Shadow is living in hopes of becoming some person's shadow. In the meantime, he's forming strong attachments with those humans he's with at the shelter, wanting their petting, love and reassurance. He hasn't even figured out that he's too big to sit in their laps! This soulful boy lost the home he lived in almost his entire life and is now learning to socialize with people new to him. And he's having a good time playing with dogs in playgroup. A meet-and-greet with a potential doggie housemate is always advisable. Shadow pulls some on his leash, but is happy to go on walks. And he's willing to answer to the "sit" command, offering his paw for a shake. He's quite willing to hang out by himself, and he seems house trained. Shadow has tolerated kids, but may do best in an adult-only home. Come take him for a walk and see if yours is the home he's longing for. And remember, all APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
