Meet Hondo, a very handsome 1.5 year-old boy who looks like a mix of Anatolian Shepherd and Great Pyrenees. He found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter. Although we have no history on him, we have found Hondo to be a super-sweet guy although a little on the shy side since he arrived here with us. He is definitely a gentle soul who enjoys attention from his human friends. We’ve been brushing his thick coat daily since he arrived and he loves flopping over for a belly rub while we’re doing that. Hondo has done well meeting other dogs and is beginning to understand how much fun it is to go for a walk on a leash. The leash was a new experience for him and every once in awhile he’ll sit down and refuse to walk (typical of a Great Pyr!) but that is happening less frequently now that he’s comfortable with us. Hondo has had excellent crate manners in his foster home so we expect he should be able to master the house rules quickly in his new home. This sweet dog is a real snuggler and is going to make a fabulous companion for one lucky person or family. Hondo weighs about 55 pounds and his adoption fee is $325. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Hondo. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age. We correspond via email so please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
