Adopted from the  Kerrville, Tx. Freeman Fritts Animal Shelter. A small no kill shelter. and returned after 4 months.  The family reported Phoenix was aggressive to the husband.  The shelter reached out to us for help.

Phoenix was transported to us and displayed some fear aggression while in the kennel at the vet.

Our volunteer foster went to pick her up and got her back home where she once again, displayed aggression and bit the foster as she tried to carry her inside from the car.  This dog clearly has issues.  She can only be placed in a home with an experienced dog owner.  She is going to need time to learn to trust and my always be a bite risk.  Her adopter must be prepared to help her decompress, and trust.  Her aggression is fear based.  She may never get completely over it.  

When she's not in fear, she is a  happy playful sweet girl!
