Hi Adam! Have you tried marketing her to adopters as a "dog for your dog?" Make sure her bio is really good at highlighting her strengths. I've had several fosters whose behavior sounds similar to Pickles, and all were adopted to people who had other dogs that needed a companion. The most recent, Doris, had just begun to approach us for a pet or two. I wasn't hopeful about her chances of finding an adopter quite yet, but then a woman inquired about her. She'd had two dogs, and one had passed several months before. Her remaining dog had sunk into a bit of a depression, and she was worried. She wanted to find him a companion right away, but it was the holidays and adoptions had picked up. She'd found the perfect dog several times but all had been adopted right as she inquired. Anyway, she ended up coming over one day and sitting in our yard for hours while I told her about Doris. She was incredibly patient and understanding as Doris slowly became confident enough to get within a few feet of her. We did a lot of adoption counseling/talking about how to manage her while they were getting to know her (use a drag leash the first week, how to slowly help her get comfortable walking on a leash, etc.) and they ended up adopting her. She's now their other dog's BFF! I'm happy to chat further if needed-- you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
