Meet Lanky

Oh hey, new friend! My name is Lanky, and I am an 9-10 year-old hound mix. I am 70
pounds of goofy, loveable charm. I had a rough start during the fall while I was treated
for heartworm, but I'm feeling SO much better. I love that I can run and play with other
dogs at the dog park now!

My favorite place is to be right by your side and involved with whatever you're doing! I
would do really well in a home where I'm not left alone in my crate for too long during
the day. I am crate trained, but it's not my favorite place when I am all by myself.

The best time of the day is mealtime and I love to get a few yummy treats throughout
the day. I am obsessed with food and I get so excited that I jump around when it's time
to eat! I also love to go on walks with my foster mom. My foster mom is working on
giving me a little bit of extra training with the leash, so I don't pull too much when I see
something exciting.

I'd love a home with a yard to run and chase if I have a little extra energy, but I would
also be happy in an apartment with daily walks and lots and lots of toys to chew on. I
would be best as an only dog or in a home with another big dog - I can play too rough
sometimes for small dogs! I am great with children but would do best in a home with all
adults so that rules can be set and followed for me. I haven't been around cats too
much but would probably want to play with them too much.

I've heard people say that I have something called "sundowners' syndrome." They say it is essentially doggy dementia. Because of this I get nervous when the sun goes down, and I must go into the crate at nighttime because I get spooked sometimes. I should not share bed space with others because of this. This is a non-negotiable rule for my forever home, and luckily, I do great in the crate overnight!

If you are in need of a gentle giant with a goofy side, look no further! I am your guy, and
I just can't wait to meet you!!
