Hershey was a pretty shy boy when he first arrived. He was scared & not sure what the future was going to be. Well, he arrived at his foster home & was greeted by some furry friends who assured him it was going to be fabulous from here on out.
He spent the first few weeks just watching. Watching the humans, watching the other dogs, & watching the household activities. Hershey will accept pets on his head & back. Recently he has learned the feeding & potty schedule. He wags his tail & is displaying behaviors letting us know he is comfortable fitting in & is open to trusting his surroundings.
Hershey will need a secure physically fenced yard, as he will need to immediately have a safe place to go potty. In time, his family can work on leash training, but it isn’t going to happen any time soon.
He is a very good boy that doesn’t need to be crated & is always on his best behavior when his foster family is gone. They leave him in a pet-proofed area of the home until they return. He is not completely potty trained but is learning. Belly bands are a good tool that his foster mom uses & his new family could use, too.
Hershey needs a low-key family that will allow him to bloom. If his family has another furry friend of similar size, it would be a plus, but is not mandatory. He enjoys being able to be in the same room as his family at night, with his four-legged friends.
Please apply if you have a nice slow-paced home for Hershey to join.
