Back story:. Leah and her brother were brought into a shelter in Bexar County. They were both feral and it has taken some time for them to come around. They lived in separate foster homes for several months and they have recently been put back together. Liam grew much faster and he is now helping Leah catch up.

Foster comments: She was timid/afraid when she got here. She needs a special patient adopter to help her become the dog she is capable of being. Calm, patient and willing to work to gain her trust one step at a time. A calm natured dog companion who will also help show her the ropes.

She slowly is learning to trust up and now will let 2 people pet her. But it takes her a while to trust someone. And she is still shy. But, I think with a lot of one on one time she would open up a lot.
