Hank is handsome, nice boy! He is a young malamute/husky/shepherd mix, around 1-1.5 years old and 70 lbs.
Hank is very active and good natured and would love another young dog to play with. He likes to play with lots of toys and engages in chase, tug-o-war and rolling around in the grass with other dogs!
Hank is good with everybody! He gets along with men, women and children. Hank is one of those dogs that just loves to be "doted" on, and just loves to be hugged and kissed. He also enjoys being brushed which is great because regular brushing is necessary for Hank’s coat.
Hank knows the commands "sit,", "down," "catch," and "shake." He is house-trained, crate-trained, dog-door-trained and is currently being leash-trained. Hank is used to sleeping inside on a big plush dog bed and is quiet all night. He routinely stays in bed until his foster mom gets up.
Hank’s breed (Alaskan Malamute/Husky) are working dogs, so Hank must be exercised regularly. Since Hank is a young active dog and can be mischievous, crating will be necessary when you are away from home. Hank tolerates crating well and will go into his crate when requested. Hank was rescued from an Indian Reservation this summer with his sister, another husky, which since has been adopted and thriving in her new home.
Hank is a typical husky "talker" and whines and howls somewhat regularly to communicate with humans and other dogs. Hank is not a barker though.
Hank needs a home where he gets plenty of attention and exercise daily. A training class would likely be a good idea as well. Hank has a sweet disposition and will be a wonderful, loyal dog for someone who is willing to spend some quality time with him. Hank's adoption fee is $150. Hank is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on rabies and DAPP vaccinations. If you are interested in meeting Hank, please contact Delon.Washo@asu.edu or 602-295-4518.

Rescue Group Info...
AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!
Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!
In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program. So far in 2011, 148 pets have been spayed/neutered on the Reservation!
Pets are in foster homes, so meetings are set by appointment only.
All interested parties need to request and fill out an adoption application. Application fees vary depending on age, temperament and health of the dog. Typically puppies are $200-275 and adults are $100-175.
