RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Though observed to be human-social, Heaven may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Heaven to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.
