Personality: Shaggy is a wonderful, affectionate, playful and sweet boy. He was very shut down and shy when he was first rescued, but his personality has blossomed in the loving care of his foster mom.

Potty trained: Yes
Health: Excellent, no known health problems. Was examined by the vet for heart, knee and hip problems, with no issues found.
History: Shaggy was abandoned in an apartment complex by his family in late November 2015. Luckily a neighbor took him into their home and kept him safe. He was so afraid and shut down that he sat huddled in the corner for a week! He slowly came out of his shell and became a very friendly affectionate dog. The family who saved him can no longer keep him since they're away from the house for 14 hours at a time. They love him and wanted a better life for him. He deserves a home with people who have time to care for a loving little dog.
Fostered in: Chino Hills with 2 dogs and several cats
