This sweet girl had a rough life before TGPR came to the rescue. She was “the mama dog” for a bad, backyard breeder and at 18 months old had birthed at least two litters that we know of. When she came to us, she was scared of everything - going belly up or cowering if you even glanced her way. In foster for the past two months she has been slowly building her confidence and learning that life can be good and people kind. Though playful with her foster “brothers”, she is still scared of most other dogs. Happy receiving affection from a new person or two at a time, she still quivers with anxiety in larger social settings. Patience, kindness and slow exposure to new experiences will be the magic for building her up more. She would do best in a calm household as either an only dog or a second to a gentle alpha. Fine with cats, not much exposure to young children. She is set to be spayed in February.

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend. The first to welcome, foremost to defend.
