We adopted a 10 Month old Slovakian this week and she is very timid. She was given up in Slovakia and purchased in the states by a friend of mine. She didn't get along with one of his dogs and was not coming out of her shell so he decided to fine her a new home. My kids and wife absolutely fell in love with her when we went to his house and a week later she is ours. Seeing how she is on her second language second name and 3rd owner I'm not surprised shes a bit timid. She is excited about birds and loves to run free so we are going to do as much of that as possible.
Any tips on getting her out of her shell. It will take time we knew what we were getting just want to give her every opportunity for a happy life so ill take all the advice I can get.

Gorgeous dog! Keep doing what you're doing, "loves to run free." A daily variety of sights and sounds plus down time with just you and she for bonding.

Probably the best advice right there.

My brother and Sister in law recently adopted a matched pair, a Great Pyrenees and a Samoyed mix. They had been in a shelter for 7 or 8 months after their owner passed away. Lots of folks had come by offering to adopt one or another, but it was insisted they go as a pair.

The Pyrenees adapted alright almost instantly. He's friendly and likes human attention, etc. The Sammy mix took a lot longer. A month and a half after the adoption he was still very much aloof, mostly walking the yard or sitting away from humans on his bed. I saw them around Easter, and he was much better, would come up to you for ear rubs, etc...

So give it time.

A very Good Looking Dog . Looks to be well worth the time taken to bring her along ...
