Hank - in Maine!
Latest update: February 2018
Hank is back with us and we couldn't love this boy more! He is a big sweetie who is sensitive, beautiful and so much fun!
He is the dad to the “Avenger puppies” who came to us last year. They all got adopted (Scarlett, Spidey, Stark and the others!) He is just as sweet as all his babies and he is such a good dad and paternal with other dogs, especially puppies.
Hank appears to be a redbone coonhound and he is a hound through and through, with some typical stubbornness such as when he thinks he has treed something in the backyard. He is a big lug at 85 lbs. He gets along with dogs of all shapes and sizes as long as food is not involved. Like many rescue dogs, he has probably had to fight for food at some point and so he is a little too protective over it. He also bonds strongly when he does bond and might try to protect his person, so we have placed Hank with a trainer to get some evaluation information and some tips on how his new family needs to work with him. He loves his friends at Kompletely K9 but he would love to have his own couch and a front porch to call his own. He is a medium energy dog - content with a couple walks and some playing before he snuggles in, thinking he is a giant lap dog.
We wouldn't place Hank with small children because of his food protectiveness and
NO cats for this boy!
If you have interest in Hank or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
