Low Rider Steele: Notes on a foster dog

Judging by her behavior, this little punkin has had a rough life: She was terrified of the outdoors, afraid of coming out of her crate, and reacted to new people by hunkering down on the floor.

Low Rider was picked up off the streets of Newport by a good Samaritan who saw her scuttling around, absolutely terrified. This person took her to Animal Control, where she went unclaimed. Steele Away Home pulled her.

Known Issues & Progress

Low Rider is eager for attention and happily wiggles her butt when we approach, but is afraid to go to anyone at first. She was also terrified of outdoors. She would not walk on a leash if a collar was used, but is doing better with a harness. She is already coming out of her shell.

She is overweight, needs a restricted diet to get that under control.

Seriously? Don’t you have a harness that fits?

You said “go out in the grass” here is grass.

But I’d rather go back to my room.
