Female, 6 years old
Dana came to us from a commercial breeding facility and is very, very scared of everything. She has been in a foster home for several months and has made some wonderful strides, but has a long way to go. Breeder dogs need to have a spot they consider their “safe place”, away from the action of the home where they can retreat.
MUST HAVES IN A FOREVER HOME:
A stable mentor dog permanently in the home– one that she can follow and watch to know what things are ok and not scary.
Someone who is home more often than not. Breeder dogs have accidents but can’t be confined since this is very scary for them.
A fenced in yard – fearful dogs are afraid of leashes and need to have a fenced in yard for potty breaks and the freedom to roam around. Many of them are different dogs when outside.
