Help Heal This Handsome Boys Heart! (male - 8yrs)
Hello everyone, my name is Knox and I am a very special doggie to the staff here at the Nevada SPCA. I was a rescue from another organization where I spent most of, if not all of my life in isolation from people and have no referrence for what it means to live inside a home environment but I am welcoming the experience with an open heart!
The staff here is committed to healing my heart and that is why I am fortunate to be able to work with trainers one on one on a regular basis at Smarty Paws. Every week I progress a little bit more. I am getting better in the agility ring which is helping to build my confidence and I am determined to get my head up and tail out! I tried the treadmill and its really not my style but I haven't had any issues watching other doggies use it which is a great sign and have been going on walks with them too!
I even get to do some doggie yoga and work on my eye contact with people in the calming lavender room. I am still pretty hesitant coming out of crate on my own and am taking things really slow but everyday is a new day to get better!
If you have it in your heart to help me in my journey to a calm heart and peaceful mind please come on down and visit me today!
