What kind of home would be best for me? Hank needs a kind, low-key and patient home that does not mind working with him. Hank came to the rescue from a very under-socialized environment. He has made lots of progress, but is still learning what being someone's pet really is. He is good with other dogs, but does not care for cats.
What is my personality like? Hank's story is more like a song. His past is rocky which is why he is so unsure of new people, but boy does this dog have potential. Hank has been with us for 6 months and it's so hard to believe that the terrified dog hiding in the back of his pen is now this bright vibrant lap dog. We have put real dedication into this guy and it surely shows. This insecure, troubled soul has turn into a glorified toy hoarder and a huge baby that loves to give kisses. All he really wants is just to be a families dog. Not a yard ornament. Not something to look at when you are bored. But a real part of your family. Mind you, Hank is still apprehensive of new people, but he has shown us if you are willing to try with him then he will most definitely try with you. Winning him over just takes a little time and his favorite snack of course - cheese puffs! He still needs leash work; we think he will learn successfully with time and a front walking harness.
How do I act when I meet new people? Weary of new people. It takes a little time but then he is basically a lap dog.
Tips and Tidbits: Hank can be VERY affectionate once he's comfortable with someone and he really loves cheese puffs!
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
