play ball?? White Sox, Cubbie??
me slide on into your heart!! Won't you??
is an 8-year-old Dober-gent who came to us from a shelter
in Tennessee after his owner abandoned him when the cause
of his skin issues couldn’t be determined. Even though
he is 8 years old he is perky and likes to go for walks,
so don’t tell him he’s got gray on his muzzle!
Although he might not be the most handsome dog on the block,
we’re betting he’s got the best personality
and demeanor. He’s just a really good and sweet boy!
As far as his skin issues are concerned, our vet does suspect
he may have some demodectic mange (not contagious) or perhaps
a grain allergy. His hypothyroidism (needs daily inexpensive
medication) surely doesn’t help since hypothyroidism
also causes the hair to thin and can contribute to hair
loss. We ran updated blood-work and will have medications
adjusted accordingly. Don’t let that deter you from
adopting this sweet boy because he might just be the greatest
dog there is! He is cool as a cucumber with the laid back
dogs in his foster home but a dog with everlasting energy
would probably annoy him. Hank has a low prey drive and
completely ignores the cats. Actually, when he was hissed
at, he a took a leap back! Little kids might be too much
for him but he’ll be a great friend for children 7
and up. Hank is a total smoosh with his people and hasn’t
met a stranger. When we took him to the vet, he had to greet
everyone within reach with a Doberman nose nudge. Hank is
house trained and does his business quickly outside. He
behaves well gated to the kitchen and his foster doesn’t
think he will need to be in a crate, but perhaps a safe
segregated area of the home. For obedience, he knows the
command ‘sit’ but not much more. He is VERY
treat motivated and has tons of spunk so will enjoy learning
more commands. He’s just a wonderful lover-boy who
wants to snuggle up and get the attention he deserves. If
you want to be the lucky person to adopt this fantastic
Needs if any: inexpensive thyroid meds.
