My name is Banjo, and I am a 3-year-old, 7-pound male Pom mix. I am a shy boy. I lived on the streets of Las Vegas for a long time and often had to guard my food. It takes some time for me to build trust and be comfortable around people and other dogs. I get apprehensive when I first meet new people, but once I feel comfortable, I will come and ask for kisses and cuddles. I would probably do best in a home with older children, but my foster family does not have any children at all, so I am not sure if I like them. I do get along with other dogs, but I tend to get crabby if they come closer than I want. I like them, but sometimes I just don’t feel like playing. My foster mom keeps telling me I need to learn how to be a dog again. She is showing me lots of love and giving me lots of time to decompress. She thinks I would do great in a home with another submissive or calm dog, or I could even be an only dog. I like to have a place to be alone sometimes, so my foster family set up a special place for me. I will go lay down on my bed and relax often. I just got neutered too. It wasn’t fun for me, but I have been getting lots of love and I am feeling better. I am ready to find my forever home and I hope someone will give me a chance to show them what a good boy I can be.
