Arriving at the rescue, Sylvia was wary of all the new people and the strange environment. It was clear that life as a stray had made her hesitant to trust, but it hadn’t broken her sweet nature.
“When we first got her she was very shy, nervous [and] scared of what might happen to her,” Russell said. “She was very unsure of life.”
As her skin healed, Sylvia began to bond with her rescuers, and even show off a little. It seemed there was no challenge the dog couldn’t master. She flew through her obedience classes and loved car rides and walks — and her happy disposition.
“She is such a smart and loving girl,” Russell said. “She loves to play with other dogs, and adores kiddos. Her confidence is great now!”
