I am "Faith" one of the Lucky 7. The vet says I am about
3-4 years old a beautiful Tri colored, smooth coat, purebred
Border Collie. My foster mom says this is a story all about
me so here it goes...
I was rescued from a horrible start in a puppy mill in
Tennessee. All the dogs lived outside, in bad weather with
little care. Even with this start, I am a soft, super sweet
girl who is trying to figure life out. I am never mean or
aggressive just fearful of life. Outside is the best, this
is what I am use to so I am comfortable, walking on a leash
is a "piece of cake" until some thing scares me then I lay
flat on the ground and wait for foster moms soothing words,
treats and off we go again.
I am very good in the house and will go to the door when
I am told it is time, I am only allowed outside with a lead
dragging since I get scared and am very hard to catch and
the doorway scares me. Some floors I cant walk on because
I slide, and I think i will fall, so I lay down again. Foster
dad carries me if I get to frighten to walk.
I don't mind my foster brothers and sister (we have quite
a few) the cats are boring to me. Sleeping in my crate or
even a bed with people is my best place and rarely have
foster mom says I am easier then those cats to take care
off. Well that's all for now, my foster mom has some more
information to give.
All My Best,
will need the most patient of dog homes, she is a work in
progress who makes very small strides. Her nature is loving
and gentle but she is scared of the world. She does love
the outside but home life is so very unfamiliar. Years of
isolation has left her with a noise sensitivity. When something
is loud or unfamiliar she will retreat to her safe spot
or just flatten. She picks areas in the house (Crate, bedroom
floor, hallway closet) to be alone.
she is brought back to busy area, we limit access to these
areas and she adjusts.
If you are a dog savvy home, with love, lots of time and
patience Faith has potential to overcome her beginnings
and conquer her fears.
Faith is being fostered in Massachusetts.
