Dougie is in foster care, and having a ball. Here's what his foster mom has to say about him: "Dougie dog may be 8 but he has the energy and happy attitude to keep up with outgoing and happy dogs half his age. He came from a home where he was an only dog and much-loved and cherished family member -- great with all age groups. He can be a bit tentative of new situations, especially loud ones like the shelter but his love-of-life attitude and curiosity about what life is about helps him overcome his shyness quickly if he is supported with love and encouragement.
Dougie likes: People of all sizes and shapes, belly rubs, other dogs that aren't grumpy, lizard hunting and squirrel chasing. Not so much: power drills and leaf blowers, fearful of aggressive big dogs.
