THIS GORGEOUS BOY LOOKS SO CONFIDENT IN HIS PICTURE, BUT HE IS TIMID AND A BIT FEARFUL, HOWEVER, NOT FROM AN AGGRESSIVE STANDPOINT.  
KALEP DOES VERY WELL WITH OTHER DOGS, IS COMFORTABLE WITH THEM, MORE COMFORTABLE WITH DOGS THAN HUMANS RIGHT NOW. 
WHO KNOWS HIS PAST, BUT HIS FUTURE NEEDS A FAMILY THAT WILL BE PATIENT AND CARING WITH HIM, LET HIM COME AROUND ON HIS OWN TERMS + I'M SURE IT WOULD HELP TO HAVE ANOTHER DOGGIE FRIEND FOR HIM.

I have a special place in my heart for Kalep.
I've known him since early April when he came to BARC.
It was obvious from the beginning he was a fearful young man.  I tried to spend time with him to show him that humans can be kind and he need not fear a loving hand.  He got adopted and returned a little over a month later.  Nothing wrong that he did.
If he did make progress in his new home, it was all for naught, because he returned as the same fearful dog.
He doesn't show well to adopters looking for that immediate connection upon walking up to a kennel.
He cowers if you stand and look at him, and views the leash going over his head as some form of punishment.
Poor baby.
Once outside, he's a different dog.  He will still dance around you and tease you that he's going to come up to you and let you love on him.  You can see in his eyes that he so desperately wants to trust you. 
Kalep must have thought I was running a concubine at BARC yesterday, because I let him spend at least an hour with three different beautiful ladies in the same run.  He did fantastic with each one.  He wasn't over the top with any, just enjoyed their company then went about his own business.  He's not a "hide in the corner" type dog at all.  He was front and center and enjoying his time outside.  If you catch him in a moment when he thinks he can't dodge you, he'll lay down and let you rub him all over.  He has that "oh no" look on his face, but there is zero aggression in this sweetheart, just a vulnerable soul waiting to give someone his love.
Kalep is another dog who looks bigger in photos than in reality.  He is compact, won't take up a lot of room.
He's also ready for offsite.  He could of course use more human socialization, but if that right person comes along, Kalep will make an easy transition.  We know he likes other dogs. 
Kalep needs out of a loud shelter and into a loving home.
Please place a hold.
