Hi! Im Hank! Im a sweet boy that was picked up by the Sheriff as I was wandering around. I had a chain collar imbedded in my neck. I dont like being pulled around my neck anymore. But I am able to use a harness leash!

I am a big boy and laid back. I can bark but I dont. Im very loving and love to be around my humans. Did you need help in the bathroom?

I currently live with my foster brother whos 16 months old and my foster sister whos almost 4. We have a good time together playing in the yard and in the living room. My foster brother likes to play rough but I dont mind and will easily lay on my back so they can play with me.

I havent learned how to go on long walks yet because Im in heartworm treatment. I dont like the crate but sleep in the bathroom because its nice and cool and dark in there. Im housetrained so I dont cause a mess. If I need to go out and the doggy door is closed, I will come and whimper and touch you with my nose.

My foster brother taught me that chasing squirrels is fun! I havent caught one, but it DOES seem fun! Im getting used to the idea of having food available to me on a schedule. Im so used to having to search for my food. My foster Mom and Dad are fattening me up since Im a little thin!

I would love to find my furever home. Im a really good boy with a great smile and just want a human to love me and let me give them kisses. I havent been around children but Im kinda big and not really aware of my size so I can knock people over accidentally.

Please consider adding me to your home. I promise to give you lots of kisses!

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
