You might shake your head in disbelief hearing that I have been at the HSHC since 5-22-17. I mean, look at me! I'm delicious! Big chocolate brown eyes, a Root Beer and caramel coat with a little marshmallow fluff on my neck and nose. I am in great shape, with long legs just meant for running and a sleek figure. I am only 1-a-half-years-old, already neutered and very motivated to get adopted.
The problem is the shelter environment sort of freaks me out. It is so noisy, always filled with strangers and new dogs, and to make matters worse; I have to live behind bars! I do not like being behind bars. I am not the bravest dog on the planet, and things tend to frighten me. So, when I am in the kennel I know I do not reveal my true personality. I am a friendly, exuberant sort of fellow, especially if I feel comfortable with you. It's just that I am shy with new people. Oh, by the way, I do not care for cats under any circumstance.
In my last home, I was a worry-wart about whether my owner was ever coming back from work. My very first owner moved away and left me with the owner who surrendered me to the shelter. I think I have learned to think no one is coming back. I need someone to help build my confidence to know that someone will always be coming back home to be with me. I need an easy-going, patient person who can build my confidence, give me time to settle in and provide the exercise I need to burn off my worry-warts.
The HSHC staff call me a Wallflower. I'm a shy yet charming canine searching for a patient owner with a relaxed lifestyle. I'm looking for gentle guidance to help me come out of my shell. Treat me sweetly, and I'll blossom.
If you are a little shy as well, perhaps we could blossom together! 6/28/17
