Sophie was brought into the shelter because she bit her owner, and was quarantined. She was very terrified at the shelter and would lash out in fear or crouch at the back of her cage. From her behaviors, we strongly believe that she was badly abused. It took her foster mom 6 months before she could pet her beyond her shoulders without her trying to bite. Sophie has had a lot of kindness and therapy. She rarely bites and will catch herself when she thinks she might by closing her mouth gently. She is still very afraid of new people, but accepts kindness and gives love to her close family circle. She was adopted by her foster.
