Hi, I'm Hank!
I'm a male American bully, about 4 years old and 75 pounds, who came to CARES as a stray. Nobody ever showed up to claim me, so now I'm eager to meet my new family! Maybe it's you!
The shelter staff says I am just about the sweetest, goofiest dude they've ever here! Even though I'm a pretty beefy guy, I am totally a 'gentle giant,' and can be surprisingly nimble and dainty for my size (although I can get a little goofy and hyper when I'm really excited and having fun). They describe my personality as fairly laid-back, very loving and friendly, and super-smart. They say you'll instantly fall in love with my soulful eyes and my big smile!
I am very affectionate, and will smother you with slobbery kisses, especially if you have treats! I know basic commands, am housebroken, and adore all kinds of people. Whoever had me before socialized me pretty well, and I've done good with most of the other dogs I've met at the shelter (and I absolutely go crazy-tail-wagging happy when I see a puppy!). Unfortunately, I do not do well with kitties.
I will need a forever home that can give me plenty of daily attention, affection, and exercise. I love my walks and play time, and do well on-leash, although I could use some work on pulling.
So if you're interested in adding a 'gentle giant' fur-buddy like me to the family, stop into CARES or call about meeting me today!
My adoption fee is $160, which includes my neuter surgery, flea treatments, up-to-date vaccinations, and microchip.
Note: As of 3/2/17, I am still waiting to get neutered, and will be available for full adoption after that--in the meantime, I am available for meet-and-greets, adoption deposits, and to foster.
