Belly rubs, please. This ravishing little redhead is waiting patiently for his foster mom’s attention, and being a females-only fellow, craves her touch, and her touch alone. New to the world of safety and security, loving patience has slowly been turning shy and fearful Atom into sweet and trusting Atom. He now loves playing with his foster sibs, both small and large, toying with his stuffed animals, and chewing on his favorite bone. Always eager to be where his foster mom is, he’s learned that being picked up from the floor signals cuddles, not cruelty, and whenever she sits down, he gratefully lavishes her with kisses. At bedtime, he loves to snuggle with her under the covers, content to sleep there as long as she stays there, and is confident enough now to let her trim his nails. Because he can slip his collar when scared (he barks at cats until they run off and is frightened by noisy children), Atom is learning to walk in a harness. Still very much a doggy work in progress, what this most promising pup needs now is a home with a loving and patient forever female, without children or cats, to take him under her nurturing wing while being favored with his sweet, loving loyalty in return. Atom's adoption fee is $250.00.
