Four/Five year old Eastwood was found the day he was thrown from a car down an embankment in a cardboard box. Too weak to move, Eastwood's namesake climbed down and carried him to safety.
Eastwood is covered in scars, now the only memories from his painful past. He has settled nicely in his foster home and has been wonderful. He is quiet in the crate, housebroken, and extra affectionate. However, he has likely never been a pet, so he finds new things in the home frightening. We are working hard to help him understand that each new thing does not have to be scary. It's a process, and his eagerness to please and willingness to trust tell us that given time to recover, Eastwood will be just fine.
Eastwood is not good with cats, but appears to be friendly with other dogs. He has gone on walks with other dogs and being in their presence gives him confidence.
