My Story

A description of Simon from his current foster mom: I met Simon in October 2016 volunteering at PAWS and by November I was ready to introduce him to my husband and 2 dogs.  He had been at the shelter far too long and we wanted to see him shine. We have learned a lot about Simon since he came home with us.  He is extremely affectionate and lovable once he gets to know you.  Don't let his shyness fool you, He is a goofy boy who spins in circles when you pull his leash out. He walks beautifully on leash and is trained to look at you for treats in uncertain situations. Simon is quiet and calm as a house guest. He is happiest chewing bones, going for walks or getting brushed.  Any chance he gets he loves to snuggle on the couch. Simon is loved and loves going to Passage East for boarding.  Simon is also crate trained (which will come home with him). He has been extremely patient with my other 2 dogs as they adjust to him. He particularly likes my male dog.  Simon needs someone who is confident, kind and patient.  Once that bond is built with Simon it is unbreakable.


Simon is eligible for the PAWS senior pension plan which means no adoption donation required and some lifelong medical follow-up!
