Our kelpie was a bit anxious when we first adopted her from the RSPCA and was very scared of my husband. It turns out she'd been badly treated by a man in her first home and it took a while for her to trust my husband and not be afraid of him. Now he's her favourite person and she always jumps on his couch to snuggle with him! Our kids love her to death and often take their mattresses into the laundry to sleep with her! She has made all our lives better and the kids love walking her and teaching her fun tricks.
