Shanti: a special dog

Information:

Name: Shanti

Gender: F

Age: d-o-b: ~2009

Size: big (25kg, 55cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated, sterilised

Story, Personality, Others:
Shanti was living on the street, we don’t know for how long. She was a victim of abuse and mistreated so when she came to us she was extremely afraid of humans. It took a long time for her to adjust to the shelter and the staff but she has made a lot of progresses.
She is a lovely dog once she trusts you, she shows her affection by jumping and racing like silly! But she is not a kisser and she is not yet ready for hugs, she does however enjoy pats on the back and nose touching (yes, just like dogs do it!). She has a very calm nature but an athletic body, she doesn’t need a lot of exercise or activity but does enjoy walks, the nature, jumping and running.
Shanti is ready to be adopted but she needs a special family that is willing to accept her limitations, work with her and give her time to evolve. She will have a hard time adjusting and will need lots of treats and patience, but mostly, someone that knows she will never be a “normal” dog and just wants to save a special dog.
She would progress better in a home with other dogs, just by having canine company she feels safer. She is good with both male and female dogs, is extremely respectful with cats and will tolerate children but they do scare her. She has zero aggressiveness in her, just fear and insecurity. She is house clean, walks perfectly on the leash and travels calmly in the car
