Shadow is a typical energetic young chin! He was surrendered by a young couple who were feeling overwhelmed with a new baby, and decided Shadow deserved more attention. We are happy to have this little guy here! He loves to eat, loves to shred his chew toys, and also loves people!
When Shadow first came to us he had a very bad case of conjunctivitis in one of his eyes. He was in the animal hospital for about a week and a half, and we actually thought he was going to lose the eye. After eye drops and systemic antibiotics for about a month it finally cleared up! It was painful for him, and because of all the weeks of treatment he is very phobic of people grabbing him out of the cage. He will bite if you force him out! If you let him come to you, he is a content, happy guy.
Shadow is an extremely sweet boy, and will need someone willing to go slow with him, and let him come out in his own time. We promise that with a few weeks of this sort of positive interaction, he will gain his trust of people back and be the wonderful, happy boy he was before his awful eye infection.
