Female, 3 Years Old

I am a shy and fearful dog and will need a special family to help me continue to build my confidence.  Loud noises scare me, I am afraid of the leash and going in the car and getting out.  I am slowly coming out of my shell with the help of anti-anxiety medications.  I need a patient and loving home that will understand that I may never be a happy-go-lucky golden, but I will show you how wonderful it is to see a fearful dog blossom.


  • Resident dog that will help be my mentor and keep showing me that everything is ok
  • Fenced in yard since I am scared of the leash

Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
