Serena is a shy and timid little girl. While her progress is slow, she has come a long way in her foster home. She takes awhile to trust, but has really started to open up to her foster mom, and enjoys attention from her. While in foster care, Serena is working on her potty training skills. She gets along great with other dogs and cats, and will benefit from having a confident dog in her forever home. Serena is just waiting for her perfect home where her new family understands what she has been through, and can offer her extra love and patience. Because she is considered a flight risk and does enjoy being outside, a fenced in yard is required to keep her safe while exploring.

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
