It helped me for whatever reason to wear boots at first. In my mind less of me would get bitten! Sophy doesn't bite or bark with people. So she is pretty quiet in the house. However, she is fearful of other dogs or feels the need to protect herself. Sophy is from the Harris County Animal Shelter. No one really had a history since she was just found near the shelter. But we knew that the owner probably couldn't take care of her anymore. She was potty trained and house trained.
I do turn 40 in a couple of days, so it feels nice to finally get over that fear...even if with just one dog!
