Hogan was recently picked up by Off the Streets Animal Sanctuary after he was found wandering the streets of Bainbridge, a small town in Ross County, Ohio. He loved to play with the school children who were feeding him, but he needed to get off the streets before he got hurt, or picked up by animal control and possibly taken to a kill shelter.
Of unknown parentage, Hogan’s markings resemble a German Shepherd Dog, but his floppy ears and feathery coat and tail say that he likely has some setter or spaniel in him. He also has the very soft mouth of a bird dog, as well as a lighter frame. He appears to be less than a year old, but does have his adult teeth – and pretty ones at that! Hogan has had his first shots and has been wormed and doesn’t appear to have any health issues. He hasn’t been neutered yet, but that will be a requirement of his adoptive family if it isn’t done prior to placing him.
Hogan loves children and other dogs, and is house trained. He is currently being fostered in a home with three other dogs and gets along well with all of them. He shows no signs of aggression at all, and all four dogs eat out of the same dishes at the same time without incident. He loves to run and play in the back yard, and is fast enough that none of the other three can catch him. He also enjoys riding in the car and is a good passenger.
A thoroughly enjoyable house guest, Hogan will make a loving addition to the family who opens their heart and home to him. If you think you might be that family, contact this writer at the email address listed below, or contact Off the Streets Sanctuary at the link above, or their Facebook page.
