Indy has been at the shelter now for about 3 weeks and we are seeing great improvement in his confidence and socialization! This sweet boy has had a rough start to life. He has only ever lived outdoors and didn’t get the proper socialization that he needs to feel confident and secure. We have been working on training him to love people- and lucky for us he is very food motivated! He will need a patient guardian who can continue to build his confidence and help him learn how great life can be!
Although he is the most shy of the three, we are seeing a ton of potential with Indy after he has been in our care. Indy is filled with personality and can show his goofy side once you get to know him. We are working up to leash walks but for now he is enjoying play time with his brothers in our gym! He is continuing to work on house training.
If you feel that you can help this pup become his best version of himself please apply today!
