Howard was a feral dog that was trapped in Stephen's State Forest along with 16 other feral dogs. The "Forest Dogs" are all learning to trust people. They have never been pet by a human prior to their capture or heard everyday sounds like the hum of a refrigerator, the tumbling of a dryer, or even the flush of a toilet. Everything is new to them. They require fenced yards because they are still learning to walk on leashes. They would also love to have a home with no kids. We won't sugarcoat this...they are projects! If you have patience and a huge capacity to nurture and the ability to teach, please think about adopting or fostering one of these dogs. I can't begin to describe the joy you will feel watching dogs like these progress into happy, confident dogs. It is truly amazing to see the first tail wag, the first playful act with a toy, the first lick on your hand, and all of the little milestones that will touch your heart in a huge way. Please consider showing Howard what a loving home is. Thank you!
