Hank Clayton

Hank was surrendered to the rescue as a last chance before euthanasia due to human reactivity. When Hank was a puppy, he was bit by a copperhead snake on his right upper lip that caused nerve damage to both his front legs. This weakness will cause him to often knuckle and he will put his weight on his wrists. Hank is slower of his foster friends, but when he gets going, he loves to run and play. His foster parents have also found that Hank does get uncomfortable with strangers and even with his foster parents, the discomfort Hank feels in his back, he might turn to try to snip at you. His foster parents believe because of his uncomfortably and disability, Hank’s way of coping is trying to shoo people away by being scary. Hank and his foster parents have been working very hard to show him the world can be loving and that he can trust people. Once opened up, Hank is very vocal and goofy and will often bounce around for pets. Hank enjoys sucking on stuffed toys and will often wait by the door for you to come home. Hank has been doing well with his other foster friends. Once Hank trusts you, his heart is 100% for you. Hank needs a parent who will be stern and will be a strong leader for him to trust to care for him. Hank will likely never be a dog park dog or one that you’ll be able to take to the local farmers market but if you are a homebody, Hank will lay and sleep with you forever if you let him. Hank will not do well with children in the home and it is best if he is able to live comfortably in a more quiet household.
