Gertie, like many of our other dogs, has come from a Romanian kill shelter. Unfortunately due to lock down and travel restrictions, she got stuck there for a lot longer than we had originally planned. After a long 2-3 years wait, she finally arrived at Oawkood November 2023.
Gertie is clearly very scared of humans and this is completely understandable after what she has been through. She would've endured mistreatment and neglect on a daily basis so it will understandably.
It will take time for Gertie to learn to trust people but she is already showing signs of wanting to interact with us by slowly coming forward for a sniff and taking treats around us. It will be a long journey but a very worth while one.
