Meet Boris! Boris is an adorable 1 year old Sapsali mix. Boris is a shy/nervous dog likely due to past life experiences before he was rescued. He will shy away if you walk towards him or try to pet him if he isn’t lying down. Boris is more nervous of men than women due to negative experiences from his past. He does bark when he feels uncomfortable and when pushed will let out a small sound, but has never shown any aggression at all. His foster family has been working with him slowly.

The ideal home for Boris would be a home with another dog for him to follow and learn to navigate the world with. He shows more curiosity/confidence with another dog around! A home with no kids would be best just because of how nervous and shy he is, sudden fast movements from children will spook him. Once Boris gains confidence he’ll be a super sweet guy! He likes to follow his foster parents around the home, but is sensitive to sounds and will get scared when he hears weird sounds. 

We are looking for a patient home who will show Boris that the world is not a scary place and help him gain confidence in himself. Boris is patiently waiting!
