Hershey is a super sweet boy, who is full of love. He can be stubborn at times, but he’s a real charmer and he’ll win your heart over. An experienced boxer person would be ideal for Hershey. He knows many basic commands and learns quickly; he would thrive in a home that will continue his training. We are currently working on crate training.
Hershey loves to ride in cars, and looks around but doesn’t bark. He walks well on a leash, but is easily distracted so we’re working on that. Hershey sits for his food, and waits until you say OK. You can pet him while he’s eating, put your hand in his bowl, and raise it up, he doesn’t react. Hershey likes cooked carrots, broccoli, boiled chicken, bananas, and kibble for treats. He’s very food and attention motivated. Hershey is fully house broken.
Hershey loves to cuddle, give kisses and get massages; he doesn’t mind having his feet, ears, or mouth touched. Hershey hasn’t spent any time with cats, but he does chase squirrels so he would probably not do well in a home with a cat. Hershey needs slow introductions to other dogs. He is an active boy who needs 60+ minutes of moderate exercise daily (walks, runs, etc.).
Hershey will cherish you and loves to be with his family all the time, so he would be best suited to a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time. While Hershey does love to be with his people, he is easily excited, so he does better with calm, quiet talk. Because of his exuberance, Hershey would be best in a home with children 12 and older. If Hershey sounds like he might fit in your home, submit an application today – he would love to be your constant companion!
