Phoenix in foster care and training

March 24, 2015:
Phoenix is adjusting to his new foster home, and he met the cool resident cat.
Pain, a new environment, exercise restrictions... It all makes for a slow healing process.
But on a happier note: He received an adorable card today!

Good evening, FB friends!
Tonight's post is a brief discussion about behavior.
While we want you to and 'ooh and ahh' over the cuteness of Phoenix, we also hope to shed light on his mental well-being.
There is a lot of work that is going into shaping his future.
He (especially as a puppy) had a horrific start to life. And with that, comes some behaviors that are not always desirable. Ways he conducts himself that may seem 'cute' or 'funny' (but are not).
ACT V and Fresh Air Training are devoting a lot of hours to help increase the probability that Phoenix will grow up to be a delightful dog.
The emotional healing must link to the medical / surgical healing.
Enjoy the video while appreciating the lessons in life Phoenix is learning.
Being a recovering puppy is hard work, and Fresh Air Training has a hard job.
