Sadie the lurcher
Sadie came to us, wetting herself in fear of anything that moved or made a noise. She was clearly traumatised and seemed to be in a constant state of panic. She was afraid to eat, drink, move, go out to the toilet, and definitely too afraid to bark. Thankfully Sheree took her in to foster. Sheree has amazing experience with scared lurchers. With the help of her new brothers and sisters, Sadie grew curious and we began to see her behaving like a dog should. 9 months after arriving to us, she is regularly going for walks with us and the rest of the dogs where she does zoomies and plays. She barks with excitement and is crazy about her grub. She still has a long way to go and we don’t think she will ever fully recover. Moving her to a new home would send her spiralling backwards. We are so grateful to her foster home to agreeing to keep her as a longterm foster because the world is a scary place for her.
