Curly is a special boy looking for a special home! He and his siblings were found living in a corn field down near Martinsville and they had obviously been on their own for some time.
Curly has some major trust issues and is going to need someone with a lot of patience and love to help him become a confident well adjusted dog. He is terrified of children and has some issues barking at men in his foster home as well. He adores his foster mom but lives in a busy family for teenage boys and is doing fine.
UPDATE from his foster mom 11/25: " He is doing much better. He has warmed up to my husband & isn't terrified of kids anymore. Just doesn't prefer them. He did just fine yesterday with 14 people over for Thanksgiving. He's come a long way."
Curly likes toys, absolutely must live with another dog, and should not have any issues around cats (his sister is living with one). He REQUIRES a five foot fence or higher. Please do not apply if you do not have one.
If you are interested in this sweet boy please be aware we are very concerned that if he should get loose, he will never get caught again. Curly does not try to escape but when scared will run, not think. Time and patience are going to be the best things for him along with a secure fence!
