AJ is an adorable, petite. 1 year old guy who is very affectionate. He loves attention from his humans and is a loyal companion. While he will whine when not with his family members, he is not destructive, just 'concerned'. He does settle once he has expressed his opinion! AJ is an anxious, timid boy, due to the trauma he suffered that made him homeless. He was found by the police tied to a fence in the middle of the night. He was in good condition so it just didn't make sense. He was taken to the shelter but no one came looking for him. He will need time to decompress in a new home, so patience is an important factor for his anxiety. Once he warms up, and with his humans, he is calm. In the beginning he is 'waiting for the other shoe to drop' because of his past abandonment, but once he realizes he's safe, he adjusts. We believe he'd benefit from a playmate who is tolerant and stable. You couldn't find a sweeter creature than this little guy!
AJ loves treats and his favorite snack is a big juicy raw marrow bone. It will keep him busy for hours. The photos are from the shelter, but AJ is now in foster care and is house and crate trained.
