ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE TIME…
It took Pandora a month for her to learn to enjoy walks and know
that a walk was safe. Her fear was so great it took six months
before she could eat with another person around. She was so thin
but she needed total solitude to feel relaxed enough to eat. I knew
we were making progress when she slept on her side with her
tummy exposed and relaxed for the first time. Usually she

to trust being around so personality could finally shine through….
ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE PERSISTENCE….
My long term goal was to be able to get Pandora into the car so she could
enjoy our local dog beach. The car was a three month challenge that she
was too scared to try. It took multiple failed missions. A car is a contained
space and therefore in Pandora’s mind, not safe. Now Pandora’s favourite
place is the beach. She leaps in the car. As we drive to the beach I see her
in the rear-view mirror with her ears flapping and her tail wagging, joy on her
face. As soon as we park at the beach she starts “talking” with excitement.
Why does Pandora loves the beach so much? Because she is in control and
free. She loves crashing through the waves and running around the dogs.
The secret to helping a dog like Pandora is to respect their fears and always
make them feel safe and loved. They also need to move forward in their
fears by pushing their boundaries just a little bit each time.
“ Pandora will never be “cured”. Her first
instinct is always to be fearful while she tries to
work out whether a person or situation is safe.
She does not like change and we are always
considerate of her fears. It there are going to
be workmen around or too many visitors, she
likes to be shut away in a nice dark, contained
space until they leave. With time and kindness,
Pandora has found the joy in life because feels
safe and loved by her family.” Larissa

When they first came to meet me at Monika’s

very happy when we went for a walk on the lead.
After a while though I felt much better and later that
day we went to my new home. I was ADOPTED!
Now I love going for walks at the beach, and
playing with the other dogs in the park. I love resting
on the couch, and going to the netball courts to
watch the games. I’m very happy living with my new
family, my Mum Liesbet spoils me! I know they’re all
very proud of me and they love me very much.
