Operation Shy Dog: Day One

Echo came to us not long ago, and he is terribly afraid. He has the kind of fear that won't let him make eye contact, keeps his ears flat, and tail tucked. When walking, he keeps very low to the ground. We moved him from the hubbub of the adoption center floor, to a quiet back office, where he is going to hang with me for a while.

So far, he has not moved from his bed, not touched his bone, and shrinks when I try and pet him. But that's OK, we'll ride it out together, no matter how long it takes.

Life is all about timing...
the unreachable becomes reachable,
the unavailable become available,
the unattainable...attainable.
Have the patience, wait it out.
― Stacey Charter
