My foster mom absolutely loves me – she tells me all the time that I am so special. But I have some quirks. I arrived into rescue a very very shy boy and really afraid of all people. For that reason, I will do best in a home without little kids. I need a home that is patient and understanding and is willing to let me warm up at my own pace. If you give me the space and time to acclimate – I will be a very loving dog. I’ve been in my foster home for 2 months now and I am just coming around to enjoying receiving pets and affection. I will now take treats from her had (really anyone’s hand now)!! HUGE IMPROVEMENT! But if you try to approach me, even just to pet me under my chin, I will run! I am trying to trust, and I want to trust, but I’m just not 100% there quite yet. I will need a home with another dog – one that is pretty relaxed is ideal as I take all of my social cues from other dogs. And I really really love other dogs! Especially when they like to play! I will need a home with a secure yard – if I get spooked (which can happen easily) I will escape if I can. (You see my first instinct is to run from anything that makes me nervous). I do walk very well on a leash – and enjoy going out to explore. (I may never be a trust worthy off leash dog – unless you spend a lot of time working with me and building on my foundation of trust and training). With that being said – I will need to be in a secure kennel (wire kennel) when left at home. I am still young and will be destructive when left unattended. But I do promise I will be worth your time and patience! I am very smart and will learn all the things you want to teach me – in time!
