Story
Hawk is a 5 year old male 65lbs- pit mix born on 8/28/18. He is an intelligent athlete. His speed and agility is matched by his willingness to please. He'll play fetch for hours and make running around look easy! He is a true introvert-enjoys people but sometimes people can be overwhelming and will need a soft bed to relax in while company is over. When given time to warm up, he'll paw you for head scratches and nudge you for cuddles. He's curious in nature and is a great problem solver. Although he isn't allowed on the furniture, he loves to curl up next to you but also enjoys a playful wrestling match. Sunbathing is his jam but don't ask him to cool off in the pool or go out in the rain. He needs an owner who can help protect his boundaries when he is feeling insecure and unsure. The perfect owner will be willing to reinforce the 4+ years of professional training and be an adult and LIKELY an only dog/cat home.

Details
Not good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs special attention, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
We are unable to keep Yuki due to ongoing costs and general life changes. We have made this decision knowing that he deserves a better home than we can currently provide him. It was extremely hard to come to this decision. He is not up to date on his shots, and has a tooth that may need to be pulled. Right now the tooth is not bothering him. He is house trained and will let you know when he needs to go outside. He knows how to sit and lay down, however he will need to be crated when you are not home. He is very anxious and will sometimes be reactive while on a leash. He has done well with other dogs at daycare and loves to play. We are hoping to find a home for Yuki where he can have a yard, patient owner(s), and perhaps a dog that he can play with and learn from.
