Recap: Sulli arrived in our home on Friday evening 01/02/09. She has been an outside dog supposedly for about 1 year and as it has become very clear to us already she was not properly socialized. I also don't believe she was EVER kept indoors even for short periods of time. In a strange way it almost seems as though she is not really domesticated. She's not wild, but so timid and afraid of normal every day things that we take for granted that our dogs live with. That and she can't relax. She has a bunch of nervous energy and she paces and darts around but never seems to calm down at all. It isn't hyper behavior either, it is literally nervous energy. My point here is that it hasn't even been a week and she is making some great strides. She was even relaxing in the window with 2 of the other dogs today. I was so thrilled I had to grab the camera. Now granted she never closed her eyes, but at least she was laying there still and cuddling a little with the others. Perhaps there is hope that she will settle in eventually.
