Special home required! Please read this information on Colden before submitting an application to adopt! Colden is a 10 month old, 11 lb Maltese mix. He came to Humane Tomorrow from a hoarding situation where he did not receive proper care or socialization. He is now healthy, but will require a special home to deal with his initial shyness. Colden is outgoing and playful once he is secure in his new surroundings. He loves toys and treats. He has big and little foster dog siblings, and he loves them all. He has learned to go outside by following his Labrador Retriever pal. Colden must have another dog in his adoptive home to help him feel more secure. He is cautious with new things and will need both time and patience from his adopters. Colden is crate trained and potty-pad trained, in addition to going out with his dog pals. We think he will embrace walks and obedience training, but will likely be cautious and leery of new things. We have training resources available for his perfect family. The perfect home for Colden is quiet and routine, so homes with a lot of activity and people coming and going will not be a good fit for Colden. Older, animal savvy kids will probably be okay if they give him space. He will be slow to warm up to the men in the home, but with patience, will come around. Colden will be a wonderful pet addition for the right adopter.
