Celebrating One Year With Our Dog, Izzy...

One year ago today, we rescued and adopted our little female terrier mix and named her Izzy, short for Izzabella. Here she is in our backyard the day I brought her home:


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.

Donna, she is just adorable. And now the good part of her life has begun. She's just so CUTE!! :-) Made me tear up, wondering how anyone can mistreat such a trusting creature.

she is so cute! and while giving her snacks might not be the best thing, maybe that is what she and hubby needed to do to be able to bond to each other :)

Thank you all for your comments...She just turned two years old, so can you believe we were her third owners? She was found abandoned first, then adopted and brought back after two months for "unhappy living conditions". Poor thing. I really think she knows she is finally "home".
