About Hank

Adoption Fee: $200
Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Meet Hank, also known as Hank-a-roooo or Hankleberry Finn. Hank is a pit mix that will be 4 years old in mid-October. Hank is a little stout and weighs just under 76 lbs , he could stand to lose 3 - 5 lbs. Hank is current on all his vaccinations and is completely house broken and neutered. He does great with a doggie door and would do best in a fenced back yard with room for zoomies and sunbathing. Hank gets along with non-aggressive females but is very picky with the males that he will be friends with, and he needs to be the pack alfa. Hank loves cats but will chase and play with them, he forgets his size and strength and must be supervised when around a cat or it does not turn out well for the cat. Hank does not like bunnies, deer or coyotes. Hank loves people and is a big marshmallow. He has been around young children (4-year-old) and there were no issues. Hank loves to sunbathe, camp, swim, play with toys and fetch. Toys should be strong and durable or will not last a day. When fetching, bringing the object back to be thrown again needs some fine tuning. Hank would be just as happy to spend a gloomy rainy day napping on the sofa or snuggled in a blanket with his human watching tv. Hank is leash trained, but this skill could use some work. Hank knows simple commands such as sit and stay. He will sit when asked at a bowl of food and will eat when given the verbal 'ok'. Hank is very food motivated. He loves food but forgets to chew, he currently eats from a snail bowl to slow him down. Hank does not like the rain but does like the snow especially wearing a coat. He gets cold easy but can wear his coat all day and hang outside. Hank loves to be included and is always up for a ride in the car, he does get anxious if left alone in the car and will eat something he is not supposed to. Hank would prefer to sleep on the bed with his human but is fine sleeping in a large crate/kennel that provides him sufficient room to stretch and turn his circles before settling in for the night. Hank would do best in a family as the only dog or with a single non-aggressive female. He gets overwhelmed and aggressive with a large dog population so large doggie day care environments are not a good fit.
