From the Foster: Her name is Lavinia, but around home we've been calling her Trudy for short :)

She came from a shelter so confused and didn't know who to trust...she likes dogs but humans, noises and open spaces are something she doesn't trust.

We have seen a big improvement in all departments with patience and quiet reassurance.
Her dog buddies have really helped her gain her confidence and her human supports system has brought her out of the shell she had built around herself.

Tru's new family will have to give her extra space and patience as she continues to gain ground.

Tru is such a loving girl and has allot of kisses and hugs to give. She is very playful and would love a housemate her size that she can get rowdy with. A fenced yard is a MUST as she could be a flight risk....we use two methods of restraint when she is on leash as walks are very frightening for her. She is getting much better out in the yard with all the neighborhood sounds, making it easier for her to potty outside. She is doing wonderful at night and while she is kenneled. Tru does pace and whine when she needs to go out but needs the humans to be very vigilante. For those times when it's to noisy for her to be in the yard she has access to potty pads; this for me is the best solution to alleviate undo stress which may lead to regression.

Not sure kids would work with Trudy's trust issues. She shows no aggression whatsoever but the quick action and movements would make it difficult for her. Trudy would benefit from a quiet, loving, patient home that would love her up and she could love you; of course with a dog buddy of her own.

She has so much to give and so much potential. Please fill out an application to meet this cutie.
