Upon bringing her home, she was a terrified, shy girl. It took some time for her to accept me as her person and adapt to her new home. She was very sweet and never aggressive, but extremely cautious. Slowly, she accepted me and built a trust. It was very obvious that prior to her foster care, she had very limited human contact, if any at all.
Jill had to learn how to eat from a bowl and gain confidence that she did not have to fight for her food. She quickly found out what a soft, warm bed felt like. Jill loved our daily walks and soon began to feel more comfortable around people and other dogs.
Jillian was a very special girl. I made it my mission that for her last years, she would feel safe and loved. She is, and always will be missed.
