1 year, Female, Large Mixed Breed (Lab size)
Tulip is a very timid and shy dog that needs a very patient home to take them on. When Tulip arrived they were traumatized by the transport and hid away from us in fear. She will now come closer to us but will not yet initiate contact.
Tulip is a dog that will require time and patience to come out of their shell and learn to ‘be a dog’. They are a project but the rewards from adopting a dog like Tulip outweigh the struggles they may have at the beginning.
Tulip is a dog that has never wagged their tail at us in the rescue, she is curious of people and has started to come over to snif and lick the staff's hands but she is not confident enough to initiate further contact at the moment. When taking on a dog like Tulip you become their whole world, they finally learn to trust humans and learn that not all humans are scary.
Tulip cannot currently be touched at the rescue and so has never known a kind hand. The day that you can touch Tulip will be an incredibly special moment for you both…
Tulip is not currently lead trained as they are so frightened. Staff will advise you on how to teach them to walk on a lead when they are ready.
