Zen, a cropped ear rescued sanctuary dog

521 6


Zen is one of the 50 + rescued dogs we live with. My husband Stan Labatte and his mom Yvette Labatte have been rescuing dogs for the last 25 ys. Zen bite his owner when startled startled awake. And he bites hard, fast, and he doesn't know he is doing it - he is NOT awake!!! He is slowly learning that he is safe when he sleeps, nothing will hurt him and he rarely has biting frenzies anymore. Zen lost his ears to a botched ear cropping.
