ABOUT ME: Let's start at the beginning. I came to the SPCA of Texas as a very scared pup who came from a hoarding situation back in September 2018. Yes, you read that right - I've been here for over 15 months! I was so terrified and untrusting of people, but the behavior specialists saw potential in me and enrolled me in a very special doggie school called the Behavioral Rehabilitation program. Every day I got special treats, training, games and playtime that helped me learn that people are pretty awesome. It took a long time and a lot of work, but I went from hiding in the back of my kennel to approaching a brand new person and letting them scratch my ears and giving them a nose boop! I'm still nervous in new situations and startle easily, but I am working on being a brave boy. Once I get to know you, I'll be sitting in your lap, begging for treats, and doing silly zoomies all over the yard.

MY DREAM ADOPTER: Will give me the time and patience I need to build trust! I need a calm, quiet home where I can feel comfortable and be the king of my castle.

DOGS: Bring potential doggie siblings for a meet and greet!

KIDS: Kids 12 and up, who will give me some time to warm up to them and know when I need my space, are cool with me!
