Happy Tails For Della

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: March 20
Pet’s AARF Name: Della
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Della
How is your adopted pet doing? When we first met Della she was pretty terrified of most humans or sudden noises, due to her previous neglect and time as a stray. We decided that our low traffic household and local nature trails would suit her well as we built up trust and showed her some love.
After 5 minutes in our front yard, Della slipped out of her collar and ran to the woods. Thanks to Della’s amazing foster mom, Elizabeth and “Puppy” we had her back within an hour. We keep in contact for play dates, as they live nearby!
Over the past month, Della has flourished with confidence. Noises are already becoming less alarming, she enjoys “wrestle time” with us, and always eager for a good hike down a trail. Della has also discovered how great hanging out on a porch is. She’s still trying to figure out strangers, but who isn’t?
We are excited to have Della be a part of our lives and grateful for the people who help with A.A.R.F.
