Meet Pup Pup! He needs a special person, but he knows you`re out there. We know it too!Pup Pup is pretty fearful with new people, especially men. He is also handshy. Pup Pup needs you to go slowly it is worth it once you`ve won him over!That`s exactly what shelter staff and volunteers did with Pup Pup: took it slowly. Didn`t rush things. Made sure he was comfortable with them. Watched his body language. Gave him LOTS of treats! And now Pup Pup has some shelter BFFs, including men, who look forward to spending time with him. Once you`re in Pup Pup`s inner circle, he acts like, well, a dog! He plays fetch, runs around with his toys, checks in with you for affection (and treats!). And you know that y`all`s relationship is the real deal when he rolls over to ask for a belly rub. Pup Pup needs an adopter willing to take the time to get to know him. That means multiple visits at the shelter to start creating that bond. Someone who recognizes that he will always need slow, repeated introductions with new people. Someone who understands that he has been through a lot in his short life and who wants to help him heal and thrive. Pup Pup needs a pet-free home that is adult-only and low-traffic. Pup Pup appears to be house trained but may need a little refresher course in a new home. Pup Pup may always remain cautious and fearful with strangers. He will go home with tons of support from the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group at the shelter), a goody bag of enrichment items, and free training support thanks to Friends of AAC and their Behavior Assistance Program!
