Billy is a very sweet, shy little dog who has had no interaction with humans in the first three years of his life. As you can imagine, living with people in a house has been very scary, but Billy has been so brave! He has decided to make small leaps of faith every day, and this is how far he has come in just 7 days:
Day 1: completely stiff and refused to walk, with low ears and tail tucked between legs. He looked so scared!
Day 2, 3, 4: Decided that people aren’t all that bad. He will roll over for a belly rub, and walk up the deck stairs to look into the kitchen. When he’s outside by himself, he will play with toys and drag blankets around the yard but will run if you try to catch him.
Day 5: He actually wagged his tail when I came home from work, and will come back into the house if you leave the door open.
Day 6: he licked my hand and walked toward me for a treat. Day 7: Will sit on the couch and look out the window!
Although he still has a long way to go, Billy is a very smart, adorable little guy who has figured out that living with people in a cozy bed with regular meals, toys to play with and belly rubs is a pretty good life!
