Pet name:
Lucas is a sweet, calm boy who's such a people watcher. His foster home has two big front windows, and he loves to sit on the window seat or put his front paws on the sills to watch people go by. Next to taking naps, it's his favorite thing to do. He had been abandoned after his owner died and left to live under a house. He came to the shelter feeling unsafe. As much as he loves watching people through windows now, he is still shy when meeting new people, and anxious when he finds himself in new situations. However, he has chilled out some since being neutered, so is becoming more confident. He is a great leash walker, staying close by his person's side and not pulling, but he still can be timid around other dogs and people. He did let a calm dog come up and sniff him, and he mostly ignores cats. He spent a weekend with two kids, ages 5 and 7, and was super chill with them, letting them pet him and take him for walks. At home, he's a gentle boy who wants to be with his fosters, snoozing next to them and giving them kisses. He prefers to take naps. Even out in the yard, he'd rather dig a hole to snooze in than go for runs. He is house-trained and nicely roams the house, doing well when his fosters are away. Lucas will hope to be the only pet in a home or with a pup who is very submissive. He may get along well with others if given time to get carefully acquainted. He should be okay when home alone, but is likely to miss his people when they're away. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. Offer him a window to people-watch from and he'll follow you home!
