From the Foster:
Silby is a really great girl! Right now she is very scared of people, but she is working really hard on getting more comfortable. We have had her for about a month and have seen some slight progress, but she still runs away from us and hides when we approach her. She is not aggressive at all, so you can pick her up and hold her but right now she shakes a lot when being held because she is scared.
She does get along great with both of our dogs and just seems to want to play with them. We let her out in our backyard with them and we stay inside the house to avoid scaring her. This gives her time to run around and play with our dogs and not be scared or frightened by us. I do think a home with another dog would be beneficial for her to help teach her that humans are okay.
