Bella is another of our ferals. She came to us as a scared, timid and skinny chihuahua. She is from a high kill shelter in South Carolina. She was about to be killed when Oodles stepped in to rescue her. She is unadoptable because she bites when touched. If she comes up to us, she is sweet and food motivated. Probably because she was so starved when we got her. She cannot be picked up or touched to cut nails or bathe. She will tolerate head scratches, now, but only on her terms. She loves to wander around the grounds and will often be found peeking out from under bushes or deck. If a stranger is around, however, Bella will not be found.
Our sanctuary is a place of refuge for these unadoptable dogs. Because they were let down by humans in the past, they are not very trusting. At the sanctuary, they are given behavioral therapy or other treatments that give them a sense of safety. They are unavailable for adoption and will spend their lives running around an acre yard, chasing squirrels or lazing in the sun.
