About Selby

“Hello! I’m Selby, let me tell you a bit about myself:

I’ve been hanging out in my foster home for a few months working on becoming a brave confident dog. I’ve learned to go to the bathroom outside but if I’m not taken out regularly or have to go really bad, I’m great at using the pee pads indoors. My foster mom uses yummy treats to help me feel comfortable going outside and once I’m out there, I love to sit in the sunshine taking in the sounds and watching the other resident dogs play. I get pretty excited when they’re playing in the yard, but I haven’t quite mustered up the courage to join in yet.

I would love if my forever home has another friendly dog to keep me company and play together. There’s two cats in my foster home and I’m a bit curious with them but don’t really bother them in the house. I have my own little safe space in the kitchen with a comfy bed and my food and water. I’m very content relaxing here when my foster mom is away from the house and at night. I’m a pretty low key, quiet houseguest overall. I’m still working on being comfortable around humans and allowing them to touch me but I sure am enjoying all the treats I get while my foster mom patiently works with me on these things.

I will need a home with a securely fenced in yard as I’m still learning to be a part of a hooman family. I’m noted to be semi-feral, sometimes this happens when puppies are not exposed to humans early on in life or have had circumstances that may make us quite fearful of them. I will need a home that understands that my progress, even those little baby steps, are huge victories! I may be on the reserved side for life and this would make me a great around-the-home companion. As I’m getting used to the hooman lifestyle, I would do best in a home without children.

Stay tuned for more updates on my progress!” – xo, Selby
