About me: Salem was seized from a hoarding situation back in September of 2018. She became a part of our behavior rehabilitation program and is currently living in a foster home. She's a shy and fearful dog who will need a patience adopter who will give her time to adjust in a new home. Salem may always be a fearful dog, but her fosters say she has fit well into their family and enjoys the companionship of their dog and cat.

Dream Home: Salem needs a quiet home without a lot of change or visitors. She will not be a pup that will enjoy walks, outings to public places, or big changes to her environment. Salem would be a great companion dog for someone who is okay with a shy dog that may not come to you for attention or welcome being petted.

Kids: 15+

Cats: Salem is currently living with a cat and has done very well.

Dogs: Salem must be adopted by someone that has a friendly and confident dog in the home.

Apartments: Apartment living will we way to stressful for Salem, she needs a single family home with a securely fenced in yard.

Trial Adoption: We are offering a 30-day trial adoption before Salem may be official adopted. This is to insure that its a good match for both the adopter and Salem before finalizing an adoption. We are also recommending that Salem remain on behavior medication for life.
