Ready for Adoption
McAlister was returned to the program for personal reasons. He is 7 years old (DOB 1/26/10), 15-16 inches, 27 pounds (needs to lose a few), UTD, neutered, heartworm/fecal negative.
From his foster home: McAlister is very shy and timid. He takes a very long time to warm up to his owners. He is good around new people but is cautious and never seems to be fully comfortable. He follows me around the house always keeping me in sight. He also follows me outside but runs around the yard for 5-10 minutes before approaching again. Sometimes it is difficult to get him back inside because of his trust issues. Over time, inside the house, I have earned his trust and he will approach me and feel comfortable in areas other than his crate. He now jumps on the couch with me and enjoys being petted.
McAllister needs a patient and quiet home to help him feel secure. He may benefit from another dog to take his cues from.
