; ; These are Hank's priorities. Hank is all about giving and getting LOVE. He is one of the happiest, sweetest creatures you will ever meet. He is very special and is going to make an awesome companion for some lucky somebody(s). Hank is cuddling in the lap of his foster dad right now, alive and well, due to his extraordinary temperament.
; ; Hank was lost and was found in Bakersfield, starved, bald and nearly blind. Given the hellish reality of Central Valley shelters, his awful condition and his breed- he was number one on The List'. Too weak to even lift his own big fat beautiful head, he was still wagging his tail, grinning and asking for belly rubs. His unconditional happiness inspired many people to move mountains to save his charming self. He was a great sport throughout all of the traumatic surgeries/treatments, and now is 100% healthy.
; ; Hank is a happy boy; Happy to cuddle, snuggle and sleep all day (a total couch potato); Happy to play with his foster dogs; Happy to ignore his foster cat; Happy to have his chin scratched by strangers (friendly and docile); Happy riding in the car; Happy to learn new tricks (smart, obedient and well-behaved). He is happy playing in water. He is happy hiking and running (strong and athletic). Hank is above all a lover and a pleaser; He is a people dog and is happiest when he is with his family, making them happy. He doesn't need to be in your lap all the time (OK, sometimes), but he is a velcro dog and wants to be with you. He would be a great dog to take to the office- or to sit at your feet while you work at home.
; ; At home, Hank is pretty much a perfect boy. However, like all of us, he isn't perfect. He is extremely curious and sensitive, but gets overexcited/overenthusiastic when out in the world. He was likely chained or penned up most of his life, so he is eagerly trying to catch up with all the overwhelming sights, sounds and smells around him. The more he covers new territory, the more
