Lukas / by Mark Staggs

Lukas - handsome blue merle 3 year old male that was transferred to us by an all-breed rescue group. He originally came from a puppy mill, and they were not experienced in working with shy under socialized Shelties. Lukas has been in our rescue since March. While he has made good progress, he will still be a 'work in progress' for a while. He loves to play with other dogs! Understandably he is much more comfortable around other dogs than people, but it just takes time, patience, and love to work with the shy ones to help them bloom. He can only be placed with someone that is willing to work with him and has a quiet home (no young children, etc.) and a very securely fenced yard - at least 6' privacy. Lukas likes to run, jump and play, and he may be able to leap over anything smaller. He is being fostered in Franklin, TN.
