Hercules is a shy, timid boy but once he trusts you he is a velcro pup. This little guy takes time to warm up and needs a slow intro to people and other dogs. No aggression, he just gets scared, so we suggest an adult home where someone works at home and wants a dog to be close. Hercules's foster writes: "He is shy and submissive, a quiet gentle pup." Hercules is good on a leash, is housetrained and submissive to other dogs. "You have to be careful he is not with a dog that will bully or run him over. He also needs someone at home, he is not a dog to be left alone, he needs closeness, once he trusts he is safe with you." A resident dog at home who is as low key as he is would be best. His foster writes, "Hercules takes his own time trusting you, but once he does he sticks to you like glue. He's the sweetest boy who wants to sit in his person's lap and sleep right beside you as a snuggle buddy. Hercules deserves someone who will return all the love he gives. Sweet little guy."
