Hawk A1083359 is an 11yr old neutered male light brown & white Boxer/Beagle mix who was adopted from another shelter 11yrs ago and is being surrendered due to landlord issues. He was last seen by a veterinarian for vaccines in 2014 and currently has a mass on his chest (noticed during intake) and his legs appear weak at times.
Around strangers Hawk is friendly/outgoing. He’s watched children grow up and was gentle, exuberant, relaxed & playful with them also the adult in the home. Hawk hasn’t been around other animals nor has he ever bitten/scratched any person or animal.
Hawk isn’t bothered by the following: having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being brushed, being bathed or being disturbed while sleeping/resting. He hasn’t had his nails trimmed. If someone approaches the home/family member Hawk will bark at them for a few minutes.
For A New Family to Know:
Hawk is described as friendly, affectionate & independent with a low-medium activity level. Hawk enjoys resting. He’s mostly an indoor only dog who sleeps on a dog bed & is walked 2-3x a day. Hawk eats dry Pedigree 2-3x a day. He will have accidents in the home if someone takes too long to take him out. When left home alone Hawk is well behaved and his known command is “sit”.
Hawk allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of including positioning him during his photo session which was a little difficult as she was very interested in the cats that were in kennels nearby. Hawk was then walked to his kennel where we assisted with placing him into it as he didn’t want to go in. Hawk’s “spot” was found as I was petting him. It’s on his left hip
