BJ has done much better than I expected in his first week with us. Having been warned by multiple people about his shyness and fearfulness, and having witnessed it firsthand when I went to visit him in the shelter before we agreed to foster him, I thought that by the end of the first week he might still be hiding behind furniture and bolting whenever anyone approached.
Instead, BJ is an attention whore. He was cautious and shy for about the first half a day that we had him, and then he began to follow us around the house, soliciting petting and belly rubs and plopping down in any available lap. His fearfulness still re-emerges occasionally if he encounters a new person or noise, but basically, once he gets used to something he's completely fine.

He loves other dogs. He hasn't chewed anything he's not supposed to. He knows "sit" and "off," which is only necessary to use when he jumps up on your leg to request petting, because he doesn't counter surf or try to get on the kitchen table.

Please share his petfinder bio. He deserves a great home!
