Rootbeer “Rooty” hasn’t had much experience with the world. He is still learning meeting new people is okay. He has come so far in the short time he’s been here but still does have the tendency to be fearful and react towards new people. With some time spent with him this sweet boy warms up!
Leashes and collars are new to Rooty. He is learning how to walk on a leash and his new home will need to have patience and continue working on showing him how it works. He has been able to go on short walks with coaxing and many many treats!
His ideal new home would be one who will continue with socialization and working on his reactivity towards new people. As he is fairly nervous we feel a more quiet home without small children would be best for him.
