|Personality:|| High Energy | Hank has been at the Monroe County Animal Control since 2013, he s the longest time resident. Breed: Akita/American Bulldog-mix Sex: Male Age: 2 years Size: Medium-compact Coat-color: White with some tan markings Group: Working (Spitz-type)/Working - Companion Energy level: Moderately-high An active, athletic, and highly-intelligent dog who is calm and well-mannered when his exercise needs are met, Hank will require daily physical and mental challenges to stay happy and healthy. Playful, curious, sweet, and self-possessed, this noble canine lives to fulfill his role of faithful companion. As befitting both, his spitz-like and bulldog ... (Read More)heritage, he can at times be independent and stubborn, but he is also attentive and quick to please when given direction from his handler. Although he may come off as aloof when meeting new people, this handsome boy is infectiously happy and completely silly when comfortable in his surroundings. Utterly devoted and affectionate with people he knows and trusts, it will be important to keep him well-socialized as he'll have a tendency to become protective of his family members otherwise. A sensitive, genuinely warm and sincere dog who thrives on human companionship, he is looking for responsible owners willing to provide structure and confident, consistent leadership on a daily basis. Hank is currently working on his leash skills and receiving good manners training with Monroe SPCA. A people-pleasing canine when he knows what is expected of him, this boy has a strong work ethic and he'll excel in obedience. He's attentive and well-mannered on a leash; extremely attuned to his handler. Hank is the Monroe County Animal Shelter's Featured Pet of the Month and its longest term resident. We think it's high-time for him to have a home to call his own. His adoption will be through Monroe SPCA; he will be neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption. We are currently looking for a foster or permanent home for Hank. For more information about fostering or adopting him please contact Monroe SPCA Adoption Coordinator at 734-365-9294 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the MCAC shelter during business hours (listed below). Hank is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. Although not necessary, he would make an excellent hiking, jogging, or cycling partner. As with all Monroe SPCA adoptable pets, a home visit and meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be required prior to adoption. Hank currently resides at the Monroe County Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 911 South Raisinville Road, Monroe, MI 48161. You can meet him during regular shelter hours; Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 am until 3:00 pm, and Saturday, 9:00 am until 2:00 pm.

Dogs selected for this program were partnered with the owner of Dogs Gone Running, also a long-distance runner, getting an opportunity to burn pent-up energy and stretching their legs in a vigorous, leashed run. Canine participants in this program had to be readily accepting of strangers, well-mannered on a leash, and understanding of the concept paced run going forward. The run rotation for each dog was once every other week and then twice every other week. Each dog participating in this awesome program ran approximately 1 to 1.5 mile each trek. Upon return from runs, dogs first happily greeted all with wagging tails. They then ate, then drank, and then slept, quite soundly, the remainder of the day - without exception, every dog, every time, in precisely that order. contact bubbles Contact info Shelter: Monroe County Animal Shelter Phone: (734) 240-3125 Fax: (734) 240-3130 E-mail: email@example.com Website: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Monroe-County-Animal-Shelter-MI/326706497433681 Address: 911 S.
