About Hank

Adoption Fee: 200
Pit Bull / Lab
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Meet Hank! This handsome fellow is around 3yrs old and is said to be a pitty-lab mix. Like most bullies with this happy go-lucky mix, he is a people pleaser and a lover. For whatever reason, when his family moved they did not take him and left him with another family member out in the country. This is where things became tough for poor Hank and he was basically left to fend for himself. The neighbors in this area believe that he was bullied by the other dog of that house out of being able to eat - hence why he is so skinny. There also an abundance of wildlife out here and it's said that he has gotten in fights with raccoons - which is sadly the other dogs main source of food. After a week of antibiotics, full meals and cleaning wounds he looks and feels so much better! Because of the family he came from, drives through this area often, I'd like to move him as quickly as possible. I'd hate to see the emotional progress he has made decline, so I'm listing him now to set up a foster to adopt with a family. Here is what you will want to know. He is used to little humans and loves them! He is a family type dog and obviously can not handle the life of an outside dog. He loves to snuggle or simply lay by your feet. I have tested him with cats and ignores them. Other dogs I will recommend a couple of Meet-& Greets to insure compatibility. He has been around another unaltered male and did fine. When meeting my crew of 3 bossy females and an old male, introductions were slow. I have not crate tested him, mainly because he does just fine out of it. Doesn't dig in the trash and is house trained. Hank also does very well off leash and recalls quickly. But with all dogs, if you have an unfenced yard....you are going to need to teach him the boundaries and watch him. Dogs don't need to be wandering and possibly getting hit. This will be a stipulation for adoption. On leash, he walks nicely and hasn't pulled! So with most bullies, he would benefit from lots of walks to keep him happy! When it comes to feeding, he has been bullied out of food and obviously starved. So I will recommend scheduled meal times and separate from other dogs. This is a rule of thumb for a dog that has been starved or has had to find food on their own. He is microchipped and is said to be UTD...but I am still trying to find what vet he has been at. He needs to be neutered. He will come with a Spay/Neuter contract until he has gained enough weight to safely be neutered. Which vet and adoption fee's are semi negotiable. Please contact me with any other questions or if you are interested in meeting Hank!
