Spot

Spot

Here’s a little boy who could really use the help of a very special someone. Spot experienced rough times early on when the people in his life did not respect his need to feel safe, and overly rambunctious behaviors scared him so much that he became fearful and insecure. Thanks to the folks at Francisvale and to the behavioral team from the University of Pennsylvania who see past his nervousness to the sweetness in his heart, Spot is learning that he can trust people to take care of him and to treat him with the gentleness he needs and deserves. This little seven year old toy fox terrier mix likes to ease into his getting to know people, so, if you spend a little time, have a little patience, and share a few treats, you will find that Spot is a truly loving, playful, and happy little soul. He is proving himself to be very smart and adept at learning all the things he needs to know to be the best companion he can be. He will also delight you with all the fun tricks he knows how to do! Spot would love to share his life with a calm, serene, and peaceful family. In return, he will be a steadfast and loving companion, eager to share long walks with you as well as to quietly sit together enjoying each other’s company. On the surface, Spot is a diamond in the rough, but, scratch the surface, and you will find a treasure.

I love fall when I can jump in a big pile of leaves and then burrow through them!

 

This is me at the park!
