PROFILE

Burke is a sweet, timid, little boy, who was found out on the side of country highway, along with a female Golden Retriever.  He is a shy dog that is beginning to come out of his shell. We suspect he did not have much, if any, human interaction until he was picked up as a stray and brought into foster care. He would shy away or run from his foster family when he first arrived at our foster home. After a few weeks, he is carefully coming to his foster parents and will allows them to scratch his belly. He is still uncomfortable on the leash and public places. He and his golden foster sibling have become good friends, and he is looking to him for guidance in unknown situations. He is playful but also calm for a younger dog. At about 9 months to a year old, he is very smart and learns quickly. House training is progressing but he still can’t be trusted loose in the house alone. He is crate trained and knows it as his safe place. 

Burke is good with older children, but we don’t have any experience with him and smaller kiddos. He could do fine with small kids, but since he was a stray and is somewhat shy he probably will be best with older kids who can help him be more confident. He gets along great with the resident cat that runs the house. In a loving home, Burke will flourish as a member of your family, but it will take a bit of time to gain his trust. He will need a home where he gets lots of time and attention, and another confident dog in the home will be ideal.


UPDATE

Burke has recovered well from his surgery, and he is ready to start looking for his forever family.

Sweet Burke has been sick, and underwent surgery to make sure there was no foreign object in his stomach. It appears that he did ingest some type of material. We are monitoring his recovery and will update as he progresses.
