Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) - Thurman Aka Amaroq - Large
Hi ya!!! I'm Thurman (aka Amaroq). I am a husky mix, I think, I don't really know. When I got here I was scared of everything. I am still scared to walk on the hardwood floors. I am sort of tightly wired all the time. Tense. I am always afraid that something bad is about to happen. I get to have food all the time now and am starting to relax about that but, sometimes I get nervous that somebody might want to take it away from me. I finally figured out what they want me to do when they tell to "sit" but I'm not sure why they want me to do it. I will do it but I do it really slowly b/c I think it might be a trick. But when I do, they give me a treat and that makes me happy. I just don't know how to get past these trust issues yet. I am trying to become more trusting and confident. I used to be scared to death of strangers. But now, sometimes I muster up the courage to go over and meet them. I'm still pretty afraid if they come to me b/c I don't know what they want, but if you give me some time.. I will work up all the courage I have and come to you. When I do that, please tell me I'm a good boy and gently encourage me to keep up the good work. I really like and trust the people I see everyday, but it took a long time to get there but now, it makes my day to see the staff at the boarding place and I wiggle my whole body to show them how happy they make me and when they let me I will jump up and wrap my front legs around their waists and hold on tight and rub rub rub my head all over their tummies. I like to walk on a leash and I love to go hiking through the woods. Other dogs that aren't contained or on leash make me nervous. I don't know what they are about to do and it makes me anxious. I weigh about 65 lbs and have a short shedding coarse coat. I don't know how to be around kids, or cats or small dogs. I'm just me and I'm too much for little animals or little people. In fact, if we could work it out, I'd do best as an only pet for now. So, bottom line is this... I'm scared and timid but will stand up for myself if I am forced to do so. What I need is somebody that will help me not feel so scared. Somebody who will take the time to be with just me and show me consistency and love and adoration and help me become a strong confident dog by fostering me or adopting me. If you are THIS person, if you are the one that thinks I'm worth saving, then please come meet me. - Thurman Make a donation in this dog's name at http://www.angelsrescue.org/donate.
