WHAT A STORY GRACIE HAS (AKA Jazzy from SBC #A497555)!
She waited for an adopter at SBC for over a month. During that time, she was doing well, kenneled with other dogs who were adopted, but she was overlooked. One day a kennel worker went into her kennel, and she growled and backed away, which earned her an 'Aggressive' label. Fearful would have been an accurate label; she is not at all aggressive and has never, ever bit or even fear-nipped. She is just very unsure of whether to trust you, but she has warmed up at her foster home remarkably!
The video below is at Jordan's house, the VERY NEXT DAY she was moved there. The first tail wag we've seen. We are beyond happy to see her so happy. She adores big dogs and we are not sure how she is with littles yet. She is very frightened of kids - she has never nipped at a child, but she hides when a little human is around. So she would do best in a home with kids over 16 years who are 'dog trained.' :)
One day soon Gracie will make someone a very loving and grateful life partner.
