Needs A Home
Hi! The name’s Huck. Or Huckleberry. Or Good Boy. Heck, if you’ve got a treat on you, you can call me Shirley.
I’m a 70-pound goof ball, which initially led the Animal Aid staff to believe I was around one-year-old; turns out, however, I’m closer to four and just extra young at heart. For this reason, I still have a bit to learn about the proper way to socialize. I’m often intimidated by new people and places and need slow introductions and human companions who are dedicated to helping me work on my reactive behavior. Once I get to know you and feel comfortable with you, I’m all wags and kisses.
I’m super smart and highly treat-motivated, so my training has been going well so far, and I’m learning lots of new commands like “Go to bed,” “Wait,” “Stay,” “Come,” and “Easy,” on top of the basics I already knew like “Sit” and “Down” and “Shake.” I love going on walks, and if you’re looking for a running partner, sign me up! I also like my toys and will play fetch, but I’m not obsessive.
I will need a quiet home with one or two adults, no other animals, and a big fenced yard for me to run and play in. I’m looking for someone who is patient and has experience training dogs with similar needs. Help me see that the world isn’t such an intimidating place–not as long as I’m with you anyway.
