Everyone says I’m very sweet; I’m just a little bit shy. I like to take my time getting used to new environments. I’m looking for an adult-only home with a family that has had experience with shy dogs like me! I'd love to meet everyone in your family first, including any dogs that you have at home too. I just want to be loved and cherished. Once I warm up to you, I think you’ll find I have real best friend potential!
