Lauren was tied to a park bench in Piedmont Park Atlanta, GA on October 19,2013. She was brought into animal control where she lived in the kennel. In November she had a really bad upper respiratory infection and was placed on the euthanasia list at the shelter. Lauren became the rescue and foster coordinators office dog.
   Everything started out okay. The first time we became concerned was after she growled at a volunteer. She was spayed later on that week and we hoped that would help. Unfortunately, it did not help and she continued to have more trouble with strangers and unpredictable behavior. She also became very reactive with other dogs through a fence, on a leash and she couldn't go back into the same kennel she was in. We carefully managed all of her interactions and tried thunder shirts and worked with her.
  Lauren is very high energy and would love agility and be a great working dog. We are sure part of her issues were not being able to get enough exercise. But with her behavior she could no longer stay at the shelter. We posted for rescue or adopter but no one was able to help.
    We took her to a hotel room to spend the night with her mommies from the shelter the night before her scheduled euthanasia. We let her eat whatever she wanted and took her for a long hike up Kennesaw mountain the next day. On the drive back to the shelter we came up with a temporary alternative. We both knew we weren't ready to give up. Lauren would go into quarantine boarding for 2 weeks and then enter a live-in training program. This is the last chance we have to save her life. She will still need a foster, rescue, or adopter after training.
 Her boarding was just under $200, her live in training is $600 and we have to supply food costing around $150. We really need help to raise the funds as she does not have a rescue or adopter to fund this but no one wants to give up on Lauren. Any donations will help.
