From the Foster:

Whittier is a shy boy who is slowly learning that what family living is all about. He will need a family dedicated to providing him time and training to help him overcome his shyness. When he meets new people he is very timid and shy but never has any type of aggressive response. He is slowly starting to trust his foster mom and dad. He currently lives with 2 kids ages 11 & 8 yrs old and has never shown any negative response towards them even though they are loud and hyper! He pretty just avoids them and does his own thing. His behavior with the resident dog is pretty similar – as much as he pesters Whittier - he just ignores him.

His crate is his safe space and he spends most of his time in there. We are working to show him that the world outside of his crate isn’t scary.  He has only had one accident in the entire time we have had him.   At the end of the day he is a great dog. He has gone from avoiding my wife and I to walking up wanting some pets. With the proper care, time and patience we feel that he will become a very loyal friendly boy.
