Huckleberry is one lucky little guy! He was found running across a very busy highway during rush hour traffic. He was so thankful to be found by a rescuer and some tasty cheeseburgers that he immediately shared loads of kisses with his new friends!
Mr. Huckleberry is now living in a foster home where he is learning that home life is way better than that of a street dog! His foster family includes 3 older children and 2 larger resident dogs. He has also been exposed to VERY large dogs and smaller dogs. He is learning a lot about being a family dog, including boundaries and manners. He has learned sit, off, kennel up, load up (to get in the car, which he was a little scared of at first), down, and is now house broken. He is very treat motivated, so training is pretty easy!
Huckleberry may be full grown, but he still thinks like a puppy. He has a very spirited play style. Not every dog appreciates his constant need to wrestle and play, so an introduction to other pets would be necessary -- just to make sure Huck is not too much energy for them. He loves to run and wrestle and he LOVES toys! Huck would benefit from obedience classes. Learning commands and even tricks actually helps him learn his place and gives him a job or purpose. Huck would also benefit from a fenced back yard with an active family and/or another high-energy canine playmate.
Huck does best with dogs that can kind of take the lead and teach him his place in the family. He does not do as well with submissive dogs. He really depends on other dogs to set the tone and expectations he should follow.
All in all Huckleberry is a sweet and loving dog who is going to make his new family very happy. He just wants to be loved on (did I mention how much this boy loves a good belly rub?) and pampered with all kinds of hugs and toys!
If you think Huckleberry would be a great addition to your family and you are ready for a sweet and energetic young man please don't hesitate -- Apply today!
