Meet handsome Hunter! Unfortunately, Hunter’s life started out pretty rough, but luckily was rescued from terrible conditions through the efforts of the ASPCA. This poor, scared pup came to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (BRC) to help build his confidence and to learn how to be a companion dog. Making his way through our program, Hunter has learned how to walk on leash, play with his dog friends and even likes to ride in the car. Now, Hunter’s ready for his next adventure—finding a loving home with another playful dog!
Big fan of: Playgroup! Hunter is great at modulating his play style when he plays with other dogs. Other dogs also help to build his confidence, so having a good doggy play partner will make a world of difference as he settles into your home. Hunter has come to enjoy scritches and walks with his familiar people.
Working on: pulling on leash from the sheer excitement of air sniffing opportunities and other chances to use his nose. He loves sniffing the environment around him. Using a harness can help make walking a lot easier!
Dream Home: A home with a confident dog who loves to play! He’d also love a fenced in yard, but it’s not a dealbreaker if you don’t have one. Getting outside on hikes or finding other ways to explore together will be a great bonding experience.
It may take some time for Hunter to open up in a new home, but he’s come such a long way and has now graduated our program at the BRC. He is worth the time and patience to grow a bond. Hunter was recently transferred to the Humane Society of Charlotte, but don’t worry! You can still submit an adoption application for Hunter by emailing [email protected]!
