When the shop opens again the next day, Eva is always happy and eager to see people.
"Eva is about as sweet as can be despite her terrible ordeal," Taylor said, "calm, patient, smart, friendly. It’s hard to imagine the circumstance that would lead someone to abandon such a special dog."
The only trouble is that Eva's solitary life hasn't given her the chance to socialize with other animals. "There's so much that's new for her," Taylor said. "She doesn't really know how to react around other animals — she's great with people — super sweet and docile. But when she's walked, she has energy and that puppy instinct."
"She just hasn't had the chance to be a dog," he added.
