Even notoriously extroverted breeds, like Labs, Tiny Chihuahua, Golden Retrievers, seem to be arriving shy and skinny this week. The gray days of January are affecting all of us.

The Chihuahua in the first run of kennels is the most extreme case – as timid as she is bony. She eats food from my hand but has no interest in any further physical contact. Shies away if I reach out to her without a treat to offer. I don’t blame her; if I were that malnourished, my only priority would be to beef up.

Some dogs who suffer a prolonged period without basic needs never quite recover – physically or emotionally. I think this one will come around, though. I was shy and skinny once too. Then I found my home.
