20 Feb 2017:
She was really shy and flinched (is that the right word? still working on my english) sometimes when touched or when there were loud noises. Did she get hit before?
But she loves getting treats and tried to crawl into my treat bag When I sat down with her and gave her treats she came into my lap.
Taking pictures was a little difficult, she either tried to eat my camera (at least she thought it was a treat) or wanted to walk somewhere else.
10 Feb 2017: Ophelia was crated 24/7 outside in a driveway. She is 1.5 years old and 39 pounds She was so scared when rescue arrived to change her life, sleeping in a cage in her own fecal and urine. Her owner failed to check on her and a good Samaritan decided it was time to help this baby, who was being trained to dog fight. She show signs of having a litter of pups, but no pups were around to be found. Ophelia is scared and will need time to be loved and to trust humans again.

in my opinion ophelia warmed up between monday and friday. she was much more confident and less frightened outside. she even rolled around on the grass for some belly rubs. so if someone takes a little time with her, she is the sweetest and friendlies t mama.
i had no issues taking something she was not supposed to eat out of her mouth.
she walks very good on the leash. i'm just not sure, if she knows commands. she waits, if you stop walking, but "sit" does not seem to be in her repertoire. as friendly and treat motivated as she is, it should be no problem to work with her.
