FLUFFY – A1067261

***SAFE 03/23/16*** NEW HOPE NEEDED for FLUFFY, a fearful fellow who was very attached to his former owner. Please read his surrender notes; this shy neutered guy thrives on attention, but likes his independence as well. He was finally brought to the shelter for having supposedly bitten one of his owners, and a person wonders if his personality was just not an awesome fit for those folks. Fluffy needs a NEW HOPE RESCUE group to pull him to safety, and the rescue group will need a quiet, understanding foster/adopter who is willing to let Fluffy warm up to them on his own terms. That shouldn’t be too much to ask for, but that solution MUST be found tonight!
