What kind of home would be best for me: Hudson is looking for a home where he will be the only pet and where his family wants to give their heart to one dog. Having grown up in a hoarding situation, and learning to be top dog, Hudson is used to being the man. He is picky about his friends and is direct in letting others know if they are not a friend. Hudson is not suited for a home with other small animals (dogs, cats, etc.) and has never lived with children. For the family that simply wants a best canine friend, he will give you his heart.
What is my personality like: Hudson arrived in rescue as part of a hoarding case. He was clearly one of the top dogs in the pack and learned to be this way from his circumstances. Because of this, he is a forward and assertive loud mouth dog. He learned to be the big man on his mountain. He does seem friendly and outgoing but his friends and play times have been limited and monitored. He was recently altered and we believe over time he may be ok to have furfriends visit and not stay too long in his area. But for now, he would do best as an only dog baby in the house. We would also advise no cats or small dogs in his home. Hudson is likely not a dog that you will ever take to the dog park or put into play groups.
Around people, Hudson is an awesome guy. He is curious and super friendly. He is eager to please and has a drive to make everyone around him happy. He now is learning how to respond to verbal cues, but at the moment he does not understand how to come, sit or lay, and he will need more training with his leash skills. He would love for his new people to help him finish maturing into a well rounded smart individual. We see he has potential. Even though Hudson seems like a velcro dog, he still can be startled and may have potential to run off, so we would require a fenced in area for this guy to have access to. Hudson is now crate trained and we would recommend him having one in his new home. He has never experienced a life inside a home and will require patience and boundaries.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Hudson is curious and happy to see his caregivers. This gives us great hope that he can transition into a house pet fairly easily. With basic structure and guidance, this guy will thrive because he is so eager to please his people.
Tips and Tidbits: Hudson is estimated at 5 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 12/3/2017.
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.
