Went to the vet this morning with Betty and the vet was amazed how
well/quickly she had come on. She checked her breathing/chest and said that
all seemd fine and Betty can resume normal activities and we do not need to go back for any more checks - what a relief!!!
She even took Betty to the back of the surgery to show the nurses as a training excerise how it was possible for a dog that was so close to death can rebound so quickly.
We took Betty out for a short walk last night in Swinley forest which is practically at the back of our garden ( those in this area will know it but it was in the news earlier this year for all the fires), she met a couple of dogs
and although a bit yappy was not firghtened at all - tough little bird!!

Let the training begin!!:D;)

Great news. Amazing how quickly she has bounced back. And so glad she met other dogs on her walk too.

Will we get to meet you are St Albans or Surrey meet, Betty will be the star of the show:D

That's wonderful how well she's recovered. Such a relief for you.
After Dylan was attacked he was very nervous around other dogs for several weeks. The breakthrough came when we found a pack of friendly dogs out walking off-lead one day and we joined them. Once Dylan settled down and got used to being surrounded by lots of dogs, he stopped being nervous when other dogs arrived and after that he was fine socially. In some ways it's easier for you because you weren't with her when she was attacked - I was as traumatised as Dylan and was scared and overprotective for some time, in fact until he grew to a size when I felt he was less vulnerable. If you do find that Betty has any socialisation issues, I suggest that you surround her with friendly dogs as much as possible. The vet did say to me that being attacked at an early age can lead to the dog becoming aggressive unless you re-socialise well.

Hi Julie

Had seen the thread about the St Albans walk but I'm away on holiday that week which is a real shame as I have a number of close friends who live in
St Albans so could have combined a visit. Just seen the thread about the Surrey walk and Betty and I would love to come depending on final date/venue:)
