Dear Furever People,
My name is Shiney but my foster mommy likes to call me "Chapo" (she thinks it's funny). When I first came to my new foster family I was very shy and scared. I shook and shook and didn't want to leave my favorite spot on the back of the sofa. I didn't let anyone touch me but my foster mom and I didn't want to play. My foster sister Piper would lay on the back of the couch for hours with me until I finally came down! I'm much more comfortable now and even snuggle with my foster mom, brother and fur siblings. I might need some time to warm up (my foster mom says I have "little man syndrome")but if you have the time and patience I'm really a good boy (at least that's what she tells me!)I like to chase feet so I think a home with no small children would be best for me. I love other dogs. I have 4 foster sisters right now that range in size and age (but if they pick on me I will tell them to leave me alone). When the people go out they let me roam around but make sure all of the shoes are put away and I have toys and a chewy bone to keep me busy. I've recently discovered how much fun outside can be and I love to play out there with my friends! Just so you know, I'm also told I'm a way better guard dog than any big dog you'll ever meet! I'm up to date on shots and already neutered and I'm ready to find my people! If you think you could be my people please apply at hhbrescue.org. I'll be waiting!
