Foster Comments: Big Sis is still very timid and unsure of herself. When I walk up to her in the kennel she wags her tail and approaches the front of the kennel for me to pet her. In the yard if we try and pet her, she runs away. She was at ACS with her sister and they were very bonded. Her sister, was saved by another rescue and Big Sis was left behind. She stayed there and became depressed. The kennel staff think she is uncomfortable without her. With the right family, this girl will break out her shell and she will fully show her sweet personality. She loves to play and loves her chew toys.
