My human friends tell me that I am as cute as can be and a real gentleman when I get comfortable around them. You see, I have a little issue with trusting humans when I first meet them – I don’t believe I was treated too nicely before LSSTLAR saved me. But, LSSTLAR saved my life and everyone there has been so good to me! I have made a lot of progress and will continue to do so, especially in a loving and stable home environment where I will feel safe. I do well with other dogs, but I am afraid of quick movements made by humans because they remind me of when I was hurt in the past. I am improving and know that one day I will be the happy dog that I want and deserve to be. If you will be patient with me and give me a chance, I will show you what a sweet and loving little lad I am once I learn to trust you.
I will need to go to a home that does not have children under the age of sixteen and I will need my human(s) to be patient while I adapt to my new home and learn to trust again. I am a handsome and loving fella and I love to go for walks with my humans and enjoy the outdoors. And if you have a nice, soft bed for me to nap in, you will have a friend for sure! If you are a loving and patient sort, won’t you please consider giving me a chance in a loving forever home? For more information about me, please contact my advocate at firstname.lastname@example.org and fill out your application – I am waiting to spend a lifetime with you!
