Faith came to us from a situation where she was living mostly outdoors and isolated from people other than her main guardians. When she first came to us she was very nervous and cautious, but she has come a very long way while in a foster home. Faith has bonded easily with her foster mom and despite being fearful at first, has really started to settle down into a home environment. Faith has chosen her foster mom as her shield from all things that are scary to her and has shown some resource guarding with her foster mom in moments of uncertainly. Based on this we feel she is likely better suited to a single person home or a couple who are equally invested in managing and working with Faith. Ultimately, her ideal home environment would have a confident, but gentle presence to help her work through some of her fears. Faith will be a steadfast and loyal friend to someone who will see through her initial fears and open their heart to her. When she knows you she is a teddy bear and enjoys cuddles and affection. Faith is great with other dogs and will likely be ok in a home with cats as well.
Faith will need a home that is willing to work with an Animal Kind trainer to set everyone including Faith up for success in managing her needs. Faith recently had a dental and has been given a clear bill of heath.
