Huckleberry might be an older dog, but he is still young at heart. He is good with other dogs and good with cats. And as his foster mom says, "he's soooo house trained, it's crazy!" Huckleberry is a low maintenance dude, who loves to nap by a warm fireplace and may take some coaxing to go out in the snow. He tends to favor women more than men when it comes to his interpretation of pack structure. Don't let his chill appearance fool you though, Huck loves to run around the dog park and play with other dogs. He would do well in most homes with the right structure, consistent guidance and strong leadership. Huck likes to let you know when he is excited - when his people return home, when he is in play, when he is refereeing the other dogs around him - but we are working on proper manners and he is an excellent student. He also makes a good guard dog and will vocalize when a stranger approaches his home. Huck would be a fabulous candidate for scent work, and this would also provide him with the mental stimulation he craves. Huck came into rescue because he was used as a hunting dog and when his owner no longer had time for him, he surrendered him to the local kill shelter. If you can give this older gentleman the type of home where he will thrive, please fill out an application. Huck will give you many years of love and companionship.
Medical Note: Huck has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He is on daily medication to manage this issue and doing well; this medication costs about $15/month.
