She was abused by men or a man and we think she was kicked, because she would never get near my husband's feet. Any time he stands, she moves out of his way. She used to bark at him when he would dress in a suit and tie, wearing dress shoes, when he went to work, and until he changed clothes after he came home.
One year later, through my husband's frustration and patience, she will come to him when he lies on the couch and will even kiss him. She is always there beside him when he has a snack, which he shares with her, despite my asking him not to...
She is such a sweet dog. She is smart and good natured. She used to be very nervous and spun in circles. She has calmed down a lot. We still have more work to do, but are so thankful to have her as part of our family.
We love you Izzy girl.
