Cute Rylee was brought into a local high risk shelter after her last human passed away. The shelter is a scary place for most but for a small pooch used to a home with a person that loved her, we can only imagine what went through her mind, which showed through her actions. Rylee was acting out in the only way she knew how to protect herself, and that was trying to not allow people near her by being nippy, growly and showing big whale eyes. She didn’t stand much of a chance getting adopted that way so PLDP pulled her. Trying not to let the same behavior start foster mom went super slow with her. After a few days Rylee finally decided to come out of her crate with the help of her foster brother, and she continues to get braver and come out of her shell more every day. Rylee was spayed 4/5 where she displayed the same behavior in that cage as she did in the shelter, so it’s really going to take a special home to continue to build her trust in humans by slowly. Because she has a few nips under her belt, we are recommending a home with no children. We are still learning about Rylee and she does live with other pups, but she doesn’t get along with everyone, so she is dog selective, as of now. She is also being introduced to cats and that seems to be going well. She is not a huge fan of the crate but she is learning to go in and settle when it’s bedtime. She also uses the PP pads, and does go potty outside too. She hasn’t played too much with toys, she has picked up a tiny Kong ball a few times, so she does have it in her to have some fun, she has enjoyed chewing on bully sticks. Our vet seemed to think she is just over 2 YO, and she weighs about 8 pounds. If you think you are a good fit for our Rylee, please go to our website www.pldpaws.org and complete an application.
