LOCATION: Fort Worth, Texas DOB: 8/8/2021 Those eyes! Talk about baby blues! Hunter, a strikingly handsome Great Dane mix, is a true heart-stealer with his deep love for people, natural protective instinct, and a heart of gold. He's the perfect addition to any loving home, bringing both beauty and loyalty in equal measure. His affection for humans is endearing. He adores spending time with his foster family, showering them with loyalty and a watchful eye. Whether he's cuddling on the couch or following his family around the house, Hunter's devotion is unwavering. On the practical side, Hunter is completely potty trained and has proven trustworthy without the need for a crate when unsupervised. He has a playful, silly side that makes him tons of fun. His freedom within the home is expanding gradually, and he's shown obedience and patience, often waiting by the door for his foster family to return. Hunter is also learning to play peacefully with his canine companions. He's making progress in redirecting his energy and enthusiasm appropriately, enjoying the company of other dogs and learning to refine his play style. Despite his size, he remains calm around smaller dogs and shows no signs of aggression towards cats. Occasionally, he may give chase, but he responds well to redirection and is learning to be gentle. Hunter's early life was undoubtedly challenging, but he's transitioning remarkably well into a loving home environment. Slow introductions are essential for him to feel comfortable and secure, strengthening the bonds he forms with his new family.
