A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: There’s an old soul inside this stately, magnificent physique. A heart that beats warmly asking for love, for security, a soft bed and good food. An old soul who nudges my hand telling me he’s enjoying my petting and please don’t stop. An old soul who happily arises from his bed at the prospect of a walk and a chance to go potty. Likely named after the gentle giant from Game of Thrones, Hodor is our gentle giant. Easy on the leash (pulling slightly from time to time but very manageable), Hodor is getting the lay of the land with us and making friends quickly, even enjoying some bouncy play with a female in his first play group. Off leash he comes when I call him, laying his gorgeous head in my lap, sometimes burying his nose under my coat. His bright amber eyes are gorgeous and piercing, looking deeply into mine. An old soul, a stately and so very sweet gentle dog, longing to meet his new person and settle into a lifetime of love. Make our gentle giant your gentle giant and do it today.
