I heard a lot of commotion in the backyard and found our normally very calm and subdued foster dog, Dolly, having the time of her life. She and her mastiff foster brother have been running and wrestling ( and tracking in snow) all morning!
While this activity may seem normal to most, it is not so for Dolly. Before coming to rescue, Dolly lived her life with a backyard breeder who gave her no human interaction. When she came to our home, everything was new! It terrified this poor girl so much that we had to keep a leash on her for the first 48 hours just so we could catch her!
It's been over 2 months now, and Dolly is a completely different dog.While she will always be timid in new situations, she has really come out of her shell. She loves her foster family, the other dogs and provides comic relief on a daily basis! She is a complete love, and we hope the right family comes along who can see her for the wonderful dog she is!
