Hello! My name is Hawking and I’m looking for some humans to let me be their shadow, snuggle, and help me build my confidence. I may not be a young puppy anymore, but I’m still learning a lot! I have heard about these things called “cats.” I haven’t met any of them. Do you think I’d like them? Or would they like me? I don’t know, yet. I’m also learning how to play with toys and I just found out that some of them are HARD and CHEWY which is AMAZING! I love to wrestle and play with my foster sibling. It would be helpful if there was another dog to wrestle with me and help teach me how to dog, because I just LOVE to learn!

My foster humans have taught me lots of things, and I love how proud of me they get when I do things like “Sit,” “Stay,” “Come,” “Kennel/Crate,” and “Potty Outside.” I haven’t had any problems with knowing where to go potty and I’ve always been great at going outside. However, the humans wanted me to remind you that, sometimes, as I adjust to a new home and routine, accidents can happen. My fosters also seem pretty happy that I haven’t felt the need to bark too much. But if I get a little alarmed, I will let you know with my voice.

Also, as much as I love to snuggle, I’m still building my confidence, so I think I’d do best in a home with older kids who can be gentle, calm, patient, and respectful with me. I love being with my humans. I don’t mind sleeping in my kennel at night so long as my human is nearby to make me feel safe. So, if you can provide me with lots of time, patience, and snuggles, I’d love to make my safe place with you!

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
