My Favorite Dog

Most of the dogs I got are Askals. Some given by friends, some came from animal shelters where I previously work. There are lots of stray dogs in our city but they can still be trained and may seem to be a bad dog at first but once you feed and train them, they're just as good as other dogs with breed. Perhaps even better. I guess all the time you spend with them can really change them. I named my most recent dog whisper inspired by Ceasar Milan's show in National Geographic. I've been with her for about 5 years now I guess? She's a stray dog and was very weak when I found her. Her skin was bleeding a bit and you can tell at one look that her legs is either injured or just too weak to stand up. She's just near our house so I kept feeding her everyday until she knows where to look for food. It took me a month before I was finally able to hold her and it took two months before her skin started to get healthy again. Her fur started to grow much thicker than I expected. She's not the first dog I took in this kind of condition so I didn't have problem being patient in taking care of it. I guess it's because I've been raising dogs ever since I was 8 so I don't mind whatever they're condition is anymore. The next phase was of course, training your dog. It was very hard at first, she wouldn't even let me give her a bath after some time and she would often run just at the sight of water. Teaching her to be obedient when and when not to follow you was easier but it took weeks for her to get the grasp of it. But everything's okay now. We've been together for a long time now and I'm still trying to train her in the best way that I could. She still steals food sometimes but I'm confident she'll learn how to stop doing it in time. Well that's my review for my dog. I hope you guys enjoyed it.
