Hi everyone, my name is Brian but my foster family actually calls me Hank instead! I came to Minnesota all the way from Texas and am so happy to be here! Since I haven't been here too long I'm still adjusting to the many changes, especially that cold stuff they call snow! I'm just a young guy but am stronger than most twice my age, I'm a parvo survivor! Now that I'm back to my healthy self, I can't wait to find a family that will love and protect me forever!
I'm a sweet and social boy that loves meeting new friends! I'm just a typical puppy who loves to play with toys, other doggy friends, and people too! I really enjoy my canine friends in my foster home, they sure teach me a lot! I'm an extremely smart boy and have already mastered this potty training thing, I will even ring a bell to let you know it's time to go! I'm also learning some fun tricks like "sit", "off" and "no", I mostly just like the treats that come after! I sleep in a kennel at night with my brother since he doesn't like to be alone, I help him feel brave and safe! I even have some young human siblings and think they are pretty great, they like to play as much as I do and keep me entertained! I would love a home with another doggy friend to play with and keep me company since I'm full of energy, or even a family with a very active lifestyle that would take me on lots of adventures!
I'm so excited about the new chance at life I've been given here in Minnesota! Could I be the missing link you've been searching for? I'd sure love to meet you!
