidly. /Justine

 
I think Weezie lived on the street, or in an abusive situation (where she had at least one litter of pups); she has scars to prove it. She's very food driven, which is a first for me. I think she spent time on her own before going into the "program" (she was found running loose along a busy highway), and the adjustment to living in a house has been steep. The "guys" did the best they could, but there are just some things that can't be mirrored in a prison situation. I'm glad she was around other dogs there. I knew there would be work, but I just didn't expect it to be quite this intense.

Scritches to Buster. Love to all you FromWyomings.

Weezie is not my first dog, nor is she my first rescue dog. Having said that, this adoption has been an extremely challenging, and stressful, experience ... for both of us I know. I went into the process trying, very hard, not to rush into a new dog, as I did when Tasha died and I adopted Middy. I was excited about the Pen Pals program and visited several dogs before settling on Weezie. I asked many questions and waited for her to finish her training program. I paid attention to what the inmates told me about her and went into the adoption feeling optimistic. I was not trying to find another Middy.

It hasn’t been easy by any stretch. Weezie’s anxiety level is high (thankfully not all the time), and she is not the easy going, calm dog I thought I was adopting. I knew she was afraid of thunder and gunshots, but I had no idea that random things would scare her so much (ceiling fans, tearing aluminum foil, unopened umbrellas, matches ... ). And the pulling on the leash wears me out, literally. It is causing a lot of pain in my hands. I am working on this issue and have a lesson scheduled with a dog trainer. Apparently this is not something that they worked on with her in the prison. I don’t have a fenced in yard, so walking her is the only option for “business.” And I ENJOY walking a dog, and want to do it. Both for her health and mine.

There have been moments when I have felt like an abject failure in this adoption and I hate myself for sometimes not having enough patience. I very much want to do right by Weezie, and although I’m not 100% sure I’m the right person for her, I am committed to working on it. I know that it is on me to be consistent and loving. She is extremely sweet and has great potential. It’s going to be a long haul, but I hope the worst is over.

You could get a fence put up for ~4K.She's probably never had a chance to chill without somebody hovering over her and freaking her out.A little "private time" would allow her to develop her own personality,not a trainers vision of what she should be.

 
A cheaper/temporary version would be to get some 6' chicken wire fence and stakes and create a pen...can go a s big/little as you want.
Or...a few months on some meds to mellow her out?
