Puppy-mill rescue dog terrified of thunder in Shelburne

“We’ve discovered that our newly-adopted White Cream Golden Retriever is terrified of thunderstorms, This is the second thunderstorm season we’ve had Lillie and we’re brainstorming ways to reduce her anxiety without putting her in a stupor for 24 hours! I’m not against medicating my dog when it’s in her best interest, but we have considered her history of growing up in a cage in a puppy-mill in Alabama. Long story short, we thought of borrowing a large crate to see if that makes her feel more safe… Thanks!”

“Thank you for an overwhelming response to my post regarding my dog’s fear of thunderstorms! I received myriad offers including advice on conditioning, the use of Thundershirts, readers’ experiences of their dog’s fear, and offers for crates. We ended up getting an extra-large crate and met Georgia and Bill as well as their three rescues, King, Mike and Sweet Pea (a special thanks to you!) Needless to say, I am an avid fan of Front Porch Forum!”
