I am looking for a special home, not one that wants to fit me into their mold but rather just likes who I am. I came in with a group of very under socialized dogs, none of us had been handled as puppies, so I don’t look at human contact the same way a normal pet dog would. I am now drifting into my senior years and hope I can find a nice retirement home who will appreciate me even if it takes time for me to build trust.
A note form my foster mom! “She has made great progress from her days as a feral dog, but she still requires a calm, well managed environment. A rural setting is a must. She needs a fenced area for exercise and needs to be on leash at all other times. City noises, traffic, too many people are too much for her and she will default to running away blindly. She requires another dog or dogs in the home as Tynder follows the lead of other dogs. She would prefer a cat in her home as well, but this is not essential! Her people have to be patient and okay with the fact that she does not enjoy to be touched. She is a challenge to groom as she has a very thick and difficult coat. It isn’t an ideal combination – a dog who hates to be touched and a coat of fur that grows like bad weeds. She is housetrained, loves food, and is content to sit quietly with family.”
