Hudson was turned into animal control by his owner. He is settling into his foster home, and they will be able to tell us all about him soon.


PROFILE

Hudson is a very handsome, sweet boy who is still figuring out how awesome it is to be a loved family member! He is young and energetic, so he will need a forever home that is committed to regular exercise and has an active lifestyle that includes him. He walks very nicely on a leash, however, he gets excited for squirrels and has been startled by cyclists which has resulted in some pulling and he is strong. He LOVES tennis balls and will retrieve them, but also likes to just run around the backyard showing them off. Because of the alpha dog personality of both Hudson and our resident male dog, we do not allow the balls in the house and he does give them up pretty easily when it’s time to come in. In the house, Hudson finds entertainment with bones and Kongs, he spends some of his time hanging out wherever we are and some time “protecting” the master closet, which has become his favorite sleeping spot. He crates fairly easily and we would NOT recommend leaving him unsupervised home alone uncrated since he’s still trying to figure out what are appropriate items for chewing and unfortunately will get himself into trouble if left out.

We will be only considering a forever home that does not have young children living there or visiting frequently. Hudson can be overly excited with treats and toys and we are working on taking things calmly and more gently. He also seems to not be certain who he can trust and knowing how unpredictable children are we don’t feel that’s the right situation for Hudson. He seems to be a very loyal companion and is becoming more affectionate and approaching us for hugs and kisses more and more. He gets along with our two dogs but is not dependent on them for companionship, he will probably do well as an only dog, however he does pick up cues from them on how to interact when people come over to the house. If he’s to have another canine companion it should be a more submissive one. We do not know how he is with cats or other small animals yet, but given his prey drive with squirrels, birds and lizards he probably would be better in a home with no small pets. We will update that requirement as we find more out with him. Hudson is really just looking for a best friend and family that has a decent amount of dog experience and has so much love and patience to show him.


UPDATE

5/10/19 Hudson is getting some training to help him gain confidence. Check back for updates.
