Who needs 3 legs, really when one is a trooper like Captain Hook… He does not look too happy in his kennel but once out and in company, he is a star! Captain Hook knows how to enjoy what ever is presented to him, treats, a toy, a person petting him or a dog on the other side of his pen. He absolutely loves balls and will jump high in the air to catch them. There is glitter of excitement in his eyes and his tufted owl’s ears dance on his head…He is quite strong and enthusiastic and a fun dog to spend time with. Captain Hook made me laugh and amazed me with his determination to make the best of a situation he did not expect…being with us and not his family . Lets hope for wonderful days ahead of him…
