March, 2011: Hooch and his brother Turner almost landed in the clutches of the research dealer. Yikes! Their owner passed away and the family left them in one of Michigan's shelters that gives unclaimed pets to research. We could not allow either one of these sweet house pets to end up suffering in a research lab!

Turner was adopted months ago but Hoochie has been waiting for that special family who will open their heart and home to a senior :-) He's been in foster care a long time and it's his turn! Everyone seems to look past the older dogs and he is such a nice dog! Hooch is around 7 or 8 years old and medium sized at around 50 lbs. He is such a sweetheart!! He just wants to be near you and he is so appreciative of the slightest human gesture. Hooch is a gentle soul but he also still has pep in his step and he's a real cuddle bug!! He loves nothing more than to bury his head in your lap :) or lay next to you on the couch :-) He is currently being fostered with other dogs and he's doing OK but he really prefers his humans all to himself. We think he's just been lonely and neglected so he soaks up human attention. He deserves to be lavished with all the attention! He has been around many dogs during his time in foster care and he got along with most of them. But, there have been a few dogs Hooch didn't do so well with. So although he can get along with -most- other dogs, we prefer his furever home not have other dogs just to be safe. We don't want him bouncing back because of conflict with a resident dog. We want to be sure his next home is his FINAL home :-)

Hooch has just been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg), dewormed and he's waiting for his special person or family who is open to loving a senior. Are you that special person or family?
