Hi there, Dorcas here.
I really can’t wait to begin my new life in a loving and warm environment. Before being rescued I was living in an outhouse without the home comforts that I should have had access too. I developed a coping strategy when I was there which helped me to deal with the situation I was in. When I am particularly anxious or worried I resort back to this behaviour of walking in tight circles. As a result of my previous situation I lack confidence when I am in unfamiliar surroundings so I will need a calm and quiet family who can help me to come out of my shell. I can be unsure of novel objects, including dog toys, but I hope in time with a gentle approach I will soon learn to enjoy exploring new items. It certainly helps that I’m partial to a treat or two.
I am an affectionate little lady who has loads of potential and plenty of love to give. I appreciate being around humans and I take great comfort from their presence.
My new family will need to live a quiet life with caregivers who are able to dedicate time into building up my confidence. Potential adopters must have experience with nervous dogs and have a secure garden for me to play in.
