This puppy and siblings were rescued from under an abandoned bus in a work area. Their mama has ventured off away from the pack to give birth and they were happy to stay where they were as it was shaded from the warm weather. Their mama April kept a close lookout but she was so sweet and allowed us to come close and give food for her and the pups. The babies were curious and came out to say hi. Shams is a very very sweet boy!
He needs an experienced and assertive owner to help him gain confidence. He needs a lot of structure and training.
