Get To Know Shadow

Hi, My name is Shadow. I was surrendered here and I do not like the kennel-environment at all!
Most unfamiliar things scare me and I might bark or even growl but I just missed a lot of socialisation because I was taken from my mom before I was 5 weeks old and I still had some weeks of learning to do from her. Anyway I am still very young and very capable of learning but my new owners have to make sure they are very gentle with me and only ever use positive reward based training while teaching me. Also I can never be yelled at, loud noises scare me and I want to make sure I go to a calm home with very loving and gentle owners who will excessively praise me when I am doing the right thing so I can learn. I promise I will try. Actually I am a real sweetheart once I am not scared of you anymore. If you would like to take me home and love me forever please go talk to reception.

Our website updates the availability of our dogs in real time. There is a chance that while you are travelling to the Home to meet a particular dog, he or she may be involved in the adoption process or already adopted. You can phone ahead to enquire about a dog you are interested in between the hours of 11am and 4pm but we cannot place dogs on hold over the phone. Please review our Adoption Process or complete an Adoption Questionnaire prior to your visit.
