Sosa is a sensitive sweetheart. He's also a fun, active dog who loves toys, water, walks and car rides. Born in 2014, Sosa was picked up as a stray and came to Best Friends from a shelter in Indiana. Because he was shy and fearful with strangers, especially when he was behind a fence or gate, he struggled in the shelter environment. Since coming to the Sanctuary, he's gotten much better at meeting new people and at taking breaks from his activity throughout the day.
Sosa appreciates having a predictable routine. He loves to lounge in the shade after playing in his kiddie pool. He also enjoys breaks in his crate where he can work on one of his favorite things: a frozen treat. Sosa loves doing agility and catches on quickly to new training cues. He's also learning to play with a flirt pole, which encourages him to chase and play with a toy on a long rope while helping him with impulse control. Sosa really likes hanging out with his friends at Dogtown. He's a good role model for other dogs, and he has plenty of play dates here. Sosa is working on getting more and more comfortable when he's out exploring new places. He's looking for a patient person or family who can help him learn about life in a home, since we believe he never had one of his own. Although he may need a slight adjustment period in a home, Sosa is a wonderful dog who bonds well with people and would probably do best with a dog friend to show him the ropes.
