The Luckiest Dog: A Fortuna Update

Lucky indeed, was the female German Shepherd we surrendered earlier this year. I recently received word of her progress and am pleased to report that she has improved greatly, with the help of Maddy Holden, her new foster mom. Fortuna has been attending training sessions with Maddy, hiking on trails, and meeting new people with a newfound, canine friend.

Her reactive episodes of barking and growling are over and she can walk calmly on the lead beside other dogs. She can perform a multitude of obedience tasks including heal, stay, down stay, and sit stay.

Fortuna is just as pretty as ever and her true curiosity is shining through. One day she will be leaving Maddy, to find a forever home. For now, she’s gaining important skills and becoming more comfortable with herself and the world we live in.
