Dear, sweet Terrell had a difficult start.  Afraid of everyone and everything (except dogs!), Terrell has come a long way!  He is still a work in progress and will be while he makes the adjustment to a new home and family.  Any change to his normal will be cause for pause for him. Terrell is good with other dogs but was slightly nervous about the cat he met. Terrell's foster family will need to understand "slow and steady" will win the race. As he becomes more comfortable with his new surroundings, he will settle in to a new routine. Due to his tentative nature, Terrell would be most comfortable with children that are at least 10 years old. The perfect foster home would be with experienced dog owners. If you are interestd in providing Terrell with a foster home, please fill out the foster application and contact Jennie Krebs at
