Hershey is 2 years old (approx. DOB tbd), male, 18 lbs., vetted, is or will be neutered, and micro-chipped. Hershey was rescued from his home in South Carolina. Currently as a new rescue in Vermont he is very fearful in new situations and around new people. He needs an experienced home that knows how to help him gain trust and decompress. We feel he would be best in a home with another dog. His best home would be calm not busy; no young children. Once bonded he loves hard and is loyal and cuddly!
