hello everyone!!!
I am new here and a new mom of a 2 year old male tri color cavalier. Whom I adopted, he is so sweet and yet very scared. He never get the socialization he needs, he lived in a crate all his life. I adopted him 1 week ago, and since then, I am in love with him. I am just so worried because, he is so scared still. Every loud noises he hides and when you reach and pet him he backs out a little. I am hoping someone can give me advice on how to get him open up to me and my family.

icon_welcomeHi and a warm welcome
It's just going to take time for your little lad to come around and it's very early days for him after just a week,small steps at a time but he'll get there, it's great you've took him and give him a lovely home, well done
Just keep talking to him and let him go at his own pace
