This adorable young boy was found as a stray in rural Tennessee and was almost immediately scheduled for euthanasia for one reason: he was absolutely terrified.
Trembling, shaking and unable to even return a gaze, Pixel was such a pathetic sight in his cage he touched the heart of the shelter workers who saw this sweet boy's potential and called FOHA. In a moment everything changed; Pixel's life was saved.
Now in an active foster home, Pixel adores romping and rolling about with his many foster brothers and sisters. He absolutely loves other dogs and is never happier than when he is playing or cuddling up with them. He will walk around the house with a tennis ball in his mouth or head through the doggie door to go out to the yard to play.
But Pixel still has a ways to go with people, he is still very timid. He will brush up against his foster mom and lick her hand but if she walks toward him, he will retreat. He will rush to the door, tail wagging, when she comes home from work, but if she reaches out to pet him, he will run away.
Pixel's foster mom must throws treats to him, he will not take them from her hand.
But Pixel is improving every day and he is very much worth the effort--this is a quiet and easy going dog, he uses the doggie door and does his business outside, he is not at all destructive. When he was first rescued he was found to be heartworm positive but Pixel has been treated and is now healthy.
What Pixel needs is a home with at least one other dog who likes to play, and a special owner who will give this little guy the time he needs to feel safe. For now, he is the perfect addition to a family looking for a friendly companion for another dog. In time, we believe he will be a loving companion for his owner as well.
