Dutch came to APA with a badly broken left hind leg and now, after amputation, he's starting a new life as a three-legged boy. This sweet boy is now in his foster home, which he entered seeming lonely and worried, with some anxiety. But now he's learning to trust his new human friends, staying close to them in the house and yard, leaning against them and seeking petting. Dutch doesn't care for being crated, but is doing well with his house training, standing at the back door waiting to go outside. He hasn't been observed with cats or kids yet, and has been a little growly at his foster home's dog. He'll get a closer introduction when his healing has progressed more. Dutch's recovery is going well, and he's eager to move on to his forever home. He's an affectionate, tail-wagger who's always happy to see his new people. Come visit and see if your home is in his bright future.
