In a short paragraph please provide any other details or a brief overview of your foster dog: Ducky was surrendered to the rescue while we were on a northern pull in Quebec in January, of 2022. She has been very slowly coming out of her shell ever since. Ducky spent many months in solitude (at her choice) because she was so scared of human interaction she didn’t want to be around anyone. When given the choice, she would run back to her crate by herself. Ducky had a litter of pups in March, and slowly with the smothering of her foster momma she has started to come around and somewhat (maybe) likes being around her now. She also has started to enjoy the company of the other dogs in the house. Her crate is her den, and she does not enjoy people coming and going from it, but she will accept when her foster mom comes and gets her from it and she will also come out of it on her own now when shes called. Any little thing that scares her, she’ll run right back in and we have to start all over again. When shes on the couch relaxing, she has her ears up and her tongue out. Ducky needs an extremely patient and dedicated adopter to give her everything she deserves. When Ducky’s limits have been pushed too far, she will bite. She is not biting to harm you, she is biting you to back off. She has so much potential if she could find the right home with patient people to allow her to heal at her own pace. She is also adorable and has the SOFTEST fur!
