I'm sorry for taking so long to update you guys on Blitzen. He has been re-homed again and he is now living in Winnipeg. The last time I called the guy who took him in, he said Blitzen was put down because he bit a drunk guy. I was so shocked because he has never actually hurt a human being before...he has growled and barked at me but never more than that. He had issues with other dogs..I couldn't believe he did that. Later I found out he bit the guy because he was provoked..the DRUNK guy was torturing him. So the by-law officer decided he would not shoot Blitzen and thought that he would make a really good pet to someone who could help him deal with his issues. So he took Blitzen to the vet and then we send out some pics to someone who possibly had a home for him. And they decided they could work with him and help him! He is doing great now. I hear he let's them cut his nails no problem now and he's good with other dogs now too. I just wish I was able to visit him, miss him so much. I know it's for the better though- for all of us.
