His fur was so matted and filthy that I couldn't see how skinny he was until after his baths, and he was so infested with fleas that the water turned red when it rinsed off his head from the dried blood from flea bites. He's been through hell, but he's still a sweet little dog. He's good with my big and small dogs and follows me every where I go. I have 3 birds that he is very well mannered with as well. He doesn't like hands reaching for him, but instead of bolting he backs away from you so he can still be nearby. He's got a microchip, but the chip is from a shelter in ...

He sleeps in the bed with us at night and has wonderful indoor manners. He has lost most of his potty training since living on the lam for so long, but he has started noticing that our dogs go out to use the bathroom and I see him using outside more than he used to. He's very food motivated and will fall over himself to get to you if he sees you get hot dogs out of the fridge, so training him will be a snap. He does not like leashes, and even watching our dogs leash up for their walk does not help him calm down if a leash is snapped onto his collar. I'd love to keep this guy, but he needs much more companionship than I can give throughout the day. His ideal family will have no small kids and someone who is home a large part of the day. He's safe and happy right now, so I am going to be very picky about his forever home. His adoption will come with a guarantee from you that if you ever have to find him a new home, or he doesn't work out with your family, he is brought back to us.
