Contrary to what people believe, it’s not all rainbows and sunlight at animal shelters.
They’re not better off at sanctuaries.
Chloe was abandoned at the sanctuary and, as a result, is constantly scared and doesn’t trust anyone. She hides and buries her hands in a corner in the sanctuary to avoid everyone.
Shira of Animal Rescue Mission found out about Chloe through the Saving Baldwin Park Shelter Dogs Instagram account. They were wishing the previous owner will come back and get her from the sanctuary.
Or, in case they don’t, they’re asking for generous souls to foster the poor dog.
And somebody stepped up! A buddy referred Darvish to Shira to foster Chloe and eliminate her from the traumatic sanctuary.
A week and a half after the post came out about Chloe, Shira, Darvish, together with Karl, a dog trainer, went to the sanctuary to get Chloe.
At first, she didn’t wish to leave. She kept looking out of the entrance, unsure whether she must step out.
Shira took Chloe’s leash and attempted to coax her to come out. Darvish even sat down on the ground to make Chloe a little less not sure.
After a few encouraging pushes from Shira and Darvish, Chloe trusted them enough to walk out with them.
But then the vehicle came to be one more hurdle they had to cross.
When she ultimately willingly went inside the car, she wasn’t doing well. The roads they passed were quite bumpy and she got so frightened again. She tried to find a corner where she can hide but there wasn’t any.
She ended up simply curling up in the backseat with Shira, who kept caressing her.
Shira did what she could to calm Chloe down. And it worked! Quickly, Chloe was inching closer to Shira. She even provided Shira a mini-kiss!
But when they arrived at Darvish’s house, they had one more struggle.
Chloe had actually simply gotten comfy in Darvish’s car. And now, she needed to go out and go somewhere unfamiliar once again.
They really did not want to force Chloe out of the car so they waited until she wanted to step out of her own choice.
An hour later on, Chloe stepped out of the car and walked into Darvish’s house.
” We just let her roam around the house,” Darvish shared. “She found this corner in my bedroom and she just rejected to come out of that corner. So I allowed her stay for the first day which’s just how we started.”
It was a slow process for Darvish and Chloe. But Darvish was identified to get Chloe’s trust.
He placed her bed because edge so she ‘d really feel comfy. And then on the third day, he took a seat close to her. Since he worked from home, he was able to remain there the whole day with her. He wished to assure her that they were going to be alright and that he would not hurt her.
A few days later, he discovered that Chloe began to trust him and became connected to him.
She ‘d follow him all over he went. She would certainly be by his side also while he was working. Darvish knew he couldn’t offer her up currently.
