Dogs in shelters will often have past trauma that leaves them scared and distrustful of people. Taking things slow and gentle with pups like this allows them to become more comfortable in their surroundings and unlearn their fear of others, like one family who fostered a puppy that was found abandoned. She was very shy at first, but eventually opened up to the family.
TikTok user @kimberly.corban recently shared a video of their foster journey with this pup. When the puppy was first picked up from the shelter, she was very shy and did not venture out of the carrying crate. Eventually, with a lot of gentle patience and love, she began to feel comfortable and safe enough to explore the yard and house. Check out the video to see how this rescue pup comes out of her shell with the help of two older dogs and two young children.
This is so lovely! We're thrilled that this pup is coming out of her shell, and the way she was playing and prancing around the yard with this family is so wonderful.
People in the comments love how uplifting and adorable this video is. @slaesch75 said, "Your daughter playing with her is absolutely heartwarming," and @lauraellis610 commented, "Oh my goodness, how sweet are your kids for trying so hard to be calm and quiet!" It's great how understanding and careful these kiddos are with the puppy!
