Her stress extended beyond the home. She did not like walking on a leash as she was used to running around free. She did not want to go through doorways or go down stairs – as both were unfamiliar to her. She would pee every time she encountered another dog. She would even bark and try to run away from her reflection. She would scurry away from people, especially men.She would freak and jump around trying to escape her leash every time she heard a car, truck or motorcycle. She was terrified of her new world.
