She was first brought into the shelter as a stray in early May. "When she first came to us, she was extremely shy," Lickteig said. "She wouldn't come up to people or even leave the kennel unless a shelter technician physically picked her up and carried her wherever she needed to go."
Eventually, Ms. Jane came to trust and develop such a strong relationship with shelter staff that she had a hard time "selling" herself to potential families, Lickteig said, because she was always focused on keeping close to the shelter technicians. During an adoption event in late June, Ms. Jane finally found a home - or so she thought.
