Buckaroo is a low shedding 1 year old terrier mix who was surrendered by his owner. The poor baby is very scared and hides in his crate, but he’s not aggressive. He’s able to be picked up and held with no issue. He is not comfortable on a leash, though he’s okay with a harness. He might have been left outside a lot without a lot of human interaction given that he’s so young and so scared. Buckeroo just needs some loving patience and he will feel more comfortable and come out of his shell.
Update: Buckaroo is such a sweet heart. He is still extremely scared. Seems to be more so of men than women. He will come around if he is totally ignored and given space, you cannot force him to be with you and have to let him come to you when he is ready. It doesn’t seem to take long and once he’s comfortable he will start to explore and come to you for short pets and affection.
He will need a semi quiet foster home that will allow him to gain some confidence and trust. He will be showering his person with so much love once he comes out of his shell. This amazing little dog that just needs a little time.
