  • Dog Name: Luca
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 1 year, 8 months
  • This gorgeous guy is very nervous and timid with people. He’s smart and reserved, and seems to be taking in what’s happening around him and the chaotic shelter environment. He enjoys some attention and affection, but doesn’t need it all the time and has an independent side. Due to his timidity, we do not suggest young children at this time. He participates in shelter playgroups with playful dogs, and seems to do best with females. A patient home environment could help this stunning boy come out of his shell.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
