I was surrendered to a rural shelter when my owners could no longer care for me. I can be temperamental and need someone willing to work with me. I also need someone willing to come and visit with me several times before taking me home.

When I first meet humans I might come across as I don't like anyone but once I warm up I am fine. It takes me a little bit of time to understand and trust why another human would want to love me. I don't seem to have a lot of confidence and have the attitude that I am going to get you before you get me. I am very food motivated, so treats is a way to win my heart. Caregivers say 'he is sweet as sugar when he loves and trust you". I am also a very energetic dog and LOVE squeaky toys and will follow you anywhere to get one. 

I am not good with meeting new people. I will growl and snarl. Please don't hold this against me and give me a chance to trust you and love you. I could be your best-friend. 

I need a very quiet home with no children because I am really scared and don't do well with strangers. The suggestion for a meet and greet would involve coming out to the rescue for a few days to meet me so I could get to know and trust you. I need to be the only pet because I don't like to share attention with any other dogs. 


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters! DENISE H, JENNA L
