Here’s Hopper (#3372). He’s been in his foster home since early October and is learning how to destress after being in a shelter. He will now lay at the feet of the humans while they are working without demanding non-stop attention and petting. He knows there is plenty of love to go around so it’s okay to rest. He’s getting gentle walks a few times a day and doing well on a leash; he was getting some jogging time in until his foster family learned he has heartworm. He loves to play in the back yard with a ball, so much so when it’s time to come in sometimes his foster mom has to put the balls away so he will relax. He’s learning some basic commands and said to be pretty smart and very sweet.
All descriptions above are what we know about this dog when it was first released to GBR. Dogs are typically in foster care for three to four weeks. During that time, we will discover its true personality as witnessed by its particular foster family. The dog’s personality traits may change as it becomes accustom to its new foster home.
