Mams was feral, traveling with a small pack of dogs when we first saw her. After the majority of her pack decided to live with us, she remained aloof but would not be far from view. It took a year and half before she agreed to honor us with her presence and that was five years ago. Now she only goes out into the acre to sun herself or to take care of her daily needs. Then it's back inside to lay on her blanket. She is a sweetheart and although she avoids other people, she loves us and for that we are grateful.
