From the Foster: 

Wap  is an awesome dog! He loves to give hugs and play, and is content to sleep in bed most of the time unless you get out his leash, then he wants to go! He's really smart and LOVES to please his people. He will dance for his food and come as soon as you call him (We call him Mack now). He knows how to sit and is learning how to stay, but that's hard because he wants to be right next to you!
 
When we first took him in, he was terrified of everything. New things are still scary sometimes, like stairs he hasn't gone up or down, new dogs, and fireworks! He has learned to trust us and is incredibly loving, but needs a lot of patience from quiet and predictable people. If you do something too sudden, he sometimes feels threatened and will cower or growl to protect himself. He loves his foster siblings, but has a very hard time making new doggy friends. We think he would love to have a sibling in his forever home, but it can take time for him to make new friends and will need slow intros.
 
Wap  is really the best, he just needs a lot of love and kindness from people who understand how to make him feel safe and loved despite his past trauma. Younger children, because of their unpredictability, are not a good fit for  Wap .
