My name is Valora! My name's origin is Latin meaning brave, courageous and in Spanish means flower!
Thank you for your interest in me! I want to make sure that it is clear, I am feral. I was caught in a live trap. I have only been in rescue for a little over 6 weeks and have a long way to go. I still can not go outside but I’m amazing with pee pads.
I have only let my foster parents pet me and still it is on my terms most of the time. My foster mom is unable to get a collar on me because two hands near my face still scares me and I back away when I’m uncomfortable. I retreat to my kennel when I’m unsure of the situation. My kennel is my safe zone. I am kenneled while my foster parents are gone at work and do great for up to 4-6 hours.
I have made progress but I have a long way to go. I know my name. I do not know commands, obedience, and I’m learning English. I have not been around children. I try to play with the cats but they just run from me. I love treats! I love chew toys! I love the occasional shoe. I’m beginning to want my belly rubs but it’s only when I’m higher up then my foster mom. I am still learning to trust her when she introduces new things to me.
It takes me a day to warm up to a dog but once I do, I’m inseparable and follow them everywhere. I would do best with another dog in the home to feel comfort and to keep learning. I am food motivated!
I am very excited to find the prefect forever home however I have needs. I need a 6 ft fence so I can not jump it. I would do best with another dog or dogs. It helps me adjust and feel more comfortable. I need an experience dog owner who will continue to work with me. Please only serious inquires only.
