22/3/15 Balkan is 4 years old and has lived most of his life on a chain as an alarm dog. His owners were going to have him put down because of his skin condition. He is now safe with RSDR. At the house Balkan became a guard dog. He would bark and carry on at everyone who came through the door. He really did think it was his job to protect us all. He was becoming quite nasty to strangers. It isnt his fault because that was his job before coming to us. So we decided he needed a holiday and get totally distracted from his gaurding duties. He has been up at the shelter a couple of months now and what a change in him. His job now is to have fun and welcome anyone who wants to take him out.
