From the start, Delilah had been protected by angels. A woman from another rescue group was picking up a dog from her breed. She had noticed two dogs in a corner and asked about their future and was told they had none! She asked if she could have them and was told, yes! This is how Delilah came to CPCRN.
March 12, 2005: Delilah is still extremely shy but sweet; when she looks at you with her beautiful brown eyes, your heart just melts. We are moving very slowly with her so as not to overwhelm her with too many new sights, sounds, people & pups. At 21 pounds, Delilah is slightly overweight but looks heavier than she really is because she has a thick coat with a very soft undercoat. She has beautiful coloring / markings; darker head and ears with a light wheaten body. Delilah LOVES to be groomed whether we brush her or use the Mars comb; she is most comfortable & content at that time.
March 22, 2005: We had Delilah outside today as well so she could meet, real up close and personal and not between baby gates, our other 3 Cairns. A very successful meeting; lots of sniffing (even Delilah got her nose involved), checking out body parts and most importantly, NO problems! We will now continue to have them all spend more time together as each day goes by.
Delilah has made the most progress in allowing us to touch & pet her. She is still very hand shy but as long as you approach her slowly & from the front, she loves to be petted & scratched and brushed. It is going to take some time to get her to trust but we will just take things one baby step at a time.
