08/27/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Surrendered to our care as her person is moving where Seven is not welcome, we’re told that Seven is fearful and barks at people she doesn’t know. We’re all strangers here and indeed Seven barked at me when I opened her kennel but allowed me to leash her. She walks with her tail tucked, it’s clear she’s uncomfortable. We’re told that she’s housetrained and she did potty the moment we were out the door. Seven and I walked to the park chatting about the hot and humid weather, the people getting ready for their weekend, and the amount of traffic on First Avenue. Her leash manners are good, and when we stopped in the park to rest she stood in front of me just watching me. Gradually coming forward for a treat she took one gently from my fingers but when not to her liking spit it out. Sudden moves make her nervous and as this was our first time meeting I didn’t attempt to pet her. Seven needs socialization as she’s a fearful dog and apparently was the same with her owner, it’s not her abandonment that has made her this way. She’s a beautiful girl who will need a lot of dedication from a new person to help her adjust to life in general.
