The hardest thing about adopting out a shy dog is knowing they will go through a period of fear and uncertainty as they transition into their new life. Having helped them to get to the point where they felt safe in our home with us, it’s difficult to accept that they must once again know insecurity and wariness in order to get to the same point with their new family. But it is a necessary evil, one that will challenge and make them a better dog and that will forge the bonds with their new people. And I just have to let them go and have faith that they will once again come to trust and feel safe there as they did here.
