Rhys was totally unsocialized for the first 4 years of his life, which he spent in a pen in the woods along with about 60 other dogs. When he first came into rescue several months ago, he was terrified of anything and everything, and I was unable to touch him for two weeks. He was originally bought from a breeder in Texas.
Since then, he has made tremendous progress, although he will always be a highly nervous, noise sensitive dog. He now trusts people, although is more comfortable around women, and he enjoys daily walks on leash. He is afraid of many things still, above all loud noises, raised voices, and anyone who appears to threaten him.
