Meet Hanker

This dog is currently out of state but will be transported to New England shortly with no additional travel costs. The long distance adoption process includes talking to the foster they are living with in the south. Roughly 90% of our dogs are successfully long distance adopted and 10% adopted locally.

**Please read Hanker's entire profile, which includes a link to the adoption application at the end. Thank you!**

Meet Hanker - a 3 year old 81 pound, Cattle Dog/Catahoula mix boy. Hanker was found as a stray in Mississippi. How has this handsome boy been looking for his forever family for FIVE MONTHS already? Let's get this boy home so he can receive all the love he deserves!

His foster shares "Oh huggable, lovable, unbelievably handsome Hanker!!! Hanker is the sweetest and most gentle guy! He is very playful and enjoys company during play time! All toys are his favorite and he doesn't mind sharing! He has done well with all the dogs here in rescue. He absolutely adores kids but he does get excited around them so dog savvy or older kids would be best. He is doing well with his crate and leash skills and seems to be housebroken (though he might need a small adjustment period like any new dog would). He would benefit from further training and is definitely an outdoorsy dog! Remember when you adopt Hanker, you adopt all the slobbery kisses you can handle!"

Hanker did come into rescue testing heart worm positive. He has now completed his full treatment so there is no other care needed other than monthly preventions just as you would with any dog.

All dogs are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered at the time of adoption. All dogs require professional training to become the best family member they can be.

PLEASE READ: If a dog is listed, then s/he is currently available for adoption. Their information is correct to the best of our abilities and the information we have been given as of the day of posting. Please note, GDRNE does not guarantee the breed of any dog or puppy unless stated that we have run DNA. All breeds listed are educated estimates. Note that if the dog is listed as an "Out of town pet" there are NOT additional transport fees - it is included in our adoption fee Our dogs are rescued from various situations. It is most likely that both their parents were strays and even if not, mixes of some sort and that their grandparents were mixes as well. The dog may have some genetic material of an American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull). The dogs are usually mixes of many breeds, making them a breed all their own - a True and adorable American MUTT. If you are interested in this dog, you must submit an application. Great Dog is not a shelter so there is no building you can visit. Our dogs live in private foster homes until adopted. To learn more about our *shelterless* rescue, adoption fees, and procedures, review the list of Frequently Asked Questions on our website at WWW.GDRNE.COM.
