Hertz is a 3-year-old pittie with beautiful green eyes, a golden-brown coat, and adorable white markings including 'dipped' toes. He is 48 pounds of handsome and machismo! This strong boy loves nothing more than to run, play and join in on the fun. Watch his videos to see how great he is with other dogs!
Hertz was saved from a high-kill shelter in California after months and months of waiting, and is finally in Seattle waiting to find his forever home. He was pretty impressive off transport - he was excited, friendly, and ready to hang. He has been placed with a foster so that we can help him acclimate to life outside of the shelter and learn all about him!
FOSTER UPDATE 8/29: He's doing so well - you'd never know that he'd been in boarding for a year. He gets along really well with our puppy Izzy and totally tolerates her puppy energy, as well as my neighbors 8-month-old shepherd. Izzy and Hertz even shared the couch together for some lounging. We have yet to test his behavior around a more dominant male.
5 star kiddo status! Even with a pack of neighborhood kids hanging at my house, he never once exhibited a sign of being nervous. He jumps a little, but didn't do it to any of the kids, and he's learning quickly. I even think he'd do well with toddlers - but of course this would need to be tested.
He rarely barks, even when someone knocks at the door. He knows when to relax and chill out but can do sprints in the yard. Not one potty accident in the house. Overall - he's a really good boy with a great temperament and he's going to make a great dog for some lucky family!
