I’m trying;I really am! I was so terrified and defensive when I first arrived, that everyone gave me a wide berth to let me know they meant me no harm. After weeks of enticing me with whispered endearments and treats (I’m VERY treat motivated!), I’m becoming receptive to attention and coming out of my shell more each day. I was found wandering in Amado, so who knows my backstory, but they’re betting I’ve had some pretty harsh experiences in my life. What IS clear is that I’m a 2-year-old boy with 24-karat-gold eyes and plush black fur, and with patience and love, I’m sure I’ll turn into a grateful (in addition to handsome) companion!
