Please contact Rhame for more information about this pet.

Russell is a super shy, neutered, 7 month old little boy. His shyness can be a lot to deal with if you are not an experienced dog owner. He needs lots of human socialization and has been known to bolt from new people until he's comfortable. He would benefit from lots of training. He is about 7 pounds and loves to run and play and just be near his person. He loves other dogs of all sizes, not sure about cats. He needs some time and patience to adjust to his new home and you will have to earn his trust. He'd do best in a home where someone can be around to complete his potty training and help with his transition. He would not do well with young kids, older would be better. Please consider giving this sweet boy the forever home he deserves.
