So, I mentioned a few posts back that I was fostering a new dog. And to be honest, this has been my hardest foster to date. She has been at my house for almost three weeks and still hasn’t really come out of her shell very much. She is pretty good with the routine that we have for her, but she is steadily wary of anything new and refuses to interact very much at all. She doesn’t even like dogs right now. She’s not aggressive at all, just shaking and scared no matter what. She eats and sleeps comfortably in her wire crate, but isn’t too happy outside of this safe space. I’m determined to work with her as much as I can and hopefully, we will have a breakthrough.
For some dogs, it’s like that. You think the dog wants nothing to do with you, and then one day it’s approaching you like it’s always approached you. So, I’m trying some new techniques this week in the hopes that she will come out of her shell just a little more. She’s a sweetie, that’s for sure!
