This shy little lad is Matty. He is 5 months old, and not a fan of shelter life — but he’s doing so well in his foster home! He is a sweet puppy that is learning to potty outside, walk nicely on the leash, sleep in his crate at night, and use the stairs like a big boy. He is still working on managing his anxiety/fear/overstimulation when meeting new people and dogs, but does well when introductions are slow and carefully managed. He is building confidence every day and his spunky personality is really starting to shine through! He will bark at and move away from new people unless the introduction is slow, so a home without small children would be best. He enjoys having canine pals, but is looking for a home without cats!
