Shakespeare is truly one of the best fosters I've every had! He's very calm, sweet, quiet and loving. He is not needy or starved for attention although he loves getting it.

Milo is a timid dog the first couple of weeks in a new home, but once he warms up, he will sleep in your lap, give kisses, greet you at the door and sit with you on the sofa. The perfect home will be understanding and patient and have experience with shy dogs. Ideally, it will be a quiet one without loud noises that could frighten him in the beginning.
