“Hi I’m Hank! I am what you get when you mix a Rottweiler with a Doberman.  At 8 years old I find myself in need of a new home, and very soon. I never thought this would be the case and I’m sure my person never thought he’d have to give me up but he got something I’ve heard his family call “dementia” and he could no longer take care of me nor his other 2 dogs, my friends, anymore.

“My friends found other homes but I am still without a forever home. Extended family is keeping me safe but they can’t do that indefinitely.  My 2 dog friends were girls who were both smaller than me. I’m a boy and I weigh 68 pounds. I guess that means I am “big” and it’d probably be best if I found another home with females because no one has seen me around males. I have lived with cats before and done fine. I can’t recall ever meeting a child but I would guess older kids, maybe 10 years old and over would be nice to have around. As long as they are kind and gentle to me.

“People say I’m easy and mellow. I don’t bark much at all. I am good on leash and appreciate short daily walks. I can manage quite a while between potty breaks but no one likes to hold it too long! I like my dog bed inside the house and I will behave when the humans leave the house. Ideally I’d have some company, perhaps another friendly doggy buddy, for companionship.

“My new human should be able to afford vet care and good quality dog food for me. No one knows when I last saw a vet for a thorough check up but they will tell you that I just got my shots! At this time I can still do stairs but I hope I won’t have to do a lot of them as I get older. Senior dogs can get achy joints and our eyes don’t allow us to see peripherally which can make a home with a lot of stairs hard on us.

“I lived with my person my entire life, since I was a wee puppy. I miss him but I have hope that my next home will be for the rest of my life. I can learn to love again. I am a loyal, loving and well-mannered fellow who is ready to join my new family ASAP!”
