    Dog Home From The War With PTSD

    She was adopted by a US soldier and is now experiencing life in America. A moving account of this dog's story with her new family.

    I"m glad she's got a good home either way, but it sounds more like feral dog than a traumatized one. I don't think its ptsd.

    It's amazing how you are able to diagnose this dog having never met her.

    I'm just saying that article was about dogs and PTSD and she listed not one thing about that dog that tells me the dog has PTSD. I read the whole article and all I get is street dog with aggression who doesn't like to be confined.

    I could be even more critical. She admitted she was intimidated by the dog so why was she trying to take it places other than the vet? The dog chewed 7 leashes and a harness and was an escape artist at crates and confined spaces and yet she took it somewhere where it could get into a dog fight, and then she did it again within three days because the dog got into not one but 2 dog fights over 3 days she says. And further more she somehow expected this intimidating dog to not get into a fight because it was female and the dogs she allowed it to meet were male? A dog like this being placed with this inexperienced lady wasn't a bright idea.
