Hello, I am Banjo, a sweet and handsome Japanese Spitz cross of 5 years, who loves treats and enjoys spending time with his doggy friends.

Before I was rescued, I was living in appalling conditions. I was kept in a small room that was never (literally never!) cleaned. As you can imagine, this had a big impact on me. When my rescuers found me, I was completely shut down and terrified of people.

During my time here at the shelter, I have made several steps in the right direction. But I’m not going to lie, I’m still very shy and scared to be touched. That’s why I am looking for a forever home where my new human friends don’t think in limitations, but in possibilities. People who will show me love, patience and support. People who will continue to stand by my side as we go through the learning process together.

The fact that I’m still a bit scared of human touch doesn’t mean that I don’t love my human friends. I just show my love in a different way than most other dogs. When I see my favourite caretakers, I start wagging my tail non-stop. And when they’re not looking, I will come very close to them to sniff their scent. It might seem not like a lot, but for me these are big steps forward.

A while back I took another big step: I went outside to the playground. It was a lot of fun to play with my friends and have a good run. So now I’m making regular trips there. 😊

I would love to make even more progress in the future. Hopefully with my new family by my side, supporting me all the way.
