Jack Russell was abused

by Gloria Brown
(Toms River New Jersey )

I rescued a 4 year old Jack Russell that was abused. At first she peed all over my house until I eventually showed her it’s not acceptable inside. Now she’s a very smart and good dog but I don’t trust her. She’s bitten me out of fear at least 5 times and recently went for me while she was sleeping and I just wanted to pet her good night. She used to stay in her crate at night but she likes the living room I’m guessing since the two entrances are right where she’s decided to sleep at night. She just turned 6 and for some reason she trusts me but not 100%.
Anything I can do differently?

Thanks
