Sulu is a mixed breed, possibly Jack Russell mix. A family brought 5 dogs to the shelter, all of them very shy of people. Four of the 5 dogs got adopted except Sulu who was the most fearful of people.
After being in a foster home for several months, Sulu made some progress in trusting people but not enough to feel he was ready for adoption. A decision was made to hire a trainer to help Sulu with his fears. Sulu has now made great improvements in allowing people to pet him, and has really taken to the trainer’s little girl. He just loves her. Sulu does great with other dogs and has never had a problem trusting other dogs as they were not the cause of his fears.
Sulu is learning basic comments, such a sit and stay. However, he still cannot be trusted off leash in an unsecured area.
Sulu will do well in a home with a confident dog to help him with his insecurities. Sulu needs a very secure yard since he will run if he gets spooked. He has taken off a few times and luckily returned on his own because that’s where he feels safe but that is not something you can count on. Sulu needs lots of patience with an experienced dog person to bring out the sweet loving dog that is hiding in there.
Sulu is up to date on shots, neutered and micro chipped. He is healthy and gets along with other dogs.
If you think you can be the one who can help Sulu become the loving sweet dog we know is in there, please contact me at 661 943-4888 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An approved adoption application is required for Sulu.
