Hi! My name is Shelton and I came up from Kentucky last year with my brothers and sisters. I am looking for a new family since my first family had to crate me for long hours during the day. I am currently living with a foster family, and I love all of the time I get to spend running and playing and being outside. I am house broken and I go to the door when I need to go out. I sleep well in my crate at night, and I occasionally lay in there during the day, but I prefer the comfort of my foster mom’s feet.

Speaking of my foster mom, she says I’m a bit scared of things. She’s right. I don’t like loud noises and I take a while to warm up to other adults, especially men. I prefer to hide behind my foster mom if I am approached by someone I don’t know. I love kids though. And I will whine on my walks if there are kids outside until they pet me. I also love other dogs. Sometimes they get a little rough, so I go hide, but I’ll come out and play again quickly. There are cats in my foster home, but they hide all the time. The one I did see hissed at me and I ran away. I love treats, but I won’t always take them from you if I don’t know you. I am looking for a home that will give me lots of playtime, love, and patience.
