    Story

    Casper is an absolute sweetheart but is very scared and unsure of almost everything for now.

    Casper came from a puppy mill situation, was kept outdoors, was neglected and had little to no human interaction.

    He is a sweet 6-8 year old boy. He’s had 15 teeth and one eye removed. He will likely need more dental work and will need the other eyeball removed in the next 1-4 years (due to glaucoma). He needs eye pressure checks every 3 months. He also needs prescription drops twice a day.

    Casper is very shutdown and doesn’t really leave his crate much yet unless an engaging but non-threatening dog lures him out for short exploratory bursts.

    He is very scared of most things but doesn’t have a mean or aggressive bone in his body. He never complains and is a trooper.

    We are working on building his trust and confidence so he can let his personality shine (whatever that is!)
