My name is Garth Brooks!  I’m a sweet little guy and very affectionate towards my humans.  I’m very anxious about life generally and I’m still learning lots of new things in my foster home.  I don’t really know how old I am but I have all the characteristics of a young dog. I’m happiest when I understand my surroundings and like to chew a little when I feel comfortable. 

I’m house trained and love to go outside to quiet places but I’m still getting used to a leash and a collar – I just don’t understand why I need them!  So far I have walked half way down my street and back without lying down too much, which is great progress.  I have seen other dogs from a distance but I’m really not sure about them and haven’t had chance to figure out if I like them yet.  Busy places stress me out right now.  This might change as I grow in confidence as I’m trying lots of new things and getting the hang of them slowly.  I haven’t met any children yet so don’t know how I feel about them. My tail is missing but don’t let that put you off, you can always tell when I’m happy.

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we will deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
