Belle came into our care a short while ago. We don’t know her past but this sweet girl needs some TLC. She’s weary of strangers and loud noises so when you come visit her at the RHSPCA don’t be surprised if she barks and acts unfriendly. One of our staff or volunteers who have already made friends with her can get her out to introduce you to her.
She’ll need a special person who understands that her barking and distrust of strangers is due to her underlying fear. She’ll do best in a home without young children or a lot of visitors. It will take some time for her to build trust with her new pet parents. Having a separate area or room in the house for her will help her acclimate. Ongoing training and socialization to build her confidence will do wonders for reducing her stress and distrust of strangers.
If you feel you may be able to provide what this girl needs, please make an appointment to come meet one of our staff to learn more about her.
