Earnest doesn’t love the shelter. Who can blame him though. He is slow to come out of his kennel and hates going back inside too. Earnest is low key inside, usually quietly laying in the back corner out of sight. He can be suspicious of the leash but doesn’t put up a big fight coming out. Earnest has mellow energy like an older dog but it’s hard to tell his age by appearance.

Outside Earnest is still a mellow guy that doesn’t ask for much. He does some owner searching but will also engage with him handler. Earnest allows handling all over, really enjoys butt scratches, and his happy just to be next to someone. He doesn’t show much interest in toy or treats, hates getting his picture taken, and doesn’t appear to know any commands. We might never see the full personality Earnest hides under his shelter worries so a home that allows him to come out of his shell at his own pace is best.
