From the Foster:
Spud continues to be a wonderful boy. We have been taking him places and have learned that he is also a very scared boy in new environments and around new people. He loves all dogs, but new people are scary to him. It takes him a while to relax and start to trust. We made the mistake of adopting him out to some wonderful people that did not have another dog and he hid under the bed the majority of the time. We now know that he does need another dog and a physical fence. An invisible fence won't work for him as correcting him to learn the invisible fence would terrify him. He has the most beautiful temperament, no aggression, lovely animal who is looking for a patient, gentle family to help him overcome his fears and blossom into a self-confident, happy dog
This sweet boy is wonderful. He came to our house on Sunday and so far, no accidents in the house. He can be a little shy at first but after a very short period of time, he will follow you around. He is playful and can outrun a couple of the dogs here, but is very, very calm in the house. He loves to lie on the couch and watch tv with you, or sleep in bed with you. He can also be perfectly content lying in a kennel when you aren't home. He loves my 12-year old granddaughter. I have seen absolutely no indication of any aggression. A loud home would probably scare him. A nurturing, gentle environment would help him to develop more self confidence. Somebody is going to adopt a very loving new friend.
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
