How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Beethoven is a 2-year-old deaf husky mix who is very reactive to new people and situations. Because of his extreme reactivity, including aggressive behavior, we have a behavioral trainer working with him, as well as a university-sponsored canine-intervention team developing a training program specifically for Beethoven’s issues. Beethoven is showing tremendous progress. He has learned basic hand signals and is now beginning to look at his handler for cues as to how to respond to new people and new environments. With this type of progress, we anticipate being able to adopt Beethoven into a family in the near future.
