Its taken this girl months to finally allow me to touch her, much less give affection. In the past 4 weeks, she has made huge strides in her confidence and trust. We went from not making eye contact, hiding behind random furniture in the basement, terrified to come inside, to this, and more.
She comes up willingly on the couch, gives little sporadic kisses, seeks affection.
She is not 100% rehabilitated, but I know she will become a wonderful companion to someone.
Feral dogs are not the easiest, but they are special to me and there's nothing like gaining their trust and watching their layers unfold. She is feral number 5 here and I'm sure there will be more.
Eris, you've come so far in a short time and I cannot wait to see you continue to blossom. 🥀
