Hank is a 2-year-old Yorkshire/terrier mix (mini Chewbacca) who will immediately steal your heart. He has a gentle soul and just wants to curl up beside you and get belly rubs. It takes him a couple of minutes to warm up, but after that, this eleven-pound boy is all love!
Hank has made astounding progress in his foster home! With a consistent routine, he is house-trained and growing more confident by the day. He is still learning how to do dog stuff like walking on a lead and being handled for grooming so he will need extra love and patience as he continues to come out of his shell. He has been bullied in his past so he is working through feeling safe while eating and has shown some resource guarding around food and cozy laps. He is happy meeting other dogs and shows interest with lots of sniffing and tail wags. He is still learning how to interact and will need additional socialization.
Hank would be ideal for someone who is home often and looking for a cuddly shadow dog. He could easily live his best life as an only dog (with lots of lap time from his human). He could also be in a home with another small, gentle, and balanced dog. Older, dog-savvy children (14+) may be fine for this sweet boy.
