Runner came to APA!'s shelter as a very withdrawn, fearful boy. Now he's in his foster home and he's opening up, getting excited about everything he sees. He's still a cautious pup, but he's well on his way to warming up to his new human friends - and he adores his new doggie housemate.

After a slow introduction, Runner fell in love with the foster's dog, and he now follows her everywhere, cuddling with her on the dog bed and sofa, and even in the yard. He's also excited to go on walks with his fosters, and he's curious and excited to see other dogs, wagging his tail at them.

At home, he's a very quiet, well-behaved boy who's already become nicely house-trained. He goes to his crate when he wants to be in a calm, safe place, and he's also happy to freely roam the house with his dog buddy when his people are away.

This sweet boy will do well in a calm, predictable home, and especially one with a lovable doggie friend. For more about him, follow him on Instagram: @asluhansensamling and meet him today.
