Shiloh still has a very long way to go in trusting people. He has zero confidence in himself or the world around him resulting in a very timid and shy dog. Shiloh has no fear aggression and has never lashed out but is going to require a home with the patience to work with him to overcome his past. Shiloh does really well with people from a distance of about 5-7 feet and will linger on the outskirts of interactions but doesn't know what to do when the attention is turned to him. Shiloh will come up and nudge from behind seeking attention but does best when there isn't a big fuss made about it. He has a desire to be around people but is still so unsure of him.
Shiloh does great with other dogs and really relies on them for social cues. He was running with another dog - Bentley - who we suspect is his brother. Shiloh was definitely the follower and has stayed true to that role. He does great with other dogs and has learned how to navigate play groups really well. He would really benefit from having another dog or group of dogs in a home to show him the ropes and help him overcome his fears.
A volunteer reached out to us about Shiloh within minutes of when he was scheduled to be euthanized - there was certainly a large hand guiding him to safety and we hope to see him fulfill his potential with a loving home.
