Shadow – Dog Number 1583 – Age (approx) 1 years old – SBT – Arrival Date – September 2021.
Shadow needs an adult only home where he needs to be the only animal in the home.
Shadow is a super bouncy, fun and bright boy who has sadly missed out on some key socialisation, having been born during a lockdown . While in his foster home Shadow has really come out of his shell, he is making great progress with the world around him and is learning to socialise and explore new places.
Shadow is well and truly ready to start the next stage of his journey and find his forever home, he needs a home with time and patience who is able to keep calm and relaxed to reassure Shadow everything is ok.
Once Shadow gets to know you he soon relaxes and is incredibly friendly and cuddly he loves playing with his toys, and snoozing on the couch. When meeting new people and entering new situations he can be worried and reactive initially, when he realises your calm and he is reassured he quickly allows himself to relax. He can be similarly worried around dogs, he has met a few calm dogs nicely on lead with no issue.
As a precaution due to Shadows lack of socialisation earlier in life he wears a muzzle whilst out on a walk, Shadow is content wearing his muzzle and unfazed by it. In his foster home Shadow has shown signs of separation-related behaviours (whining, pacing and toileting if left alone) he is getting better at handling these situations and as continued to improve over time.
Shadow has had a lot of training and is working with behaviourists to continue to accept the world around him, both at home and in the big wide world. Shadow really is a credit to himself and his foster family, he is bright, focused and more than happy to show off his skills for you. With ongoing support and the love and commitment of a forever home Shadow will shine bright.
