Shera is a very shy dog. I opened her kennel door and I sat quietly for ten minutes before she would come out to say hello. The whole time she exhibited submissive behaviour - looking away, sniffing the floor, retreating. Once we finished our walk and she got to more used to me, she became quite affectionate and demanded a seat on the bench beside me and there we sat in the afternoon sun watching the people go by.
