 This handsome hunk is Hambone! If you're looking for well mannered boy who still likes to have fun, he's your guy! According to his foster mom, Hambone is fully house-broken and is very respectful of house rules, he is great about signaling when he needs to go potty. He loves playing with his tennis balls, napping on soft things, cuddling, and getting belly rubs. Hambone loves other dogs, he gets very excited when he sees them out on walks. He can be a bit pushy when he meets dog friends, so he would do best with a tolerant, large dog. A home with no small dogs or cats would be best for now. Hambone could live with dog experienced kids of any age. He has some arthritis so he has a bit of a tough time with stairs, but he's been managing in our apartment. Hambone currently takes a daily medication for his arthritis, and an adopter should monitor his mobility and pain with a full service vet. He's generally a really happy guy and just wants to be around his people, he'd love to join you as a new forever pet.
