Twin Cedar K9 proudly presents...The man "Fonzie Fonzarelli". When Fonzie came to us for a temperament test his hair coat was so greasy and with the cocky attitude that he had, his name was instantly changed from Edward to the Fonz! Fonzie was very fearful of people and was very reactive when he was approached or if anyone tried to pick him up. Fonzie is about 8 months old and is a Chihuahua/Terrier mix.
Since our evening pack walks have helped so many shy and fearful dogs get better, poor little Fonzie went on his first pack walk (on lead of course) that very first day! The poor little guy was a bit overwhelmed at first but once he met Yujo ( Second Chance Graduate #200) he found somebody that he could buddy up with. It was very cute watching the two dogs trotting down the path side by side. Yujo weighs about 70 pounds and Fonzie is about 12 pounds!
Fonzie has gone on every pack walk since then and boy has he blossomed! He is now going on the walks off lead and has made no effort to run away. He comes every time he is called and he has even played in the water. He and Yujo are quite the pair and it is pure entertainment for all of us humans to watch them play together. In one week Fonzie has gone from a very fearful little dog who didn't want to be handled by anyone to a very affectionate boy who loves everyone he meets!!
Fonzie is a little dog with a big dog attitude!! Please give Marge` a call or drop her an email if you would like to come out to the ranch to meet this very special little boy. 209-223-3194 or firstname.lastname@example.org
