"Hi everyone, I just adopted a 3 yr old blue heeler named Jenkins! I am very very exited and have already taking to him very very much. I don't have the whole picture on Jenkins past or previous owners, but to my knowledge he hasn't ever had an owner. Also, he has spent his life escaping from shelters/fosters and has never really bonded with someone. He doesn't have a single ounce of aggression in his body or barely makes a noise! Now, I'm in the first week of adoption and looking for pointers on how to gain his trust in me and let him know he is safe and sound! Also, since he is afraid of cars, loud noises, other dogs and such, he doesn't feel comfortable going on walks. Do you think it would be best to grow his trust before we start going on walks/hikes? Keep in mind his track record of escaping and running away, but I feel bad keeping him inside all day! Thank you so much for ANY and ALL pieces of advice!"
