When Cole was in school, he wasn’t the best student really. He was trained by the best – our volunteer George – all the way since he was 2 months old (hence, since kindergarten) but still.. Ok we are being unfair, let us explain. Cole for some reason, never learned to trust unconditionally. He does of course trust his foster dad, and some volunteers, but he doesn;t trust anyone he’s never met before. So when you first meet him, don’t expect wagging tail and smiley faces. Nope. Cole will sit around in a corner, looking at you as if you are a suspect. His trust and his love will come eventually, but in time, with patience and consistency. He has never been abused, or mistreated, he always had everything he needed, he is just this way because of his character and nothing else. He was born shy, and he will probably always be shy with new people, but of course not with his new family.
