Gentle and sweet, Alex needs and wants affection, but does not like to compete with more gregarious dogs. It is well worth the effort to work your way through the welcoming committee of free dogs to Alex's hiding place by the storeroom and coax her out for some attention. A perfect example of what the efforts of a volunteer can do, one insisted that Alex come out of the storeroom and go with her for a walk in the sanctuary. Alex was so terrified at first that she had to be carried back to the storeroom, but day by day she grew braver. After a few weeks, what a surprise it was for us all to see Alex on the other side of the sanctuary, bravely running up the path without a leash. She is still afraid of thunderstorms and stay's close to Ahmet's room when it rains, but this sweet little dog is coming out of her shell. She benefits enormously from the regular attention. It is always a wonderful when one of our dogs gets a foster family, but for Alex, this was one of the most important days of her life, a dream come true.
