Clara was rescued in Houston after Hurricane Harvey and came to Best Friends in Texas. Here at the Sanctuary, she is gaining confidence daily and is making great progress in learning to trust people. She enjoys going on walks, especially if her doggie roommate comes along. She has learned that making eye contact with Dogtown volunteers means that she gets treats, so during most of her walks she will look up at you eager for treats. Clara still doesn't enjoy too much petting, but she will touch her nose to people's hands. At Dogtown, she has learned that having more dog friends is a good thing, and she does great with introductions to other dogs. She enjoys their company and really comes out of her shell with a confident canine friend around. She would do best in a home with another dog who can be a role model for her, but she cannot live with cats. Because she is still shy and fearful with people and can jump fences, she is considered a flight risk. Clara will need to find a home with a person or family who can keep her secure and keep helping her build her confidence. Born in 2015, she has a lot of potential to grow and blossom.
