Booker is a complicated but very endearing little guy.

The very tip of his left ear is gone and he has a slightly chipped tooth on the same side. Was Booker attacked by another dog? We don't know, but he shows some signs of fear aggression with certain other dogs and nearly all people, except those in his small circle of trust.

But inside his foster home, Booker is a delight 95% of the time. He's a curious little boy, who likes to jump up on desks and tables to be on eye level with you and to see what you're doing.

He is an extremely attentive little guy, who wants to please his person--as long as he's not fixated on something else.

Here, he is intently studying the movement of water in one of the pets' water dishes.

He is in the process of learning that this mat is a good place to go to calm down (and get a treat).

Booker is learning that the mat is his go-to place, no matter where it might be found.

Initially Booker wanted to attack the kitty (seen at the top). Now, with daily medication and management (we purchased a safe place for kitty), Booker can observe the cat, as he's doing here, without feeling the need to bark.

He's such a smart cookie. It only took him one day to learn how to file his front nails on a board with sandpaper.. Next he will try to learn the back paws.

Every night, he locates his stuffed heart...

... and brings it up to the bedroom.

He sleeps soundly like a baby.

Booker enjoys watching DOGTV! It’s a non threatening way for him to hear lots of sounds and to see people and dogs having fun.

Sometimes he just likes to be a goofball.

Even in the middle of the day, Booker likes to chill in this cozy cocoon. His foster mom has promised him that he can take it with him when he gets adopted.
