Selima is a tiny Papillon who was left at a shelter, confused, sad, and  terrified of women. She was not spayed, had a tumor, and just a few  rotting teeth left. Good veterinary care resolved her health issues, and  she now struts around proudly, leaping anything in site, and going for  long walks – OK, runs. However, her fear was harder to fix. She  instantly loved her new canine siblings, and accepted her foster dad,  but all women terrified her. When scared, she has a scream that would  make Janet Leigh proud.

Through patience, love, and gentle  encouragement, she slowly became devoted to her foster mom. While she is  still a little shy, you will often find her at ODH events these days,  wiggling and wagging, eating up the attention. Her gorgeous, liquid  brown eyes never leave her beloved foster mom, who named her. Selima, in  Arabic, means safe. And she is.
