Dinky with David after being caught
Somehow Dinky made the cut and joined the group of dogs most likely to succeed and skipped camp Reno. She rode all night in the big truck over the Sierra’s in a snow storm and arrived at a shelter in the bay area early the next morning…
Dinky did not do well in the shelter environment, she would shake and cower as people came near. Dinky was to the point of pooping on herself when people came to close. A good friend of all dogs, Robin Wenham, was called in to help. He worked with Dinky regularly and even got her leash trained. It wasn’t easy, but he helped her overcome some obstacles with people.

Dinky with Oscar
It was decided that Dinky, along with Pinny, Harold and Oscar would make the trek back to the Nevada Desert going to Dog Town Canine Rescue and Safe Haven Kennel. Robin loaded them and made the long drive to Carson City for the delivery on June 30, 2008.
