Shadow 5 is an owner surrender from the San Marcos area. He is a year old bi-black that weighs 18 pounds and is about 15 inches tall. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. Shadow is heartworm negative and on heartworm prevention. Shadow gets along great with other dogs and with cats, a recent visit to the dog park showed that he loves to run and play with others. He knows some basic commands and is housetrained. Shadow sometimes is very protective of ‘his’ human, his foster family is working on this issue.
Comments from his foster mom.
He’s pretty protective of his person; he will growl and bark like a big dog, but when my daughter comes over to pet him, he just turns tail and runs. If she’s there alone with him, he’s okay, doesn’t bark and he’ll come to her to put on his leash and go for a walk. Outside, he’s in heaven! If I come home while he’s sitting with my daughter, he’ll bark at me too, but he doesn’t bite.
He’s very curious of kids, but pretty skittish of fast movements, so I think he might be best with singles. He’s GREAT with dogs and cats and I haven’t seen any food aggression.
Shadow was adopted in April 2023.
