Unlike Coby's former family, Fritz is happy to find workarounds to keep her garbage inside the trash can. “My personal dogs have ALWAYS been trash diggers and we as a family have come up with creative ways to help with that behavior,” Fritz said. “This is what a family should do when they own dogs — not dump them in a shelter. The entire story just broke my heart.”
Now after nearly a month in his foster home, Coby is adjusting to his new life little by little. He is still too frightened to go outside on his own, and has to be carried in and out of the house. But he’s taking baby steps in the right direction, eating treats from his foster mom’s hand, walking a bit and chewing on his bones.
