Meet Tortoise

Tortoise A224906

Tortoise is a 3 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 2/23/21 as a stray.

Handling 3/4:

Leash Test:

Tortoise & Harriet were quite a pair when they arrived at the shelter. They would only move in tandem - him to trying to hump her and Harriet only when she needed to run away from Tortoise. Not a classic true love story, but they do seem to like each other. Tortoise was ready to leave his kennel when we approached and seems like the more outgoing one. He’s a big boy and can be strong on the leash when he wants to.

Tortoise spent most of his time owner searching and looking for his escape. He came when called but wasn’t interested in treats or toys right away. He also isn’t shy about sharing his feelings. When he wanted to leave, he let us know. He wasn’t comfortable with handling and didn’t engage much other than barking when he was done with us. Tortoise calmed down a little when we walked past Harriet’s kennel. He’s understandably stressed being in the shelter environment surrounded by strange people.
