About Hank

Adoption Fee: $50
German Shepherd / Pit Bull
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hank was found wandering the train tracks in southeastern Colorado in January of 2018 when he was just a puppy. He's very loving and cuddly and loves his humans, but he does have some anxiety. According to his DNA results he's half purebred German shepherd and half pit bull/Australian cattle dog/golden retriever, He is fine when left alone (he was crate trained as a puppy, but doesn't use a crate anymore, and he's not destructive at all when left alone), but you can tell he doesn't like it because he is so very happy when you come home at the end of the day. He's a very trainable dog and knows all basic obedience commands (sit, stay, wait, lay down, etc.) and can even do some fun tricks like shake, bow, roll over, etc. and is house-trained. He needs a big fenced-in yard to run around and play in, but is usually fine to lay around all day after a morning/evening walk. He goes to the vet regularly and is all up-to-date on everything. Because of his anxiety he has high impulsivity and will sometimes attack other dogs in situations he finds stressful (has drawn blood but the other dogs did not need emergency medical attention and none went to the vet as far as I know). His ideal home would be an experienced adopter with no children or other pets. To be very plain, we have two children that he gets along very well with, but after the birth of our second child the dynamic between him and our other dog changed and he attacked her (no major harm done). Their dynamic has been off since, and he needs to be in a new home. Recommending a home with no kids as he seems to be protective of his owners, that, coupled with his high impulsivity, could be an issue for visitors (especially child visitors). But he is very loving and affectionate and is the kind of dog that would pull you out of a burning building. Trying to find a permanent home that would suit him better than our situation.
