Timothy's Profile

Hi, I’m Timothy!

The staff at the OHS call me a Bashful Buddy. Bashful Buddies are known for their slow starts in both exercise and relationships. Because of this, they tend to enjoy a predictable environment, a calm home, and consistent routine, and they really benefit from having someone that pays attention to their needs when they’re feeling uncomfortable. While they can take a little extra time to adjust to changes, once they settle in it will feel like they’ve always belonged! Bashful Buddies tend to need a modest amount of exercise and usually enjoy leisurely strolls around their neighbourhood and play sessions at home. Other activities that they may enjoy include work-to-eat games like food puzzles, training games, and searching out hidden treats. If you’re looking for a companion to share your quiet lifestyle with, consider a Bashful Buddy!

Bashful Buddies can have different ways of expressing themselves and it might take a little while to figure out their unique preferences. Once comfortable, some Bashful Buddies will enjoy lots of affection, while others may prefer less-interactive companionship. Taking time to find out your Bashful Buddies true personality will help you create positive interactions to help form a solid relationship.

I am looking for an adult-only home!

I don’t always appreciate unfamiliar dogs in my personal space and I’m not ready to make friends with every dog I meet. I need slow, gradual introductions when making new friends.

I have behavioural and medical needs; please contact an Adoption staff member to inquire about me “Timothy” shelter number A236329.
