Default Ivan Has Arrived

Wow, poor boy has been cooped up for so many months at the shelter.....he's got SOOOOO much energy to burn. This is going to be interesting, lol.

Sad thing though is his back feet are flat. I had a foster dog in the past that had the same thing from being stuck in a crate 24-7.

He's got potential in the right hands. He was sitting in a shelter for so long. Hopefully now we can work with him as he's an oversized puppy with too much energy. He was abused as a pup and supposedly is scared of men. He liked my man right off the bat. We'll have to see and assess how he continues on before trying to find him a forever home.

He was sitting at a shelter since November. As soon as my last foster dog went to her new home, we began to organize for him to come here. He is a young energetic dog that needs direction so he can be safely adopted out. He wasn't treated the best before so he's supposedly apprehensive when meeting men.

Ivan is a young dog that needs a lot of direction and MANY reassurances. He's completely afraid of walking on the floor (it's laminate flooring). Last night he would not come out of his crate. He wanted to and would look at me longingly but was so afraid. I put down a towel in front of the crate this morning and he came right out but didn't want to continue on to get to the door that leads outside. He was pancaked and crouching on the floor and it broke my heart seeing such a young dog so afraid of something he shouldn't be. I was finally able to coax him the rest of the way. At least Ivan was able to get over it quicker this morning than last night. I feel confident he will overcome his fear. I gave him a ridiculous amount of praise when he walked across the room, he enjoyed that, lol. Another thing that breaks my heart is that he flinches when petting his head. He needs some confidence boosting and I feel he's got great potential to find it with time and patience.

He loves my man and the drive thru which is a good sign, lol.

If anybody can help him it would be you. Victor came afraid of one man..not all men. Hopefully Ivan will make that jump too. Is there anything that can be done for his back feet?
