This week we’d like to feature a shy, sensitive puppy named Evan. Evan is a 10 month old, 46 pound lab/pointer mix who came to us from Tulsa, OK in November. Because of his fearfulness, he’s been part of our Behavior Modification program, which has been helping him to learn confidence and trust.
Evan is a sweet boy, but he is worried about new people, new situations, and busy environments. He needs a quiet home with a secure fully fenced yard, and a patient, calm person who understands and can live with his fearful nature. He would not do well in a busy apartment complex, a home with a lot of hustle and bustle, or one with children. Evan will do best in a home with a calm, confident dog (or dogs!). He loves spending time with other dogs and going to a home with a dog of similar size will help him open up and build his confidence. Once he gets to know you, you’ll see that Evan is fun-loving and enthusiastic. He has a lot of energy and is amazingly athletic! He loves to run and play with toys, but it will take time for him to feel comfortable enough to do this around you. We’re not sure what Evan life was like before he arrived at OHS. He may not have had much experience with strangers, children, dog parks, the sights and sounds of traffic, or riding in an automobile. We expect him to be overwhelmed by everything he encounters at first. Are you a patient person who is willing to put in the time and love for Evan to trust and be comfortable with you? If so, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of his profile and someone from Oregon Humane will call to tell you more about him. You can see his profile HERE!
