My daughters new rescue , Very Proud

My daughter has been wanting a dog of her own . Today we found a white German shepherd and she fell in love . A 3 year old female , her actions and condition lean toward previous abuse . The shelter said she was found wandering a few months ago ,she was a harder case because she is very traumatized ,she flinches and cowers every time she it touched or approached . No visible damage to her throat but she can not bark more of a screech or a wisper bark .
It's is sad she is such a beautiful dog . They also said she acts like it was kids who tormented or abused her , she tries her best to avoid small children or if cornered she goes into fear aggression . It's going to be a long road to show her the world she knew is not all she will ever know . 45 min of introductions to the pack and 3 hours of home time so far and she is sound asleep in the floor .

She only wants to be touched on her terms right now. If you move toward her she wants NO part of it yet .She will come up to my daughter or wife and let them pet her briefly . Me though she does not want to be touched by at this time . I am fine with , I what her to become more attached to my daughter than me. I will help her but she needs to know Kyndal is the one that saved her . She will love her back for choosing her eventually . It will all take time .

Not all GSDs are the touchy feely types. Most want to be close to you, but I find it more common for them to just want a pat or two and to lay at your feet than to be affectionate and want to give and receive a lot of attention.

This one doesn't even know you or your family yet, I would think it normal for a GSD not to want any attention from a stranger. She will in time.
