Laurel came to SAAP as a very very frightened girl. She would cower in the corner of her crate and not make eye contact as if hoping she would disappear from my sight.
She has been with me about 3 months and and is finally starting to trust me. While she still pulls away if I reach to pet her she does get excited when she hears my voice or when I entered the room. She actually sits up in her crate and looks at me, her tail wags and her ears perk up. If I sit quietly while she is out she will come and touch my hand with her nose but immediately retreats if I move to pet her. I have been able to pick her up and hold her and have been able to get her to relax a bit but it only lasts a couple minutes. We are looking for a patient furever home that will give her the time she needs to feel safe. She spends most of her time in her crate with the door open. (It is her safe place) She is keeping her crate clean and seems to be house trained as well. I don't believe I have heard her make a sound except for her tail hitting the crate when I get home. Apply today for this sweet girl and to experience the joy that comes with watching her blossom. She is doing well with other dogs. Cats unknown.
She is a 6 yr old lab mix and weighs about 35 lbs.
