Beast and Red are brothers who were surrendered by their elderly owner after they kept escaping from their dilapidated fence. They are shy because they never spent time around people other than their former owner, but they are gradually warming up to people — with the help of Sonic burgers! According to the Animal Control Officer and volunteers, they are allowing him to touch them and are starting to become playful, happy dogs again. Now they just need a good human who will love them in spite of their special socialization needs. They are great dogs. They just need to learn to trust people.

When they first came in, they hid behind their food bowls and wouldn’t let anyone touch them. As you can see from the last picture, Red is finally ready to play. Beast came out of his kennel yesterday and let a volunteer kiss his nose! They are shy, but they are learning that people aren’t so bad. They need special care, but they will be super dogs as long as they are treated gently and lovingly.
