I took in this little girl and she was also abused. The ower before me tossed her off a roof. When she came to live with us, she had a bad temper and would try to bite us. But with a bit of love and attention, we were able to calm her down. She still has a few things that scare her, we just try to be careful with them when she is around. It took about three months until she felt comfortable around us enough to relax. Time is the key here. Good luck and do not feel bad if you have a few bad days along the way.
