About Bigfoot

Although Bigfoot has had limited human contact, he yearns to be loved. He is an extremely loving and smart dog. Bigfoot listens well and has so much love to give to the right family. Bigfoot is a wonderful dog with lots of energy. He will give a family lots of love and joy.

“Hi, I’m Bigfoot! Don’t  let the name confuse you, I am actually quite small. I lived in a hoarding situation with a bunch of dogs my size. Needless to say, I have not seen much of the world outside that.

Things like leashes make me very scared, and I am not sure about house training just yet although I am trying my best. Fortunately my kennel is my safe space so I will come knowing that it’s a good spot to sleep and chill out in. I have not seen things like bigger dogs yet but other dogs that came from my previous home were very, very scared of big dogs – so I should go to a home with other little dogs like me, preferably chill and quiet. Otherwise, I love my people so I would love to be your only pet. Initially I was very nervous and anxious but I have since bonded well with my foster mom.

I require lots of patience and love to help me process new situations. As I am still afraid of the leash, a  home with a secured yard is going to be what I need until I can learn that the outside world is not so scary. No young kids for me please, as loud noises and sudden movements will still scare me. I am looking for a patient and loving family, ideally with some breed and fearful dog experience to help me out. Won’t you be the one to help me start my journey?” – xo, Bigfoot
