Hercules - Hercules - Hercules - what can we say about you besides you are one big ball of stubborn.

Hercules may be one of those dogs that we are unable to find a home for and may just end up as our Mascot.

He is just under two years old. He has been adopted twice. He made it 5 days the first time until he destroyed a door and several other items because he didn't want to be outside. The second time he made it a few hours (not even to his new home) and got returned as he tore up the inside of their car on the way home and got mouthy when told to stop.

In typical American Bulldog fashion, he is a big boy (at about 95 pounds) and all 95 pounds of him wants to do it his own way. He gets really nervous around here during open hours and therefore doesn't show very well when he has visitors.

He is great with people - and he does great here at the shelter in his kennel - never tears up a single thing (including his blanket or toys). We aren't quite sure why the change of behavior when he leaves here.

He is fully housebroken. He has to be the only animal in the home as he does not get along with other animals.

Really sad that this boy may never get the chance to know what a real home and the love of his own family is but around here we give him as much attention and love as possible.
