Meet The Dogs in the Almost Adoptables Program!
Xena was a feral dog living in the woods of rural AR with Lottie. Xena was trapped first, and came to us unsocialized, but very pregnant. She lived inside our common room, in a whelping box, but would not let us touch her. We would open the door to the yard and step back, to allow her to go to the bathroom. She growled at us through fear.
She gave birth to two live pups, and was an excellent mother. At first she did not want us near, but gradually she allowed us closer and finally to touch the pups. These gorgeous fat bundles were, at 12 weeks, adopted to a family.
Xena now walks well on leash, although it can take some coaxing to get the leash on her. She remains cautious with people. She has bonded with a blind/deaf dog, Ronnie, and loves to herd him into the area where we leash them for walks. When he is in, she usually comes. She and Bobo sometimes debate who is boss.
Xena has lovely brown almond eyes, set slightly apart, making her face very regal and beautiful.
