Dog Mom Who Almost Gave Up on Her 'Reactive' Pup Hopes to Inspire Others

With effort, patience, and love, anything is possible.

Not every dog adoption story is picture-perfect, and that's completely OK. It takes time for an animal to adjust to their forever home, and let's be honest--it's a learning process for owners, too! That's why we love the authenticity and hope that @gsdbess's popular TikTok video shows to viewers. 

In this video, Bess the German Shepherd's mama shares everything the two have gone through since the pup was rescued from Romania. Bess struggles with reactivity, but she and her doting mom are crushing it--one day at a time.

You've got this, Bess! Reactivity and fear can be difficult to overcome, but it sure seems like she has all the tools she needs to make progress. Love, patience, and a team of behaviorists can all make a world of difference. 

"You are the type of owner that I love to see," said Incasworld. "I went through the same with my horse and I appreciate you so much." See? It helps to be genuine! Even though Bess's story isn't the most glamorous one out there, it's just as beautiful and inspiring. We're so glad that other parents of reactive pets can see it too. 

"Thank you for not taking her back and giving her your patience," @shejustdancesshared. It seemed so worth it! 

@Pineapple_pizza_party shared, "'You don’t get the dog that you want, you get the dog that you need.'” That's such a beautiful (and true) saying! Dogs have a way of sensing who needs them, and it's truly magical to see it in action.
