Being here at the shelter is very stressful for Shadow and he is taking longer than his sister (who he originally came in with) to open up. He really likes hiding in his little cave bed where he peeks up over the edge to keep an eye on you. On occasion, he will come out of his bed in front of actual people and he he'll look like an oversized hermit crab dragging his shell/bed along behind him. It's pretty funny! Shadow enjoys some treats and wet food now and again. As you can see, he is a little chunky so only a few treats, though! He has finally begun to come out of his shell and say hi! Shadow is very affectionate and sweet when given the opportunity. He just needs someone patient, calm and gentle to help him feel safe and allow him to show his true personality. He has so much potential. According to his previously owner, he does NOT like dogs, so he need to go to a dog free home. He is very affectionate and sweet. Just be a little patient with him and you will see his potential!
