    Hi everyone, A week ago I adopted an incredibly sweet 7 month old rescue. Even though he's not that old yet, he has been severely abused and is very distrusting of people.

    Took my dog out back to go pee real quick. My husband(who is away for military training at the moment) was on the phone with me at the same time and all of a sudden my dog was really pulling to just go.

    My GSD, Sarge, is very scared around my dad. He is 1 yr 7 mo. They've never been alone together, and I'm not sure what the trigger could be. From the first time they met, he's been afraid of him, he will bark, cower, and sometimes run away with his tail tucked between his legs. Any tips on why...
