Meet Potus

Potus was found in east LA as a stray bleeding from his mouth likely due to an attack by another animal.

He has made incredible progress in foster and is slowly learning to trust humans again. He is house broken, good on a leash and LOVES to go outside for walks. He has great appetite and is very treat motivated and will take treats from his foster’s hand. He is cat friendly (and loves to play with his feline friends) and child friendly (although prefers that they do not pet him).

Being around other dogs seems to help him with his insecurities so a home with another dog/s is essential. He loves to hang out on the couch or, if you allow it, on your bed. He seeks comfort by being near you rather than being touched. Potus prefers women over men and will need be in a home when a women is his primary care giver.

He needs someone who can be very patient with him as he learns to trust humans again and understands that it will take some time before he is comfortable around new people. Potus is going to make an amazing dog and watching him slowly come out of his shell has been a beautiful sight and we can’t wait to see his true nature in the months to come.

Potus loves his humans but gets scared when left alone so that is something he'll need help with.
