It sounds like your small dog has been through a tough time! It can be difficult to rebuild trust after a traumatic experience, but it is possible.
The best thing you can do is to show your pup lots of patience and love. Spend plenty of time together, whether it’s going for a walk, cuddling, or just playing.
Show them that you can be trusted, and don’t be afraid to give them plenty of rewards and praise when they display positive behaviors.
With time, your pup will learn to love and trust you again.
