Hoss was surrendered to a very rural shelter due to a possible chicken killing incident. He has less than a day to be rescued before he was to be killed by the shelter. The previous owner claimed that he is good with children, dogs, cats, horses, and cows. His foster mom says that he is good with dogs because he plays well with her dog.
Hoss loves to be outside. He loves his people and loves to be close to them. Hoss is a high energy dog and would be perfect in active home with family that can take him for daily walks and outings.
He answers to his name and responds to a firm "sit" command by laying down. Otherwise he still needs some basic manners training. Overall great dog. He weighs about 70 lbs and is a shepherd mix (really a true mutt).
If you'd like to meet Mr. Hoss to see if he would be a good fit, please fill out our adoption application. This application does not obligate you to anything. It just helps us match you with the perfect companion. www.nokill-louisville.com/adopt.htm
