Somebody has been hitting this dog. He is very hand shy- took about two hours for him to allow me to touch him- he bit somebody at the shelter because he was so afraid. He has been here the better part of the day, and remains extremely leery. He reminds me of a third world street dog. He has that kind of tough confidence mixed with shyness about him. As soon as he was out of the crate, he was very happily sniffing the other dogs and showing very confident body language with them. Despite the fact that he is only seven months old, there is something very grown up about him. I can't imagine him acting like a lot of puppies, heedless and goofy. He is very serious and thoughtful- I think he is used to looking out for himself in a hard world. I am already pretty much in love with him. I am calling him Raymond because I always think of Ray as being the name for a guy is competent and self contained. I have attached a few pics- not very good light, but oh well. You can see how tiny he is next to Georgie.
I never want to keep my fosters, but I already wish to goodness I could keep him.
