Cordelia can be a really sweet, silly girl. But people only see this side of her when she's in her comfort zone beside her best dog buddy. He helps give her a lot of confidence, and she is more willing to try new things if he's with her.
Cordelia was born in 2012. She is really smart and excels at training - especially when food is involved. She's become a rock star at agility at the Sanctuary.
Because Cordelia is a very shy dog, she can be shutdown and extremely nervous when out of her comfort zone. She doesn't like being touched by people and probably never will be comfortable with that. If she becomes uncomfortable and feels trapped in the situation, she will defensively snap.
Cordelia would do best in a relaxed, structured home with a very patient person or family who understands her personality and accepts her for who she is. A home without many visitors would be best. When there are visitors, she would be most comfortable staying in a quiet room so she won't be forced to socialize. She'll also need a confident dog buddy who will be a good role model for her.
