5/21/2121 Update from John's foster mom - 

 

John has been fostering at my home for 7 months. He has come a long way toward becoming a good pet but is still ruled by his fear. He is good around every type of animal. He is very afraid of children and people who move fast or talk loud, running away is his first defence, but he may try to nip if he is cornered (or if he thinks he should protect me).  He has bonded with me, he loves to go for walks and car rides. He spins in circles and squeaks, a lot, every time I return home.  He's funny about playing, he wants to do it in secret, when he catches you peeking, he'll act like nothing was happening. He will not come to me, not for treats or pets, not even when he's excited to see me. I can now sit next to him on the couch and pet him or give him treats without him running away. For leashing, he has to put himself in his kennel or on the couch, he wants it, but he feels he has to run from it first. While leashed, I can guide him to share a recliner with me for socializing time, he'll frequently fall asleep on my lap. It may take him a while to trust you, but once you have his trust he will melt your heart.[
