Hello. I am Little John Young!! I'm a very special boy who needs lots of patience and trust-building in a very mellow home. You see, I was locked in a bathroom of a hoarder's home for my first five years of life, and only fed food through the crack at the bottom of the door. I was so scared and lonely! I even had to have 33 rotten teeth removed, so I only have six left. I am slowly learning to trust humans but I admit that I have a road of recovery ahead of me. I am working on it, though, and I'd love to have you by my side as I get better. My foster parents have said I've improved so much in the last few months! Now I sleep in bed with them at night, love to cuddle, and play in the pool.
I just know that we could love one another. I don't take up much room and I don't shed at all! My ideal home would be a quiet home with few visitors. Ideally, a single person or two people who are dedicated to me and to my progress. I do fine with other dogs as long as you introduce us slowly. Once I know them, I can walk alongside other dogs like a pro. Now, I hang out with the big dogs in the house all day. I think it's pretty cool! I've come a long way! But... I don't want to play with them and if they are boys I really do not like them that much at all... I pick fights that I can't back up. I'm leash-trained, crate-trained, and I do love a good ride in the car. I also love to play with my toys and, then, when we're tired, I'd love to sit on your lap and cuddle. Because kids move so quickly and unpredictably, I really don't want to live in a home with children. I'm ashamed to admit that I am a bite risk, if I'm not handled properly. But it's only because I'm scared of new people. With the start that I had, can you blame me? But I am a really forgiving little guy. My foster parents have gained my trust, and I sit on their laps, play fetch in the yard, and go for daily walks. I would love to find my forever home with people who will love me as much as I will love them. Do you have a place in your heart for sweet little me?
*John will do best in a home with a doggy door, he LOVES to zip through and do his patrol around the yard!
