Dogs

I'm chilling in a foster home currently. To inquire about me or to arrange a meeting, please email fosterdogadopt@orphansofthestorm.org. Sweet and shy Sybil is finally up for adoption! We can't get enough of this girl. She has had such a long road just learning how to be a dog. When she came in back in June 2020 at just 7 months old, she was so scared that she wedged herself in the back of her kennel and wouldn't look at anyone. She only ate when everyone was gone for the night. When one of our shelter managers met her, all she had to say was, "She's coming home with me." Sybil has spent the last year in foster and is working with a veterinary behaviorist to overcome her fear of the world. She is on several medications that will likely be long-term and help her feel more comfortable on a daily basis. With the help of behavior modification training and these medications, Sybil has discovered things that she LOVES! She absolutely adores other dogs and would do best in a home with another confident dog as her role model. She loves busy boxes, benebones, squeaky toys, being OUTSIDE, and cuddling with her foster mom. We are so happy that Sybil has become confident in her foster home and has learned to enjoy things in life rather than being afraid of them. However, she will need a forever home that is willing to give her ample time to adjust to her new surroundings, continue her medications, and work on the behavior modification training that her foster home has started. She will need a quiet home (not too many visitors) in a quiet neighborhood (she's not a city girl, sorry) as loud noises and new people can still be scary for her. She will need a yard to do her business in so she has time to decompress and get used to her family before going on walks with them. While Sybil would love and do best with a canine sibling, she is not suited for the two-legged kind of sibling, as children can be loud and move too quickly for her. We don't know what Sybil's past was before she came to Orphans, but we know that she has a bright future ahead of her. She is just waiting for that special family to find her.
