Please give it up for Ebony, our neighbor's greatest rescue challenge EVER! Ebony is part Catahoula leopard dog, part great dane, and part shar pei! She was quite an uncivilized Giant when her mom first rescued her.
Like, HURRICANE-CRAZY-WILD! It has taken her mom years to earn her trust, train her, and teach her gentle manners. Apparently, it's an ongoing struggle. But Rescue People are Determined People: And Eb's mom has devotedly kept up her faith that Ebony would learn to trust, calm down, and become a loving, gentle giant.
When mom's neighbor brought home Mr. Carter a few days ago, Ebony's mom felt uncertain how Eb would react. Was she really a gentle giant or would the "old Eb" leap out at Mr. Carter? Mom's friend was so worried but no one else was because we have all seen the sacrifices she has made to love and train Wild Eb with patience, firmness, and alpha-dog determination. No, we weren't worried at all.
Now look at them! Could little Mr. Carter have a better, more protective big sister?
We give a big SHOUT-OUT to Eb, her mom, and all they have gone through together to reach a moment in time where this Big Dog proves she has heart: and it all goes out to Mr. Carter and their mom!
THIS ONE'S FOR EB! WE LOVE YOU!
