At first, Manuka was wary of everyone at the sanctuary — the other dingoes, as well as the people.
“She was very distant, and wouldn’t engage,” Said told The Dodo. “She wouldn’t even make eye contact. She would soil herself if people approached her or touched her, and she would stare into space and not move, pretending she wasn’t there.”
But with a bit of time, as well as a hearty diet of raw meat, eggs and fish and weekly skin treatments, Manuka became a different dog.
