  • Dog Name: Brock
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 3 years
  • This gorgeous boy is timid with first meet and needs people to respect his space and allow him time to trust and feel comfortable. He needs a special adopter who will continue to socialize him and build his confidence. He is fearful and very soft, so needs to be given time to get comfortable and loosen up. He participates in shelter playgroups with playful dogs. He should go to a home without children due to his trust issues. Adopting him and watching his confidence and trust grow will be super rewarding!

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.
