Hannah is a 9 year old spayed female Boxer/Pit Bull blend who came to the shelter as a stray. Hannah is currently in a foster home and although she loves her foster family, her dreams at night are of having her very own home. Hannahs foster family tells us she is very gentle with people, and has been around children of all ages with no issues. She is very easy going girl. She loves to be with her foster family, and will move from room to room to be with one of them. She likes to curl up under the computer desk when someone is sitting there. She likes attention and affection, but she isnt demanding of it. Hannah seems to like music, because when on the children is playing an instrument or singing, she makes a beeline for the room where they are, lies down and listens. She will actually lay under the piano when someone is playing. She is very good when given treats and is not a finicky eater. When someone comes to the door, Hannah will go to the door but does not bark. Hannah enjoys going for car rides and she looks forward to her daily walks. Because of Hannahs age she will walk for about 30 minutes or so, and then she starts to get sore and slows down, but is always eager to go again when its time. She likes walking along the river or next to a pond where she can wade/walk through the water. Hannah isnt much into playing with toys, but when in the mood she loves tug-of-war and fetching toys to shake them to death instead of actually bringing them back. Her favorite way to exercise is when someone holds the water hose on the jet setting and let her try to catch the water. She can do this for a long time without getting tired. When she thinks it is time for a walk, she will whine or come put her paws on your knees or your chair to make sure you know she is telling you something. Hannah is quiet in the house, very sweet, and easy to have around. When in the yard, she will bark when someone walks by. Hannah has not been taught any commands, except she will sit when told. Hannahs only negative is she has not been taught a lot of leash manners. She pulls hard and gets excited and lunges when she sees other dogs, cats, squirrels, etc. With some consistency and her willingness to please, this behavior could be corrected. If you would like to meet this lovely girl, please call the shelter to arrange a time.
Hannah is spayed, current on her vaccinations and microchipped.
