When ABBEY, about 4 years old, came to C.L.A.W.S. in the summer of 2014 she was deeply traumatised. She had had no interaction with the human race and rejected any attempt to connect with her.
Over the last three years there has been some improvement but she has remained very shy.
Recently she had to have a dental, and so she could have peace and quiet to recover, we put her in a pen on her own.
The change was amazing ! She started to greet her carers when they came to see her and then she extended her neck for a stroke and pushed her head into their hands. It wasn’t long before she was out of her "bedroom” and taking an interest in what was going on around her.
She needs a quiet indoor home with an experienced owner who has lots of time to spend with her and will let her settle into her new environment at her own pace.
