Aisin was a feral (wild) dog living outside a factory in London, Kentucky. Born in the wild, she had no social interaction with humans. Factory workers left food scraps outside for her until the factory owners decided to have her shot. A local animal rescue organization, Homeward Bound Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation, trapped her to save her from being killed. Aisin arrived at the rescue frightened, unsocialized and missing much of her fur from mange. She was scared of the kennel environment and was transferred to World Animal Foundation for rehabilitation. Aisin arrived terrified of humans and hid under a bed for several days, refusing to eat or even move. She trembled and defecated if anyone came close to her. After several days she began to come out of hiding for food and water at night when no one was around. After several weeks she slowly began to take treats from humans. After a month she gained the courage to go outside during the day and slowly began interacting with other dogs. Aisin is now house broken, plays with other dogs and follows humans around. She begs for treats and now plays with toys. She will let her caretakers touch her, but is still shy and cautious. She is terrified of a leash but volunteers are slowly working to leash train her. She needs a patient family willing to continue to work with her. Whoever adopts her will need to understand that she'll probably start off shy and timid. She's very gentle, likes other dogs and does well with cats. Aisin is about 5 years old, spayed, wormed, current on vaccines and microchipped. Her hair is almost all grown back in and is now soft and shiny. Aisin is a special dog who deserves to live. She is very low maintenance and will require a fenced yard and other dogs to interact with. Her adoption fee is $150.00.
