Meet Capricorn

My name is Capricorn and I am looking for my fur-ever home. I heard that I used to live with several dogs until my owner died. Luckily the volunteers at Almost Home Foundation saved me so I could have a second chance. I am currently in a foster home with two adult humans and two doggie sisters while I wait to be adopted. Here is what my foster parents know about me thus far:

-- I am dog-friendly. I am mostly housebroken with the occasional oops accident.

-- I am crate-trained but I spend most of my time in a playpen. Even when the playpen door is open, I still prefer to be in there rather than exploring the house.

-- I do not know how I am with cats.

-- I can be left home alone.

-- I am very skittish so children would be too scary for me. Also, an overly busy home with lots of people coming-and-going would be overwhelming, too.

-- So far I have not been very cuddly with people. I will occasionally let my foster parents pet me but mostly I run away from them. I do not like being picked up.

-- I am up-to-date on shots, micro-chipped, and heartworm negative. I have to gain a few pounds before I can be neutered.

In terms of a forever home, I need someone with lots of love and patience to help me learn to trust. I am not a social butterfly that wants to meet everyone. Previous experience with scared/skittish dogs is a plus. Since I am skittish and do not walk on a leash, I will also need a secure fenced yard for potty-time. It doesn't need to be a big yard, just a secure one.

Does this sound like you? Do you have room in your heart and home for me? If so, email to get in touch with my foster parents.
