Personality Color: green

Green dogs are a bit more shy and sensitive, maybe a little anxious, but are sweet and they try hard. These dogs will flourish with patient adopters providing gentle guidance and confidence building. They are likely too timid for active homes with children, and would do best in a calm, quiet home getting the TLC they deserve.

Bio data

Hi there! I’m a sweet, sensitive guy who needs a gentle person to help me be brave. Is that YOU? I’m nervous, but I love treats, gentle people, and affection once I’m comfortable. I’ll need people to go slow with me and be patient. Once I warm up, I’m friendly and playful. I’d like some confidence building, and training with cooperative care. Wanna be buds?

Adults only, very nervous, hand shy, can be mouthy

Dogs: Rude and controlling, slow/careful intros or single dog

Huffington recently went on a Doggy Day Out, here’s what the humans have to say about him: 

“As soon as he leaves the shelter and hits the trails, Huffington turns into a wonderful and relaxed hiking dog. He loves to explore in the woods and in creeks. He walks very well on the leash and really likes the water. We passed adults, babies, and dogs and he didn’t react to any of them. Huffy is rather shy and he prefers to focus entirely on hiking. He patiently waited for me to make my way slowly through some roots on the trail several times. He was very polite and well behaved — absolutely no jumping or mouthiness. I think he would love to run as soon as his heart worm restrictions are past. He is also a great trail finder, which is very useful later in the fall when leaves cover the trails. He rides well in the car and just hung out in the back seat watching out the window. I was a little apprehensive at first about taking him out for an adventure. Myke, the awesome dog tech, was very helpful getting Huffington and me off to a good start. Thank you, Myke. It was a great pleasure to have Huffington turn out to be such an excellent hiking friend.”

Huffington has been spending some time in foster, here’s what the humans have to say about him: 

“Once I am out of the shelter and get used to my surroundings, I am a fun guy. I play with toys and try to engage the yappy dogs next door in a game of running up and down the fenceline. I am also happy being a couch potato. I love to watch my human and also enjoy looking out the window. I am house trained and haven’t had any accidents in my foster mom’s house. I also don’t bark much. Here are some recent pics.”
