This beautiful fluffy puppy came to us very scared and timid. She was afraid of any movement from anyone or anything. She was also pretty skinny under all that fluff.
Ursa is a much braver and more confident pup now, she has improved a lot in a short time, and I'm sure she will only get better and better.
This girl is still a bit confused as to what to do with all these dog toys around. Catching or chasing a ball seems a bit silly to her. And a game of tug? I don't think so! Instead gathering them ALL and hoarding them in her kennel seems more the thing to do, where a chew at her leisure feels right.
Ursa's foster sister has been trying to teach her how to wrestle and play like her, but to no avail. Maybe still a little too shy for much roughhousing.
She is quite food motivated and with the right treat she is far more willing to try new things.
I am confident she will be able overcome her shyness with the right family.
Whoever decides to bring this amazing dog into their home will have a very loyal friend.
