Meet Karl! This gentle boy is a Cattle Dog mixed with Border Collie and a few other breeds. He has big eyes, brindle legs and a bushy tail. We think he is around 4 years old. Karl came from Mexico where he lived in a shelter for 3 years. He was very shy and did not want to approach people, but he has thrived in his foster home, learning trust and kindness from humans and his foster dog siblings. He is a careful boy who prefers to approach you on his own terms, but given time, he bonds to his person and seeks him or her out for attention. He likes when you scratch his ears and he likes settling down in whatever room his person is in. He has opened up little by little in his foster home and is becoming more affectionate. He would love a family that lets him sleep on the bed and it is the one time he is all about the snuggles. Karl gets along well with other dogs and loves to play with his foster dog siblings. He follows his alpha foster dog sister and gains confidence from her. He is submissive and sweet with all dogs and feels comfortable in his place in the pack. We think Karl would do best with another dog in his forever home to continue to learn from and to keep him company, but with time and the right family, he would also be okay as an only dog. Karl is a little too interested in kitties so he will need a forever home without any cats. He is house trained when he can be let into a yard every few hours and will let you know when he needs to go outside. He is crate trained and his crate is his safe spot. Karl would love a single family home with a yard but he would also be okay in an apartment or condo as long as he got enough exercise and had a dog companion to keep him company when you left. He walks very well on leash with a harness. He enjoys his daily walks. Karl plays with toys in his foster home and likes to gather them all around him then shred them to pieces. He can be startled by sudden noises and lots of activity so for now he would do better in a home without children or only older, respectful children that will give Karl his space when he wants it. Karl is a gentle, sweet "old soul" who is looking for a kind and patient family that will continue to give him the love, socialization, and attention he deserves.
