Meet Shadow (ID4971)

Est DOB 8/2/2007 This sweet boy is hoping for a new forever home. He was abandoned to the streets in his old age - sad, lost, and confused. He's safe now, but he truly desires a home of his own with people to love him and make him part of a family again. He's a very easy guy. Although just a little shy at first, he warms up quickly and responds very well to a soft voice, kissy sounds, and treats. He likes to follow his foster mom and then looks for a cozy spot to settle down nearby. He has shown only sweetness to the people and little children around him. He also gets along well with another Ridgeback as well as a little Maltese in the home. He has enough spunk to still play with the other Ridgeback sometimes. He has been good with spending some time in a crate as needed but also good with just being loose in the house - no potty accidents and no damage to anything. Still needs a little work walking on leash without pulling, but he's catching on and enjoys his walks each day. And whoever said you can't teach an old dogs new tricks? This guy is learning basic commands every day. Overall, he's a real sweet boy, with a big heart and a whole lotta life in him yet. Might you have a little extra space in your home and in your heart for this fine fellow? If so, please fill out the online adoption application and express an interest in Shadow #4971.
