Meet Hercules, the dynamic and exuberant canine ready to win your heart! Hercules is bursting with energy and a zest for life. With a playful spirit and an infectious enthusiasm, this lovable pooch is sure to bring joy and laughter to any home.
Hercules has an irresistible charm that is as unique as his personality. With a striking coat and a wagging tail, he turns heads wherever he goes. His boundless energy makes him the perfect companion for outdoor adventures, long walks, or games of fetch in the park. Therefore, he is looking for an active family to call his own! He loves toys, face kisses, jumping, and playing in water.
A cute and lovable guy, he was originally found as a stray, and needs some dog savvy humans to help him catch up on the basics of being a house dog! Hercules is working on his house training, foundation behaviours (sit/recall/leash walking/etc), as well as boundaries (jumping up, very exuberant kisses). He is very eager to please though and is very food motivated, making training a bit easier. He is currently making progress with this in shelter, and his learning will be expedited in a home environment with a consistent routine.
Hercules’ ideal home would be an adult only household, and isn’t left alone for long periods at a time. He has a lot of energy to burn, so his future guardians should be active people who want an exercise partner that will keep them in shape!
Hercules is eagerly awaiting his forever home, where he can share his boundless love and bring joy to his new family. If you’re seeking a furry bundle of happiness and endless fun, look no further than Hercules. Adopting him would be the start of an incredible adventure filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to welcome this excitable and charming companion into your life!
