One week ago my husband and I adopted a 4 yr old female Boxer (previously a breeder dog in a puppy mill). She is a sweet, frightened girl. She has grown close to me but is very scared of hubby. She won't eat when he is home, shakes when he is around, hides, etc. She will allow him to sit next to her on the couch but that's it. Also, she fears coming in from the back yard. I often carry her back in the house. I worry that she feels forced and that is hindering her ability to grow confident, comfortable, etc. I have the patience, maybe need more knowledge.
