She's a sweet, lovable, gentle, somewhat shy dog who takes a minute or two to warm up to you - but once she does, she turns into your best friend.
When Clary came into our rescue, she tested positive for Lyme Disease and anaplasmosis (another tick-borne illness). She also was very sensitive about her hind quarters being touched. One of the symptoms of tick-borne illnesses is sensitivity like that, as well as stiffness in the limbs - and once she was treated, she became much more able to deal with being touched in that area.
She had also been shuffled around a good deal and needed to settle in and relax. She has been in a wonderful foster home for some time, and she is SO happy there! She loves playing with her foster family's dogs and running in the yard.
Initially shy, particularly of men, she has not only warmed up to her foster dad - he has become "her person".
We are so proud our our little girl!
Clary will do best in a fairly quiet home, without a lot of new people coming in and going out.
She needs to be in a home with adults or older children (13 years old or older) as the loud noises and quick movements of small children make her nervous.
Clary will make an absolutely awesome family member for a family able to give her a little time to settle in to her new environment and relax.
Once she does that, she will truly become a velcro dog!
