Meet our own Sonic the Hedgehog! He needs a little bit of time to warm up to new people but once you're his buddy, he's all in! Sonic loves to roll over and give you his tummy to rub, and then when that's done, he pops up and backs it in so you can scratch that little booty next! Sonic is a fetch master, and is often seen trotting around the shelter campus with a tennis ball in his mouth. It appears to be self-soothing for him, and it helps reduce some stress-related behaviors. On last month’s shelter dog hike with the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group at the shelter), we are proud to say that not only was Sonic the leader of the pack, he was also a #VGB (very good boy)! Sonic made a few new human friends, enjoyed the excitement of a new environment, and was the happiest we've seen him in a long time! We found him curled up sleeping in his kennel later that day, probably dreaming about his next adventure!Sonic is that perfect compact size, around 50 lbs, with a gorgeous brindle coat and cute little teefers. He does need a home with no other pets or small children. Sonic would do best in a lower-traffic home with someone who's willing to go at his pace. In return, you will have the unconditional love and affection of one incredibly sweet doggy!Sonic will go home with support from the Orange Dot Crew, a goody bag of enrichment items, and free training support thanks to Friends of AAC and their Behavior Assistance Program! Sonic has had a pretty rough go at life so far, and is definitely due for some good luck to head his way.
