Update from PJ's Foster Mom:
PJ Pilot is a very sweet boy with a yummy soft coat. He's a shy guy who needs a little time to warm up and get used to new people, but once he's comfortable with you, he will gladly snuggle in your lap. For reasons we'll never know, he appears to be afraid of men. We believe that given time and patience, he will overcome those fears. He is a bit timid but his tail is always wagging. Going slow and allowing him to come to you, helps to ease his shyness. He loves being outside in the sunshine, so he needs a quiet and stable home with a backyard where he can run, play and explore. He gets along great with all dogs, big and small and would be happy to have a dog buddy. He will do best with adults or a family with older children who know about respecting a dog's space. PJ likes to know where you are at all times and will follow you around non-stop. He's a good eater and will sleep in his crate all night long. Lately he's been enjoying watching murder mysteries with his foster mom!
This adorable little fellow is four year old PJ Pilot. It’s hard to imagine that PJ was surrendered to a shelter, but his owners must have had their reason(s). The shelter staff said that he was so frightened, they just couldn't put him out on their adoption floor. He was noticeably trembling in fear at the back of his kennel run. They believed this precious fellow would do much better in the hands of caregivers who had experience with abandoned Dachshunds, so they immediately contacted DREAM, and we’re glad they did.
