My goal with all of my dogs is to give them the best life possible. I often feel like I’m failing Viktor. He is making progress, but he still is not fully adjusted. He often, usually, wants to be by himself, and when he does get out with the other dogs, he has a habit of picking inappropriate things to chew on, so he needs to be watched closely. I can’t walk him with the other four because, if something comes along, like a person, a car, or a dog, he won’t move. If I was walking Crazy Sky and Crazy Viktor at the same time, I would need to move Sky away from whatever approached us, but Viktor wouldn’t let me. What we really need is a fenced yard, which we don’t have the money or the space to create. I wouldn’t say Viktor is unhappy, necessarily. Certainly his life is better than if he just lived on the streets. He would most likely be dead by now if we hadn’t caught him. I need to keep pushing him to expand his comfort zone, to enjoy more things that dogs can enjoy.
