When Amy came to us a few months ago, she was incredibly fearful and unsocialized after running loose in a small town most of her short life. People were very scary to her and she didn't really know how to be a dog. She is still skittish at times even with her fosters, but she makes progress every day! She now excitedly comes up for pets though she isn't much of a snuggler, yet. She is a smart girl who is learning how to dog and is working on her confidence.
Amy's furever home needs at least one confident and playful pup that she can bond with and learn from. She also needs patient, loving, and understanding humans who will be dedicated to giving her time to adapt to a new home, new people, and a new routine. It will take work, but earning her trust will be one of the most rewarding and heartwarming feelings you will ever experience. She also needs a secure 6ft fence for her safety and security.
Adopting fearful dogs is not for everyone, and that's okay, but it is important to understand that time, patience, and stability are necessary to allow Amy to thrive. This may even mean multiple meetings before taking her home. She's just waiting for the right family to give her a chance!
