This beautiful boy is Hanson. He's a 4 year old Mississippi born Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. Hanson really is a striking dog with one blue eye, one brown eye and a beautiful black, gray and white fur coat.
Here's Hanson's adoption message:
Hi there, my name is Hanson....that's spelled H-A-N-D-S-O-M-E. Just a little joke, but I am a very good looking guy. I'm a 4 year old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix, and my coat is just the right combination of black, gray and white. You probably can't see it in my photo, but my eyes are unique. One is brown and one is a striking blue, which is handy when I want to flirt!
I was transferred to Wayside from the Humane Society of South Mississippi. I'm a little underweight right now and that's probably because of being nervous and not having a loving family to make sure I stayed healthy. The good people here are feeding me all kinds of yummy things now, and making sure I'm as healthy as can be. I'm sure I'll get back in shape quickly. I feel so much better now that I'm here, and sure hope I'll find my forever home soon.
I hope I can convince you to come and meet me, because I know you'd be impressed with how loveable and smart I am. I will sit on command, and I take treats very nicely. I am well-mannered (except around squirrels...they drive me crazy) and just SO interested in all there is to see on my walks. I mean, I want to explore and sniff just about everything! I need to make up for all those days when I didn't have a loving human to show me around. I'll do best if walked with a harness since all my enthusiasm makes me pull on the leash a bit.
In my new home (which I hope is yours!) I would love to learn more basic commands and doggie obedience skills. I'm motivated by praise and food, so I should learn quickly. I would love to play games with you that would stimulate me mentally and entertain both of us!
Bragging is really not my thing, but some people here say I'm "beautiful" and my eyes are "enchanting!" I think you should come out and see for yourself...that would really make me happy. When you come to meet me, please bring all the members of your family and any furry members too...just to make sure we all get along. I can't wait to meet you and I know you won't be disappointed. Just ask for me, Handsome Hanson! And please come soon!
Kisses and wags, Hanson
