3 years, Male, Medium Mixed Breed (Collie size)
Casper is a very timid and shy dog that needs a very patient home to take them on. When Casper arrived they were traumatized by the transport and hid away from us in fear.
Casper is a dog that will require time and patience to come out of their shell and learn to ‘be a dog’. They are a project but the rewards from adopting a dog like Casper outweigh the struggles they may have at the beginning.
Casper has started to allow one staff member touch him but this is on Casper's terms , he has also started to boop the other staff with his nose and will take treats from their hands - he has never loved a human before so he's not ready to be handled by many people yet. When taking on a dog like Casper you become their whole world, they finally learn to trust humans and learn that not all humans are scary.
Casper is making progress but he will not instantly allow a new person touch him - you need to build up a strong bond with him. The day that you can touch Casper will be an incredibly special moment for you both…
Casper is not currently lead trained as they are so frightened. Staff will advise you on how to teach them to walk on a lead when they are ready.
Casper has lighter pigmentation around one of his eyes - this is not a health condition, it is just the colour of his skin!
