Xanthe is one of the most nervous shut down dogs I have seen. She has palled up with Champ who is a great support for her. When she first came she would not eat when a human was present but now she is accepting treats from the hand though still nervous about eating in front of you. She is very intelligent and obedient and will walk on lead with you, but if there is a sudden noise or movement she is ready to bolt. She is on high alert all the time. She is starting to make eye contact and accept soft touches as well as ear cleaning though never seeks human affection. She is a sweet gentle girl who needs a very experienced person with behavioural training and a calm quiet lifestyle. She is looking for a person willing to meet her a few times and build that trust with her. She has a short coat and weighs 19.8kg.
