Hey everyone my name is Derek and about three weeks ago a beagle manged to get into our backyard , every time we would attempt to catch her she would get away. Everyday food was left for her beside our other smaller dogs and we eventually caught her. She has gained some gained weight and not as skinny as when we found her. But she is afraid of people and tries to hide when we approach her , but she does come out and is curious when we enter the backyard and watches us but runs when we try to play with her. We have carried her and at times shes fine and other times she has tried to jump out of our arms. Our other dogs are fine with her sleep and play together. I need some advice on how i can go by this situation i have rescued a dog off the streets before and haven't had this problem before and understand all situations are different. Is there any toys, snacks , etc... that can help get her attention ? all advice is appreciated to make the situation better for her . thank you :)

Thank you for giving her a home! I have had two very spooky dogs. The first was my greyhound Jake who no one wanted to adopted because he was so abused and scared. Then we got Molly, our beagle, who was caught running in the streets. Both Jake and Molly feared pretty much everything but wanted to be part of the family. Time does really help and she will start to trust you. She might pick one family member latch onto. Molly and Jake were more comfortable with me than with my husband and other men. She might like some soft squeaky stuffed toys to play with. Training sessions are great too, one on one with yummy little treats.
