Hero is house trained and behaves like a perfect gentleman at home. He loves toys of the Kong, chew, and rope varieties, as well as tennis balls. Turnoffs include strangers, being left alone for extended periods of time, and loud noises. We’re working with him to help with the fearfulness and to grow his confidence.
If you’re an experienced dog owner who can provide a quiet environment in an adult-only home, and you beam at the thought of unconditional love and adoration from a furry friend, come meet Hero.
I love playing with Kong toys
Squeak! Squeak! I love Squeaky chew toys!
I’ll take as much exercise as I can get!
Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all
I’m a people person!
I’m a star pupil at obedience training
You + a tennis ball = my perfect day
I need a little extra time to warm up to people I don’t know
Keep me company! I prefer homebodies who are often at home
I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded
I’d love to find an adults-only home
