Meet Lubu, "Bu" for short. This charming boy has been in his APA! foster home for a few months now and is making slow but steady progress towards realizing just how great it is to be a dog!

Upon arrival, Bu was so fearful of everything it was a challenge to coax him from his crate to go outside and do his business but this brave boy will now walk outside on his own! He's even started trying to play with his foster mom-bouncing around her and giving her little paw waves when she waves at him! Let's be honest, he is still scared of mostly everything inside and outside but this is HUGE progress and we continue to see tiny bits of progress each day.

Bu spends his day snoozing in various places in the house, with little bouts of backyard play time in between. In the home, he takes great comfort in following the resident dog around so he can follow her cues on whether the latest noise was something to be scared about. At this time, he is not yet comfortable approaching people or with physical affection. He will do best in a quiet, low-traffic home with patient parents who are willing to take things slow to build his trust and confidence. It's pretty hard to resist cuddling his adorable underbite and half-bobbed tail but good things are worth the wait!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
