My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

When Linus isn’t smothering all the staff at Dogtown (where he is currently boarding) with love, you can find him chillin with his favorite ball in his mouth - totally content to just hang onto it in between play sessions! For those of you that don’t know, Linus made his way to the shelter after being found as a stray and unlike most strays, he was microchipped and registered to an owner! His story should have ended in a loving reunion but instead he found nothing but abandonment. We called, texted, AND emailed his previous owner and not once did we hear back from them But it’s truly their loss because this boy has changed our lives irrevocably for the better and we just know he’ll forever change his new family’s life too!

He was extremely overstimulated and high strung when he started his Swamp Haven journey, it was obvious to us that he was beyond confused as his whole life has been turned upside down. His first bath was an incredibly anxious one, so much so that the only thing we could think of to help was to give him a toy which he then proceeded to hold for the duration of his bath. It was clear that he needed a security blanket of sorts to provide him comfort, and so he became Linus! He’s waited over a year to find his forever people, but he won’t give up and neither will we! So he will continue to wait as long as he has his favorite ball to keep him company. Linus is looking to be your only dog. He is house and crate trained, though he can be left out unattended without being destructive. He LOVES kids and is a true people pleaser.

If you can’t adopt, reach out about fostering! This gorgeous velvet hippo would love to finally get out of boarding and play with his ball in a backyard!
