Knightly: From Sad to Happy (very fast)

 

See this sad fella?

Sad, sad Knightly at the shelter. Way too overwhelming for this sensitive boy.

Here’s what he looks like 48 hours after being in a foster home. Amazing that the  quiet space in my garage was all he needed to detox from the noise and harrowing experience of the shelter.  And then a little play time with a couple of my dogs.

I wish I could post video here, but my blog isn’t equipped for it. His wrestling sessions with Crespo are pretty hilarious.  Here’s a little sample:

Throwing head back and laughing hysterically (in dog language), while Crespo goads him into playing.

If you’re interested in adopting Knightly, check out his petfinder link: http://tinyurl.com/cepzgl5

My pal, Jacinta, may be able to put his wrestling debut on his petfinder link. Please go check him out. He’s a lovely, sweet and submissive fella. And I suspect someone hit him now and then, because he can’t seem to believe when I lift my hand to pet him that I’m not going to strike him :{ He’s so easy going and mellow too; I can’t imagine anyone losing his temper with this Teddy Bear of a guy. He’s timid and shy but warms up quickly and I’ve even gotten kisses already. In other sad news, he is heart worm positive. He needs someone who will see him through that and give him the love he deserves.

Another friend of mine is taking over fostering him tomorrow and I’m really going to miss him. He’s a super easy and calm dog. Please share and help him find a home. He loves other dogs,  ignores cats, and like kids. However, he really startles from loud noises, so he’ll need kids who will be gentle with him and respectful. He warms up slowly but then very surely. Comes bounding when I call him and we’ve only known each other 48 hours.  I can’t say even all of my own dogs do that. Please share Knightly’s story and help him find a home.

See that little blur at the end of Knightly’s butt? That’s his tail wagging. Timid, but happy.

 

UPDATE (4/14/13): I’ve had Knightly a week and I’ve decided to keep him here another week. He’s come so far I don’t want to change his environment while his confidence is building. Plus, he’s the easiest house guest we have ever had. He had some interest at an adoption event Saturday with a lovely couple I thought might come back and adopt him Sunday, but they didn’t :{ Hopefully, the right person will come for him soon.

  1. What an adorable boy! It’s nice that you’re keeping a little while longer, he looks to be settling in 🙂 It really is amazing how quickly they loosen up, they know when they’re safe and loved.
