Being shy and fearful with strangers isn’t an uncommon challenge for dogs at the Sanctuary. While some dogs may have had negative experiences with people, it’s often the case that the dog simply hasn’t had enough socialization.

So when Danica arrived at the Sanctuary, she needed help with socialization and she needed to lose some weight. By pairing these objectives caregivers were able to help Danica overcome her fear of new people and get excited about a new happy healthy life.

Today Danica meets new people with a smile and a happy tail wag. And if you want to take her for a walk, make sure your shoes are laced up and ready to go, because she sure is!
