Darla is slowly coming out of her shell. She is coming up to us to be petted with her head up instead of down. So far she has learned the sit command when we are inside the house. She is becoming more and more comfortable in our surroundings. We have not ventured out much except our walks. She walks right next to us and will start to go to the end of the leash towards the end of our walk. She is starting to enjoy them more. She is more in her element outside. That is where she is most comfortable. She will run around, chew on bones and her kongs. She has been a bit of a stinker and is taking clothing items outside during the day. She also will chew up clothing, plastic bags and paper. She will take stuff off the table and counter too. We have a dog door which she uses when she needs to go to the bathroom. So she is now gated in the office. She has not done anything wrong when she is in there even though I have tested her by leaving stuff on the table. She is getting spayed on Nov. 13th. She is definitely a dog that will need an experienced home that will be able to help her become a confident and relaxed dog. It will take a lot of training, patience and time to give her the life she deserves.
