A staff member writes: Rylee is a 2 year old hound mix! She is very energetic, lively and affectionate. After being returned by her family, Rylee shows a lot of fear towards men. She will bark at them as a warning and then hide behind a person she trusts. Rylee is not an aggressive or a mean dog, she is just terrified that men will hurt her. One of our male staff members gained her trust just after a few days and she absolutely loves him! Once you gain her trust she is 100% loyal and will love you forever. Her perfect family is one that would be willing to work with her on gaining confidence and understand that she is just scared of being hurt. She will need to enroll in obedience classes to help her learn some manners and help her feel more secure and safe in her 'pack'. She is really a great dog and just needs someone with some patience and a kind heart. Contact us to schedule and meet and greet today! Her adoption fee is $145.
