|So long Izzy.|
Izzy has gone back to the Humane Society. She is a tender and affectionate dog to humans, but a terrorist when it comes to small animals.
I've had to keep my cat Adelaide under lock-down in the spare bedroom 24/7 for fear that Izzy would cause her harm.
That was not much fun for the cat.
I had an animal behaviour specialist from the Humane Society of Sarasota County here on Thursday.
He took Izzy (on a tight leash) to the bedroom door. Izzy went crazy trying (without success) to reach the cat. The behavourist said that Izzy is so prey oriented that she can never be trained out of this aggression. He strongly recommended that I should surrender her back to the Shelter.
I resisted for a while but he is the expert, so my good sense prevailed - the situation is not good for Adelaide, for Izzy or for me! I took Izzy back to the shelter this morning.and she trotted in without so much as a wave goodbye to me. (!).
In the meantime the Humane Society wants me to adopt "Zion" See photo' below.
He has been cat tested with good results!
He's recently been neutered and is being treated for heart worm, so I cannot adopt him for at least two weeks.
