Hansel is a beautiful senior boy. Best guess is that he is a Schipperke. He is about 11 years old. He is currently with Linda Heyden for foster and has settled in very well. He gets along with all of her dogs and doesn't seem to have any issues with cats.
He is not a very big boy - only about 25 pounds. He is housebroken for the most part but will mark if another dog has gone potty inside. He is crate and leash trained. He is a little stiff when he first start moving for the day but is managing to keep up with Linda's active dogs.
In the past it was reported that he had "stress seizures" when he would get really stressed out but he had none transitioning to us/Linda. He was a little afraid the first day but by the end of the day he was all about belly rubs and sitting on your lap on the couch.
He is neutered, current on his shots, heartworm negative and micro-chipped.
He would be an excellent companion for an older person who spends lots of time sitting around and willing to give belly rubs. A couple of good walks a day and he will be one happy camper.
Hansel is out in a foster home and if you are interested in him an appointment would need to be set up to meet him.
