Miniature Littlefield Sheepdog Q&A
Often times rescue dogs take awhile to adjust to their new surroundings. If you can get her to start playing with you in the house that will help her feel comfortable. I`m not sure what kind of food you feed her, but you can try getting some tasty canned food, treats and bones. Any of those should help increase her appetite.
None of my dogs have gone to shelters so if you were told it was one of my dogs I am sorry. I cant speak for breeders i no longer work with. They should not be using my family name or continue breeding if they are not with me. But, I will help if i can.
