Gunner - 3 years old - Chocolate Labrador Mix

Ever hear the phrase, "His bark is worse than his bite?"

That's Gunner. Actually, he's never bitten - but he barks and growls, and, well, just ACTS aggressive when he's scared in a new situation. It makes it hard to board him.

The truth is, Gunner just can't catch a break.

He could've been successful in his last home - he was well behaved and w...

(This is even cuter when...

We will introduce him to strangers today on neutral territory and see how that goes. If you would like to get a hands on experience /tutorial on rehabilitating a fear...

Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks? My name's Pete and, at 9 years old, I'm all about new tricks! I'm a fun-loving black lab mix who likes to play with toys and sun myself. My needs aren't complicated. A place to sleep, a family to love, good food to eat. See what I mean? I used to be really reactive about my food or when I was scared. But I've been working my behind off at The Pet Connect...

Bart is older, and was at our sanctuary for behavioral issues. We were very sad to discover a tumor on his side and we scheduled a vet visit. We had as much of it removed as possible but the surgeon said that the p...
