Meet Hondo

Hondo! This boy had a rough life up until some kind neighbors took him in. They got him healthy and got him to us here at ABR. Since getting to his foster home, Hondo has really opened up and is just one big, happy boy. The key with Hondo is patience. Because of his not-so-great life prior, you need to earn his trust. The fastest way to do that…walks, walks, and more WALKS!! Even just sitting outside under a tree will win Hondo over. His foster mom really took her time with him, letting him go to her, and just being in his presence without interaction. Oh, and did we mention walks? Hondo also loves to be groomed! He will happily let you clean his ears, clean his wrinkles, bath him, and brush him (he even let his foster mom vacuum him!!). Hondo does take to women faster, and he enjoys kids as well. We would recommend kids 10 or up, Hondo gets really excited and has no idea of his size.
