HI! I'M ASHER! I love long walks and LOVE to play! First thing people and canines notice about me are my bright green eyes! Darn Im handsome! My foster parents tell me I am a good boy and notice when I first meet people I am a little timid and shy but I slowly warm up and love the attention and compliments that come thereafter. When I lived with my former dad, I wasnt well socialized and got hurt by two of my siblings, so, I get scared of other dogs when we go for our walks(I am dog reactive when I see a dog)and we are working on that! My foster family are working with me now on learning how to meet and greet new people and pets. Even though I get scared when I see other dogs, I LOVE my foster parents dogs! I LOVE to play with my foster mommy and her fur children(be part of the pack) just no rough play,makes me nervous. I am also told I think I am a lap dog and love to snuggle and get some lovin! My former owner told my foster mommy that I was his "therapy" dog. I snuggled with my dad when he was having a hard day or suffering from ptsd. I AM a good boy, I just had a hard upbringing and just need some work with a professional trainer to work on my socialization skills and learning to greet new fur friends. As I said before, I get along well with my foster parents dogs but I met them slowly,after a couple of weeks with some training and now LOVE my brothers and sisters!I am not sure if I would do well with someone who has dogs, maybe if someone takes the time to work with me on slow greeting.. As for cats, I do not chase or show aggression to my foster moms cats but Im working on properly greeting them since Im excited to see them. I think I will do well with a cat/s that is used to dogs..I think a good mommy and/or daddy candidate would be someone who has experience with dogs and has time and patience to work with a trainer on my issues with interaction with other dogs. Ideally,someone who is home with me (I LOVE being with my human and prefer that to being alone) but I do well when at home alone too;someone who has time to be with and work with me and would be a strong handler.
