Dash has lots of stories to tell and if you are patient he may trust you enough to confide in you. Dasher came to HART extremely scared and skittish. He has made very good progress in his foster home. He is now jumping on the foster parent laps and sleeping next to them or on them in bed! This is tremendous given how shut down he was when we got him. However, he is still very scared and will still run away if they approach him. Given this Dash is a flight risk. He therefore needs a home with a very secure fenced yard. He does go outside to use the bathroom but occasionally he forgets his house manners. He will need a quiet home without a lot of activity. While he is good with children, the home needs to be adult only because young children running around would scare him. Also, there is greater risk of him getting out with children opening doors. He would also benefit from another playful and confident dog in the home to teach him that life does not have to be so scary. Once he knows you, he loves to sit on your lap and get petted - you can feel the tension leave his little body. He is very gentle and does not have a mean bone in his body. Dash is going to need a special person to give him time to come around and also keep him safe. If you are interested in Dash please let us know.
