Personality: Memphis is a sweet dog who really wants to be loved by humans and other dogs.  He feels safe in his crate and is housebroken. There are children in his foster home and he does not jump on people. 

Memphis plays well with the foster family dogs and he likes to be where they are. He doesn’t seem to be phased by the family cats. When a leash is put on him, he will not move as he is afraid of anything that involves the leash. 

He hasn’t done any ball chasing or retrieving yet or had the opportunity to swim. He does gather toys in a safe place, be it in the crate, under the stairs, or in the yard. He eats well and doesn’t take the other dogs’ food. It’s been a challenge to get him on a regular sleep schedule. He wakes up every 2 to 3 hours.  Memphis is extremely shy and timid around people and likes other dogs and wants to play with them.

Memphis is currently working with a trainer to help build his confidence and trust in people.  Stay tuned as we learn how he progresses.

Ideal Home: He is a sweet, smart boy and should be a great dog for a family willing to invest time, love, and attention in him. He really needs a home that can bring out his true personality and he can learn to be himself. Memphis needs lots of attention and training to bring him out of his shelf. A family with another dog would be perfect as well.
