Success Story: Hank

5 Feb

Well, hello there. My name is Hank, and I’m a 16-month-old bundle of love. I was dropped off at a shelter with a horrible case of demodex. I was missing most of my hair on the lower part of my body, my legs and paws were super swollen, and my face was covered in scabs. That’s a lot for a young kid to deal with.

With a little TLC, I am coming back around to my handsome self. My hair is growing back, and I am looking good as new. I love to play with toys and play fetch, I am really good on walks, and I am house trained. I will sleep in a crate or on a bed, whichever you choose, but my favorite is in a bed.

My foster mom is working with me to behave better around other dogs, but I’m a little stubborn when it comes to that. One thing I do know is that I don’t like little yippy dogs, and most males I have a problem with. But I do love my foster bully sister. See, I’m not a total hater.

Since I’m still a puppy, I do sometimes like to chew, so if you really think something is important, you probably should put it out of my reach. Otherwise, I have a stuffed duck and a Kong that are my favorite toys in the world. I love kids of all ages. You just have to watch me around the little ones, because when I get excited I jump up, and I love to lick little feet and hands.

I am really good with all of my grooming. I will let you clean my ears, face, and trim my toenails. That whole bath thing is overrated, so I sometimes will try to sneak out, but if you tell me no, I listen and stay put so you can finish washing me. I even let you brush my teeth without any hassle. Hey, chicks dig a man who is up on his hygiene; right? I will need to be on Promeris for the rest of my life to make sure that nasty demodex doesn’t come back. I could probably benefit from some obedience classes — that would be so much fun for us to learn together.

Hank is now adopted, living with a military family. He had a bully sister who passed a few months ago. He has a human brother and sister. He is doing great – the family loves him to pieces! ~Tami
