He came to us from a hoarding situation and as a result is very fearful and shy. He is currently living in a foster home so he can receive extra love and care.
Bell Bottom is slowly learning to trust people again...under the careful tutelage of the other dogs in his foster home! During his 6-week stay, he has progressed from hiding in his crate in the basement to integrating himself into the everyday goings-on at the home. His home base is the couch where he loves to relax and watch his foster family. He ventures out from that point to explore little by little. He has discovered that the kitchen is where the food is, and he likes food. He has also discovered that he has his very own bowl of food. He becomes very excited and bouncy when he sees his bowl coming!
Bell Bottom is comforted by the other three dogs that he is living with and is learning how to be a confident dog by watching them. He is becoming playful and less fearful.
Bell Bottom is looking for an experienced dog owner. He would definitely do much better with another friendly dog.
He is house trained and crate trained and a very lovable little lap dog once he learns to trust. He is showing great progress, as he has opened up to another person who was visiting the home. He has just started to play with toys and tussle with the other dogs. He may never be a social butterfly, but he will be a very good companion to a kind and patient owner!
Come visit him at Animal Friends!
