Hank is a four year old American Cattle Dog (Heeler). He is a sweet little guy who is great with other dogs and loves kids. He is not phased at all by the noise of a loud and busy three year old in the foster home. He LOVES playing ball with a deflated volleyball and jumps in the air to catch it, and he only wants to play one on one, sharing the ball he thinks is too hard for him. He loves being with people and will stick like glue in the house, relaxing calmly at your feet for hours. He enjoys going on walks outside with his fosters' six pack of dogs. Hank is a very quick learner and knows how to "sit", "shake", and "down". He is very treat motivated and will follow his foster around hoping to earn a treat for doing a trick. He sleeps each night in his crate that is next to his fosters bed, and goes in very willingly ready for a good nights sleep (though he would love to sleep on the bed as well). Hank does not enjoy being in an outside kennel, and will bark to show how he feels. He would prefer to be by his person all of the time, but does end up settling down in the kennel and waits to be let out again. Hank loves car rides and hops right in ready to go. He has a very loving personality and loves attention. True to his herding breed, he loves to watch livestock in the fields through the fence. Hank does, unfortunately, have a great interest in chasing cats, so a home without would be best unless he can be supervised around them. A good adoptive candidate for Hank would be one that will let Hank be their buddy, to ensure he is a family member each and every day of his life. He does love to go on walks, and chasing his deflated volleyball is his favorite, so a family that can meet his activity preferences would be best. An occasional car ride would also be great for him. He needs a home that will continue working on obedience skills (which is recommended for any dog). Hank is a wonderful boy looking for a home that will meet his needs.
