Tonks came to the Lally family as a one-year-old rescue from the streets of Los Angeles. When she arrived, she was extremely nervous. She had no training whatsoever. However, she was highly intelligent and seemed to know she was among friends. After just four short months Tonks’ rescue family was able to train her to do a multitude of things: like training her to use a crate, not to bark at the postman, to overcome her aggression towards men and warm up to kids, plus a list of commands. Tonks had advanced beyond recognition and it was time for Tonks to find her forever home.
Her rescue family decided to place Tonks on our Home To Home website in search of that special family. They knew a shelter stay would not be the best thing for Tonks and wanted to find just the right family for her to thrive. Within a week Tonks found her forever home.
Here is what the person who rescued Tonks from the harsh street life of LA had to say.
