Meet Hoss!

This old guy came into our care after his owner was not able to take care of him anymore and is now looking for his forever home! Hoss loves attention and will let you know when you are not giving him enough. He will bark until you give him some scratches and treats, although he is quite overweight and is on a diet. His new family will need to give him lots of love and attention, as he tends to become frustrated and has been known to run away from home. Once he is content, he will lay in his bed. He does not know many tricks, but is a smart guy and is learning how to sit and lay down. Hoss is a slow walker and may be old, but is quite strong and will need a human that will be able to handle his strength.

Hoss is a sweet man looking for a loving home that can give him lots of belly rubs. His barks can be quite loud, so he would do best in a home. Hoss is very particular with who he likes and may be good with calm female dogs. Although, he prefers to be the only canine in the house. We are not sure how he is with cats. Until he can get down to a healthy weight, Hoss will need to be on a special diet.

Do you think you could be Hoss’s person? Here are some ways to find out:

1.) Visit our centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or

2.) Submit an online application and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
