My Story

  • About Me:Meet Drusus! He is a one and half year old, 14lb Chihuahua mix. Drusus is a sweet, quiet dog who currently enjoys solitude. We don't know him very well yet. His former life was rough, and he has a severe distrust of humans, so it will take us some time to get him out of his shell. It's a process but we are helping it along with some of his favorite foods, including sweet potatoes and little bits of bacon. We don't know if he is leash trained, but he knows how to use potty pads. He gets along well with cats and bunnies, and prefers to hold court with them in a quiet corner where he feels safe. He doesn't respond to any commands right now but he knows his name. He is quite frightened of being touched and currently overcoming his fear of making eye contact or being observed. A potential adopter would need to be knowledgeable about and mindful of trauma, very patient, and endlessly encouraging. Drusus may not ever become "an average dog" but with enough love and patience he can surely become able to live his best life with the right human.
