    Bless you for adopting her and giving her a fur-ever home. Give her time and patience, and plenty of love, she will come out of her shell before you know it. A crate will help make her feel secure. We acquired a bully, (Jewel) from a breeder in Florida who had died and Jewel was crate kept. When we brought her home she did not want to leave her crate for anything. It took a few days to finally get her to come out on her own, and now she is OK and doing great. So just give your girl some time and she will come around.

    I was reading this article and I immediately thought of your post. I hope this helps you and other adopters like you.

    This is a great read for anyone adopting or thinking of adopting a mill survivor.

    Thank you so much for rescuing her ... it doesn't seem as if she was socialized very much so this big new world is probably a little scary to her. In time she will learn that she is safe with you and you should gradually start to see her little personality develop!!!

    Kudos for adopting a rescue. I keep trying to convince my husband that is what we need to do. Sure, there will be hiccups, but it's the right thing to do.
