Flash’s younger years were nothing short of horrendous and as a result she is distrustful of people. This has resulted in her living stressed and in fear on almost a daily basis. So because she is highly fearful, she is a big ask for someone to take on. Her journey will not be months but likely years.
Flash doesn’t need a hero to take her on, someone who will work to make her into a ‘normal’ dog, she needs someone who will allow her to just be. Someone who will give her the time, the space and infinite patience to allow her to move on her journey to a better life. This is a huge ask and not something to take on without truly thinking it through. There are many of us in the Victoria Humane Society Family that have done it so you will not have to do it alone as Flash has an incredible support group that goes with her. These journeys of healing can be hard. It will not be a straight journey, there will be backslides and leaps forward. You will celebrate things such as the tiniest tail wag, eye contact or even a moment of play. Where these dogs end up on the scale of fearful to outgoing is anyone’s guess BUT it will be one of the most rewarding things you can do. If you have a confident easy going dog and think that you would be able to offer Flash the type of environment she will need, please fill out an application and we will contact you to discuss it more.
