OAKHURST — At just under a year old, Lab mix Hank is a young dog who is somewhat of an old soul, say those who know him best.
“He loves long walks under the moonlight, and canned food in his kibble,” according to his Kellen Rescue foster person, speaking of a handsome, loving dog named Henry James, who is also known as Hank.
“He’s had all his shots, was recently neutered, is up to date on heartworm treatment and will be chipped this weekend.”
Hank weighs about 65 pounds now, and could gain another 10 pounds or so as he matures. Volunteers at Kellen say he’s possibly a mix of Catahoula and Lab.
“He walks well on leash and is house-trained. Hank shows no aggression or reaction shown towards other dogs or people.”
He was a good boy at the dog park, his current foster notes. Hank has been through a couple of homes already, through no fault of his own. He’s said to do well with cats, but has never had a stable household.
“Hank loves people and enjoys cuddling. He needs a little more car time, though for the most part he handles it well. He needs someone who can spend time with him, possibly a stay at home person. Hank definitely kennels well, though he is young and needs his confidence built up.”
