Poor Topaz was brought in from a shelter undersocialized, but through great effort from our volunteers has made great progress in building trust. She is still shy and needs someone calm and patient to follow the lead of. Once she has warmed up to you she is a bundle of energy and would play all day if you had the time! Your time is very precious to her and she knows how to make you feel missed if she thinks you left her for too long. She becomes especially attached to people who patiently put in the time to bond with her, underneath her shyness is an exuberant and loving dog. Topaz needs someone who can give her a sense of stability and structure because she will miss you even if she has canine companions. She has done well with every dog she's met and would benefit from being in a multi dog home as seeing another dog trust you would help break the ice, and bonds easier with women than she does with men. A six foot tall fence to keep her playfulness contained all to yourself is also ideal, a privacy fence even better.
