Shadow is a funny white and beige boy with a very unique personality. With a resting face of unhappiness, it’s hard to tell what he is thinking. Rest assured, he is thinking “I love you, human”. Shadow loves to be with his human, and definitely earns the name Shadow, as he will be your Shadow! Shadow loves walks and to explore, but he needs to be harnessed due to his trachea. Lounging in the fenced yard on harder days is best. Shadow dislikes loud noises and will be afraid if there are too many. He also needs patience as he is a bit shy at first, but he comes around quick! He will need a quiet area with a crate and bed for him to retreat to. He is house trained but will need to be brought outside regularly until he learns his humans are safe. He would fit best with a calm family that likes to chill and go for a walk or two per day. He is a big fan of dog-savvy cats who are non-reactive. He is non-reactive outside of his home, but would prefer to live in a dog free home.
