Creo came out of a hoarding situation created by a mentally handicapped man. He was abused in ways we can’t even describe. Yet, Creo so desperately wants to be loved that he will follow his people around all day. He climbs out of an outdoor kennel, not to run off but so he can go sit on the porch and wait to be let in with his family. He needs socialization so he does not see all visitors as a threat to his family. He lived in a foster home, but it was remote and isolated, he became too protective. He lived in a shelter and was allowed to wander the halls during the day to meet new people. That was nice, but being shut up in a kennel and “abandoned” at night stressed him out and he began behaving unpredictably, nipping a couple of people. They were going to put him down. We pulled him to give him one last chance.

Progress notes are listed below, in chronological order, newest at the bottom.
Creo is in foster with Gwen, who has been caring for him since he was brought into the local animal shelter, along with several other dogs, and surrendered by a man who (according to shelter staff) was beating the dogs with his hat. Creo is, therefore, skittish around men, especially men with hats. He does fine with women.
Creo is learning his commands. He is house broken, and is generally obedient.

Creo was adopted by a Veteran today. Their meet-n-greet went very well with Creo being uncharacteristically accepting and attentive of the older gentlemen. Congratulations to Dennis for arranging this great match!
