The Good Stuff first...Miss Dolly has perfect manners, no counter surfing, no food aggression, no accidents in the house, doesn't get up on the furniture, goes into the crate when asked, doesn't chew or destroy anything, is mesmerized by the movement on the TV (but never asks for the remote), is not a drooler, and basically has a chilled out personality.  This is a perfect dog for a family with older kids who are willing and committed to gaining her trust.  Without going into a lot of detail, Dolly came from a one owner home of an elderly woman who sadly enough was being overcome by dementia and was being abusive....by slapping her in the face as a means of correcting her. We all know what that leads to and when she first came here she was EXTREMELY hand shy, to the point of snapping at my hands. Needless to say that behavior has slowly waned with a lot of verbal, soft spoken, encouraging words while stroking her head, muzzle and her ears. Her response to a loving touch has been very rewarding and positive. She is not an aggressive dog just a very anxious one. A trip to the vet last week for a distemper shot/blood draw started out very encouraging but slowly digressed to a complete state of anxiousness. I think there were just too many "females" coming at her. (Vet, Vet Tech and me) Her ears were flipping back, her eyes started following all the hands that were touching her so in the interest of safety I muzzled her. She was sitting in front of me with her body up against me and her front paw was on top of my foot VIBRATINGGGGGGGG. Then her whole body was shaking which showed me we still had a lot of remedial work to do. Even my Ceasar is in on the therapy plan...he has been making repeated attempts to get Dolly to get a little boxer crazy and joust with him. This girl is on the road to shedding her past and if you are interested in being part of a "true rescue" please step forward and be part of a great success story.

This dog was surrendered by an elderly owner who is growing incapable of taking care of this dog. Dolly has had a limited exposure to other dogs, kids, walking on leash, riding in a car, being around lots of other people. BUT.....inspite of her lack of exposure she is getting along very well with her 2 new boxer friends, has been riding in the car (she prefers the back seat to the front seat), is getting through introductions to visitors with much patience and perseverance. I think she feels like she has gone from living on a remote island to being dropped in the middle of Times Square. So we are taking everything at a slow-mo pace and she is blossoming more and more everyday. To me this is the best part of fostering a dog....watching their reactions to all this "new stuff" and her very inquisitive nature to check everything out. More to come in a few days and after our first trip to the vets for a checkup.
