12/11/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: He may not be a dazzling tropical flower but Hibiscus sure knows how to live free and look gorgeous doing it and he’ll brighten your day faster than any fancy bouquet ever could. 80-plus pounds of happy tail wags and lushly pettable fur, Mr H is a gentle giant who loves to play and socialize with friends of all species. He’s down for full body massages and treats of any kind and while always grateful for a little pampering, he is an adventurer at heart and prefers walking in the crisp winter air to laying around on a couch. A strong boy who pulls hard and doesn’t understand that not every dog wants to be his friend, he’ll definitely need some training in the leash walking department but already knows how to take care of business the minute we step outside and with his passion for treats I’ve no doubt he’d be an attentive scholar if given the chance. Hibiscus aced his behavior assessment and he’s ready to be the ideal go anywhere, do anything pet your active family always dreamed of. Start the new year off right by bringing home a whole bunch of happy, handsome Hibiscus today!
