We call him Hank the Gentle Giant.
He's 2 years old and 70+ pounds of happy all the time.
He's a mix between airedale terrier and German shepherd.
He came to us from a family who didn't want him. Whatever their excuse was for not wanting him is irrelevant. We are just so happy he's ours now.
He walks on a leash like a total dream!
He's getting less shy around men, but he still hates the way the school gate slams when we walk to school pick up.
He is always so excited when we come home - even if we've only been gone for five minutes. He jumps straight up and down because he just. Can't. Contain it. But he never jumps on you. Which is appreciated.
He came to us with fleas and a horrible hot spot on his skin. We've since taken care of that.
He will be getting neutered as soon as his skin clears up completely (sorry, boy! 😝).
Our vet says he really "traded up" when he came to our house, but truly we feel like the blessed ones. We couldn't have asked for a better dog to add to our crazy clan.
