Shadow

Shadow is super smart and needs a very patient adopter. Maybe you're his person!

How can one pup be so doggone cute? Shadow is a five-year-old Australian Shepherd who weighs about 35 pounds.

As is typical of his breed, Shadow is a smart little guy and already knows how to sit, come and shake. He's housetrained and crate trained, too. He gets along just fine with dogs that don't jump in his face (looking at you, puppies!).

Before you rush to fill out that application for Shadow, though, you need to know a few more things about him. He was not treated nicely by humans in the past and it has affected the way he feels about people now. Shadow is very shy and fearful around people, he isn't affectionate, and he can't go to a home with kids. With a lot of patience, he is making progress, though -- after five weeks in his foster home, he's approaching his foster mom for pets! With the right home, we think Shadow will thrive.

Think you've got the right home for Shadow? A quiet, adult-only home where Shadow can have plenty of time to get comfortable? By all means, call or text The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387!

Shadow is in the Kansa City metro area, but transport is available to the right home.
