This dog has NOT completed his vetting. If the selected adopter is not near an animal HHR vet, Springsteen will stay with the foster until vetting is completed.
Behaviors- Shy & timid since he is still learning to trust people and to be a dog. Quiet, sweet, & gentle.
Other dogs: Great
Potty Training Progress: He does well on a consistent schedule. His foster takes him out every 3-4 hours during the day.
Crate trained: He finds his crate to be his safe place. He sleeps in his crate at night and has not had any accidents.
Other behavioral info: Still very shy and timid, tries to hide in couch cushions or behind furniture unless you’re holding him. He opens up with dogs but is still scared of people. If you hold and snuggle him he is fine.
Springsteen will need A LOT of love and patience. He is the sweetest little dog and he hasn’t made a single sound since coming into foster. Foster still has to help him out of his crate when it’s time to potty, but he does well outside. Foster carries him outside because he is not leash trained and is too scared to walk out on his own. He MUST be kept on a leash even in fenced yard, as he will run and hide and may be hard to catch. Definitely a flight risk so a fenced yard will be required.
Other than not understanding people yet, he is the softest, sweetest and most handsome little man. He has one brown eye and one blue eye. Springsteen is going to make an amazing dog, he just needs a lot of love and reassurance. He would also do great in a home with another canine sibling. Aussies are incredibly intelligent working dogs, he will thrive with future training and an active family with other canine siblings.
