Timmy's Sad Expression
Looking into Timmy's eyes, one can see the gentle soul that lies beneath. A little bit of timid mixed with a whole lot of sweet makes one endearing dog. Timmy is a sensitive boy and his expressions convey this. He is slowly coming out of his shell in foster care and his playful canine ways are emerging. He is excellent with other dogs and loves to race and play tug. Every once in a while he'll get up the courage to sneak off with someone else's toy.

Loud noises and yelling frighten Timmy so he needs a fairly quiet home.
What strikes us most about these pictures is the sad expression on Timmy's face. Photo after photo, his expression rarely changes. His foster mom says she has seen him smile while playfully throwing a toy high into the air or racing through the backyard. Unfortunately, the smile was fleeting and replaced with this pensive look. Timmy looks as if he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's not scared dog, just a little worried.

Timmy craves an adoptive family who will provide him stability. He needs a safe place to rest his head each night and he needs to know he's loved. As Timmy relaxes, we are confident that the weight on his shoulders will ease and a heartwarming smile will emerge.

Timmy touches my heart. Our boston, Maisy is the sweetest, but she always acts a bit anxious, just as you described Timmy. Timmy, I hope you find your forever home soon!
