This boy is very scared and has definitely been through some trauma, and he would do much better in a foster home than the shelter. He's a good boy and has perked up some, but is still very shut down. He has been very tense and is having trouble walking, but we are hoping this will improve after getting more comfortable in a foster home. Can you help him out?
