From Reba and Sadie’s foster mom:
I really think Reba is well over 5. They are doing much better today. They ate a full dinner last night and are up walking around. I have noticed some traits Reba has but don’t want to give any false traits due to their health. Reba is truly afraid of men. She runs from them. I mean, she will keep running as long as she hears them. She has improved some but has a long way to go. Her foster father is just ignoring her so that she sees him as no threat. She will not go through the door when he holds it wide open. A man she saw last week, she ran from and was hard for me to get her to come to my arms from the other side of the fenced area. This week, she just kept her distance but stayed near. She is total Velcro to her foster mom, does not want her out of her sight. She is crate trained but not housebroken at this time. This could be due to her health issues. She has some food aggression but is able to be fed with her foster friends. Going into the vets office, she jumped out of the stroller to take off, but foster mom had her also on a leash. So when she is scared she will run. It is said she is not good with children, but we haven’t tested her yet. She does fine with cats. She is clingy to Sadie but seems to be more willing to now separate. She has been a reasonably quiet dog so far. Reba also seems to have a fear of doors. At first it was real hard to get her to walk out through a door. Sometimes she has to be carried, and sometimes there is no issue if I call her. So we are working on that along with the man issue.
