I have been a lurker for a little while and have learnt so much. I live in Queensland Australia and adopt disabled or sick dogs from shelters.
My first boy a bull mastiff was beaten so badly on his back he never walked properly again, never was continent and had many issues, with a lot of love and care he lived until ten.
I had two pure whit bull Arabs one was a mum the other was her daughter saved just days away from being put down. The mum was extremely dog aggressive she had been abused to be a guard dog, her daughter was deaf, we ended up teaching her around fifty signs.
Now my beautiful neapolitan mastiff she was plucked off death row a week before it was her time, she was neglected but also needed three major operations to the tune of sixteen thound, we were lucky the shelter helped us with vet bills.
So I have some experience with special needs dogs, traing them, loving them and adapting for them.
I am really happy to be here and I know I will learn so much from you all.
