Unfortunately, some of the older dogs are still showing signs of emotional trauma and anxiety. But with a bit of time, in experienced foster homes, Stringer is confident they will start to come out of their shells.
Another potential issue the dogs may face is housebreaking.
“They’ve grown up going to the bathroom all over the house, so they will definitely take a lot longer to be trained to go outside,” Stringer said. “Our experienced fosters will start working with them on that.”
