I met Enzo while he was in foster at a private boarding facility. I work with scared and undersocialized dogs at the Pima County shelter, helping them to become more confident and adoptable. Enzo was typical of the dogs I work with. He didn’t trust humans and would avoid them if he could. When eventually cornered he would tremble in fear. No one had been able to get a collar on him. It was hard to imagine him being adopted– most people want a dog they can interact with– or his being successful if he was. He needed help. So I decided I would visit my new friend Enzo a few days a week.
I think here he looks curious, yet suspicious.
