Personality: Brody is a sweet, timid dog that can be nervous around new people and places. He may try to move away at first. He warm ups with time and a quiet slow approach. Brody can be sensitive to invasive handling and needs to be comfortable before allowing to be picked up. His future family should be familiar with dog body language and reading his signals to help him slowly build confidence. He prefers to be able to come up to new people at their own pace, especially when yummy treats are involved. With some time, he will eagerly greet people with a tail wag and wiggles. Once he is comfortable, he will follow close by. He would do best in an adult household with experience helping shy dogs gain confidence.
History: They came to us from central valley.
Dog/Cat Skills: Brody can be initially tentative but will politely greet other dogs. He does best with calm, polite dogs who let him settle in and explore.
Leash Skills: Brody needs encouragement to walk on a leash. He does best when encouraged with happy talk or treats, or has a confident dog to follow their lead. Brody may benefit from an enclosed yard to work on leash walking.
