Hennessy is a very sweet and shy girl who once she knows and trusts you, is the most cuddly and adoring dog! She was recently surrendered back to us, having some fear issues with the man in her life. Her fear is not men in general; she adores our handlers, women or men. Perhaps she is afraid of a rough and tumble kind of person, that may be a little too boisterous for her tender, mild nature. This sweet, sensitive girl needs a mellow, low action home with gentle, calm people, calm voices and lots of love. She will need patient people willing to slowly introduce her to new things.The love she will give to you in return will be priceless!
Agility training is a good tool for building the confidence of a shy dog like Hennessy. As you can see in the picture, The Shelter Connection volunteer dog handlers are always willing to go the extra mile to help a shy dog. Here Hennessy is being introduced to the tunnel!
