my name is laura and im new!!
i recently adopted a 1yr old german shepherd form the rspca. ive always grown up with dogs but this is my first dog since ive moved out of home, and its my first shepherd. i was just wondering if there was anyone out there who has a rescued german shepherd and knows any strategies for helping with emotional baggage???
Gypsie has been beaten up by her previous owner and is very shy around my boyfriend ( we live together) she is now starting to play with him and is not as anxious around him but has bad anxiety attacks when he tries to give her her dinner (will take treats fine), and if he enters a room that both gypsie and i are in she barks and growls aggressively (even if they have been playing happily minutes before). also now that she is fit and strong again ( she was 10kg underweight) she is starting to bully other dogs any suggestions that may help??
oh this is gypsie
