Hello everyone ! My partner and I adopted a 3-year-old female Cane Corso from a shelter. We do not have access to her past, we do not know who took care of her or what is the reason she was in the shelter. All we know is that she was in an isolator room in a dog clinic for 2 days before being taken from there into the shelter and then into our home. She is a gem. After a few days she has now gotten used to us and knows the basics, she knows not to pee / poo inside, only outside when on a walk. She knows she must not beg for food from the table, or steal any for that matter. She knows basic commands like sit and paw. I thought her to lay down and to get up. She got used to her new name, and sort of responds to stay and come. Issues are, we are living in an apartment, and buying a house is a few years away still. While Tera(that's what we called her, since none knew her previous name) seems to be having a good time, adapting well to the situation and being a very polite and disciplined dog - her respect towards her owners (us) is crossing the border of simply being scared/afraid of us. I feel like I can see the fear in her eyes still, every time she looks up to us. She only gets really excited (wiggle her tail, bounce up and down, swaying left and right with the body) when we get back home from being away for an hour or two (or more, which hasn't happened so far) or when she does not like the food we have served her and she is trying to beg for something else. I would like to teach her how to play with her toys and potentially take it to a fetching game. But she shows no interest in playing with toys. None. I have no idea how to excite her into taking interest with a toy, and after she has done that I can start working from there towards a fetch game. She seems quite afraid of a lot of things really, apples falling from a tree while we were on a walk ended up in a jump-scare. A return home during night time scared her of her own shadow from the flashlight. Every time a car drives close to the boardwalk she just runs to the other side and keeps looking over her shoulder in almost like a panic state. I really want to help this dog feel better, more confident and help her have fun with a fetch / tug game. So I am here for advice / tips on how to handle the situation.
