Sonny - 6 years old (Fostered in Lexington, NC)


Sonny is a very loving boy. He's timid, but very sweet. He warms up quickly. He wants to play with our other dog, but so far she's ignoring him. She's actually snapped at him a couple of times and he's been completely submissive and showed no signs of aggression at all. He loves getting his chin scratched! Sonny weighs about 50 pounds. He's crate trained. At this time, likes to spend a lot of time in his crate. It's his 'safe place'. He's neutered and heart worm negative. He also walks well on a leash. He's such a sweetheart!

Foster Sonny here...I've been with my foster family for three weeks now and my foster mom says I'm really coming out of my shell (I didn't even know I had one...) When I first got here, I was so timid I didn't even want to come out of my crate. That was where I felt safe. I'd spent most of my life in a cage so that's all I knew. My foster family is teaching me how great a dog's life can really be! Now I run around with my fur sister in the backyard and I'm learning how to play. I've not had any accidents in the house for a while now. My family feeds me (on a regular basis) and I get SO excited when they're fixing my food! I start running in circles and my mom says I get a little spastic. I get to go on walks now and do really well on a leash. I'm looking for a forever family and would probably do better in a home that does not have small children - only because I'm a little shy and timid and they might move a little too quick for me and make me nervous. I do like the company of other furry friends though!
