Meet Sloth

Sloth was removed from a home with multiple dogs. He does have quite a few scars and scabs on his head. He is very insecure around other dogs but building confidence. He can tolerate walking with very calm dogs who will totally ignore him and sitting in a crate in a room with a calm dog. If an energetic, in-your-face dog approaches him he will bark and growl.
Sloth is house trained but is pretty tall and will take food if he can reach it. He is a love with people and craves attention and human touch. He is perfect on a leash and even in a fenced in yard and off leash, he will walk right along with you. He stares into your eyes and tries to tell you his story and loves when you sit and talk with him. He would like nothing more than to have his own person to be with all day. He has not been exposed to young children or cats. It is i possible that with the progress he is making with calm dogs that soon he might be able to be placed with another calm and confident dog.
