Carrie, our little spook, is proving to be a pretty tough nut to crack. She is a sweetheart of a dog but she is still scared of her scary foster mom and dad. She still will not approach us on her own and still cowers when we go up to her. We are making progress with her, and she is improving, but it is a slow process. We may have to call in Dr. Phil to see what is going on in her mind. She likes to be near the family most of the time, but still wants to keep her distance. She is showing more signs of wanting to fully join the family, but something is still holding her back. Time is probably the only cure. She needs to learn to fully trust us. Once she does, she is going to be a terrific dog. She is very smart, playful, and gentle. Getting her past the fear seems like it will take a good bit of time, but fortunately we have plenty of that. Carrie can stay at the Hound Hotel for as long as she needs too. We love having her around and a greyhound in need is our friend indeed. We will keep providing updates on her progress. Stay tuned.
