Meet Delilah

Delilah is a 5 year old female beagle mix weighing around 20lbs. She came to us from a rural TN shelter.

Note from Delilah’s foster*
“These may look like a scared dog, being scared but this is what it looks like. Rehabbing a dog that’s been lost. Lost bc people mistreated them or neglected them or both. The longer they were lost, the longer it takes for them to come around. Baby steps become big milestones. Moments that would make me sad for another dog make me smile, the kind of smile that fills my heart. Bc for Delilah being in the open with no cover to hide in is terrifying. Noises are scary (including her own pathetic, unpracticed beagle bark). Humans looking in her direction is scary. A little box with weird eyes staring at you and following you around (a phone taking pics) is BIG scary. So these pics represent the moments Delilah and I live in. She approaches for quick peaks over the couch after sniffing my foot from below. And that makes my heart explode. Even though she runs away a split second later. I sit and embroider while she darts around our family room trying to decide if it’s safe to share my space. She wants to be involved but terrified of what that might mean. She gets excited for meals, and us coming home, but isn’t sure what to do with that excitement. She’s learning that maybe today it will be okay to give just an extra milimeter of trust. And tomorrow hopefully we gain another millimeter. Eventually those millimeters add up. Until she grows in to exactly who I know she can be. She wants to play, have fun, and be loved so badly. She’s a typical beagle that LOVES food (even if she tries to hide that by waiting until we leave the room to eat). For now we will keep going with her and proving to her time and time again that some humans can help and do care about her. I will continue to use every ounce of the experience I’ve gained in 19years of working with dogs, especially “the hard ones”. In return she’ll teach me so much about her and I can apply that to the next one. We don’t talk to her much, and we give her attention by giving our other pets attention in her presence. Which may sound like nothing, but really I’m demonstrating my ability to be safe and gentle to others so that maybe one day she’ll trust me enough to let me interact with her directly. Baby steps Delilah, we will keep making baby steps.”
