Special home requirements or medical: another confident dog in the house will help him overcome his insecurities

Additional info: We took Lance in with his brother, Lucas, who he loved dearly. Lucas has been adopted.

Lance and his brother Lucas came to us severely neglected from, we believe, a hoarding situation. We won't dwell too much on how scared and withdrawn Lance was, with his tail constantly between his legs. Instead, let's tell you what an amazing, playful, loving affectionate little guy he has turned into in just a few months. He loves to wrestle with other dogs and adores toys and chasing squirrels. He adores going on long walks. He is shy and silly and has become quite the snuggler. He has really blossomed into a one of a kind, gentle, little guy who would make a great companion.

Everyday there's a new miracle happening, as he's becoming more confident and trusting. We think Lance would simply love having another dog in the home. Lance will take some time to warm up to people in a new home, but he will come close and snuggle in his own time.

Because of his fears we do not recommend him to be around young kids. There is a possibility he may snap if approached too quickly. So, some work ahead for this scared little boy but time and patience is all he needs.
