Hello, my name is Shaggy! I have

lots of energy and would be a good fit for a family that can take me on runs and walks to burn off some of my energy. Although I love to go on walks I need a little help with learning not to pull. Also, if you have another dog that I could play with that would be awesome too.

My foster Mom has other dogs and I really like playing with them. I'm learning what boundaries are and how to respect them. I love to play with other dogs and toys! I get super excited when I met new people and can tend to jump on them a little, I don't mean any harm I'm just happy to meet you.

I love
to cuddle and my foster Mom says I'm
very affectionate and I love
I get a little scared when I'm alone, but as long as you let me know you are around I'll feel safe.

I gotta say, I love food and treats. My fosters say that I'm a fast learner because I picked up on how to "sit" and "down" really quickly.

I have had a lot of changes in my life. I ran away from my first home twice, which I guess makes me an escape artist, the first time my owners reclaimed me but not the second time. When I first came to the rescue I had separation anxiety, but it's gotten better. I would like a family that can be patient with me because sometimes my separation anxiety gets the best of Shaggy. I would like a family that will spend time with me and not leave him alone for long periods of time.

My foster says I would thrive with a family that can provide structure, reassurance that I will not be abandoned, time to train me, and lots of love. She says I'm a very sweet and loving dog. That I would do great in a home with another dog that can show him the ropes and play with me.
