In general, Dino is scared of people, while his mother likes attention, and this probably makes Dino even more dependent on his mom.
“The mother dog is very socialized, so somewhere along the line, she’s had contact with people,” Kelley said. “She wags her tail and enjoys being pet. Dino is very skittish around people. He doesn’t show aggression, and he doesn’t growl or bear his teeth, but anytime a person comes to him, he hides under her. And he hasn’t been touched a lot — when you go to pet him, he recoils like he’s going to be hit.”
