Meet Hondo, this 2 year old, 70 lb sweetheart is a very handsome and easy-going guy. His favorite things include napping, full body “massages” with belly rubs, and snuggling with his humans. He is a little shy in meeting new people but once he has warmed up, Hondo is very affectionate and would love to spend his days right by your side or sitting in your lap. He will even greet you with a shake and eventually a few kisses everyday! He is the perfect companion wanting to spend his time pleasing you and soaking up all your attention and love. He enjoys going on car ride adventures and has excellent leash manners on his walks/hikes. Hondo is also house-trained, smart and has learned many commands (sit, stay, down, come, leave it, shake, backup and more). He is a laid back dog that will very seldom play with toys and is not much of a chewer, but very motivated by treats and loves a frozen stuffed kong. Hondo can be a little fearful of new things and loud noises and is looking for a family who will be patient when his is scared, give him opportunities to experience new things, and teach him with love to be brave. We believe Hondo could live with another dog and may even benefit from having a canine sibling to help ease his fears. An adult-only home or a home with responsible teenagers is preferred. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, recovering from heartworm treatment, and eager to find a family to love.
Hondo is nearing the end of his heartworm treatment and will be available for adoption in approximately 4 weeks. For an appointment to meet this handsome boy, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website,, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.
