There's been a lot of controversy surrounding Lena Dunham's decision to re-home her rescue dog, Lamby. Now, the dog trainer who spent a year working with Lamby in Los Angeles is chiming in.
Matt Beisner, who runs The Zen Dog, spent a year working with Dunham and her dog when his behavioral issues started getting out of control. In a statement to People, Beisner defended Dunham's "painful decision" to give the dog up.
An Instagram post by Dunham announcing her decision to re-home Lamby sparked controversy when a spokesman for BARC, the Brooklyn-based animal rescue the dog was adopted from, disputed Dunham's claims that the dog had been abused and had exhibited aggressive behaviors.
Beisner says Lamby's change in behavior isn't all that uncommon.
