Though I like to think puppies and young dogs find forever homes quickly, the sad truth is that they don't always. This fellow at Wayside Waifs animal shelter caught my eye and I couldn't resist featuring him and giving him some social media promotion.
That face! Those ears! What a cutie patootie!
Meet Hansel. This adorable fellow is a hound / pit bull mix. At only 9 months he's got lots of fun, puppy energy and the perfect age for training.
Here's Hansel's adoption message:
Hi, my name is Hansel and I hope you have a trail of bread crumbs leading to your house. You see, I'm a nine-month-old boy who once was lost but now I'm found, well, at least temporarily. What I'm really searching for is my "Forever Home" and then I really will be found. I'm a sweet and cuddly, 46-pound, brown-and-tan Pit Bull Terrier mix with the sweetest face ever.
I'm still a puppy so I've got lots of energy and I love to PLAY. And like some little kids, I like to gobble my food so I could use some training to slow me down a bit at my food bowl and to curb my enthusiasm a bit when I see you want to be with me! Woo hoo-let's go! Training me should be easy because I am treat motivated but because I'm such an enthusiastic boy, I would be better with children five and older. I love being outside running and walking with you. A happy and carefree big puppy, I simply exude with enthusiasm for life.A happy-go-lucky young man, I'm such a handsome boy with a personality plus looking for a home. I just know you're looking for me-the one and only Hansel. I must meet all new family members, including canines, before going home. That will be fun, like most everything in my life! My bags are packed. When did you say you were going to pick me up? You won't be sorry. Love, Hansel
