Current Location: Milwaukee, wi
Is Luna spayed or neutered? yes
Is Luna up to date on vaccinations? yes
Why the animal is being rehomed: Luna was rescued in May 2017 for a horrible environment in which she was very badly abused the first year of her life. I have worked hard with her to make her feel loved and comfortable. She went from timid and scared of EVERYTHING to being moderately regulated and able to go to the dog park daily. In the last 6 months she has become increasingly aggressive with my roommate and my landlords children. We have tried behavioral tips and tricks but I just don't think I can meet her needs any longer. Looking for the right fit and will home her until that is found.
