Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shots

Dean needs YOU! Dean was found in our trap when Agave had escaped from her foster people. He had gone into the trap looking for food. We later found out that he had been on the streets for some time. A kind lady had been feeding him whenever she saw him. Dean shows the effects of living on the streets. He is frightened of new people and new experiences. Initially he would stay huddled at the back of his kennel and found it very hard to come out for a walk. Harriet kindly took him overnight for a break. Here’s what she had to say about Dean: “Dean was pretty confused and scared when I first got him home. We managed to give him a bath but it took him a long time to settle. As he seemed comfortable in the corner, tucked between the sofas, we put his bed there and he slept well, only waking once but going back to sleep quietly after a bit of a cuddle. He managed to eat about 2/3 of the food you had made last night after being prompted with some hand feeding. This morning he wolfed down the whole tin of pedigree but had no interest in the solid food. He became more confident with each walk, happily going out for about 30 minutes this morning. All in all, he’s a lovely dog with a really nice nature.”

Dean needs a consistent foster home with someone who can show him a lot of patience. It takes dogs like Dean a long time to gain their trust. He will need proper crate-training in order to adjust to feeling safe in there.  He would do best in a home with another confident dog who can teach him some routines and how to enjoy being a dog.
