Saturday was quite the day for Asha. It’s like a light switch suddenly came on. 1. Road trip! Guess where to!! 2. Look at me at the dog park. I almost chased a bird! And I checked in with Foster Mom and didn’t try to run away! 3. Rawhide bones? My new favorite (and check out how I’m using my paws to manipulate it!) #lightswitchon #trust #newbeginnings #rescue #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescueismyfavoritebreed #austrailianshepherdmix #fosteringsaveslives #notshutdown #feelingconfident #love @marleysmutts

How to feel safe when it’s your first time trying out the human’s bed. 😂🐕🐶 🐾 #rescue #safetyinnumbers #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescueismyfavoritebreed #hoardingdogs #feral #newbeginnings #trust #brave #bffs @marleysmutts @k9behaviorcollege

1. Ride back home with no crate, no 🤮 and no fear 💩. Best backseat driver ever! (Don’t worry, we were stopped). 2. Home for an hour and successful water drinking, out in the open. 3. Tolerated and dare I say enjoyed a petting/massage session and offered a smile. First smile since I got her (and probably first smile ever) #proudofmygirl #brave #trust #austrailianshepherdmix #rescueismyfavoritebreed #feral #hoardingdogs #fosterdog #training #roadrrip #hurdles @marleysmutts @k9behaviorcollege

Wanna see something fascinating? Getting Asha to drink water has been a nightmare. I’ve literally been mixing up her food with water and it’s been hit or miss. Mostly miss. @k9behaviorcollege pulled this off. Watch how Asha’s brain is computing the other dog drinking water which caused her to try it as well. And she does! I’ve been having my dogs drink in front of her as well but was doing it wrong. Thanks to @k9behaviorcollege, I’m learning more and more to help her. I’m picking her up today and will be given her routine in order to hopefully duplicate it at home. Fingers crossed. 🤞 #rescue #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescueismyfavoritebreed #austrailianshepherdmix #training #dogtrainer #feral #hoardingdogs #onestepatatime #newbeginnings #trust #patience @marleysmutts

Been out of town for a few days at my niece’s wedding and Asha has been staying & learning how to “dog” with @k9behaviorcollege. Lisa is truly the ninja trainer. Asha has come so far after only 3 days and I’ve had her for 3 months! She has been teaching her confidence and trust. She has gotten her to jump up, eat in the open with with other dogs around. She’s taught her how to be confident and feel so good about herself to the point of a tail wag and no tail between her legs! Seeing her up on that rock, looking around like a queen, makes my heart burst for her. She’s using her nose and resting without scanning the room constantly. I’ve been keeping her so close to the chest, feeling like that’s how to help her...to make her feel safe...but obviously I was helping her to stay in her fearful and insecure mode by doing so. I realize I’ve gotten her to a better place, but that’s because of @k9behaviorcollege’s guidance. And I’m not sucking up (well, maybe a little 😂). If you’re not familiar with Lisa, she is not only head trainer with the @pawsitivechangeprogram and a private trainer as well. You should be following her!She not only helps the dogs find their confidence but she also teaches the person how to be confident with themselves. It’s so true what they say, the dogs pick up on whatever energy you’re putting forward. #rescueismyfavoritebreed #austrailianshepherdmix #trainer #feral #confidence #trust #ninja #hoardingdogs #guidance @marleysmutts

Look who found his Mom and Dad!!! The power of social media 😃. Their daughter didn’t want her picture taken but she was so happy that she was crying. His name is CHICKEN. I was told he’s 8 years old, has had 4 babies, travels to Arizona often, goes on boat rides with them...happy days!!! #reunitedanditfeelssogood #foundbird #welcomehome #rescueismyfavoritebreed #cockatiel #cockatielsofinstagram

Tried to make Ainsley laugh. I might’ve scared her. #babiesofinstagram #adorable #wanttobitehercheeks #lovebug @rockinout13 @lavw5670

@the_taco_show handed me Asha’s shelter intake papers the other day and seeing the photo of her from way back then had me going backwards in my phone to see the changes. She really has come a long way. I have to remember that it is a marathon and not a sprint. Maintaining patience has been difficult from the get go but seeing her now is so rewarding. I’m heading out of town for a few days later this week for my niece’s wedding and she will be staying with @k9behaviorcollege for some expert ninja training and socialization. It’s important that she learns to trust others and not just me and @k9behaviorcollege is the perfect person to guide her through that. Gonna miss her! #fosterdog #fosteringsaveslives #k9behaviorcollege #lisaporter @marleysmutts #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescueismyfavoritebreed #hoardingdogs #feral #patience #austrailianshepherdmix

Asha sees the new birdie, Ziggy. Took her over 24 hours to register. She’s more than likely licking her chops from nerves. All of them are nervous but they’re learning to coexist. The entire menagerie seems to be resting now. #rescue #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuebirds #rescueismyfavoritebreed #hoardingdogs #feral #cockatiel @marleysmutts #savethemall
