BIO: Hank is a 3 year old 65lb male Rottie.  His previous owner has recently passed away leaving Hank with no options but to go to a shelter. 

Hank’s owner was a man and he seems to do well with men.  Most of the staff at the shelter are females and he has done well with all the staff at the shelter.  He was tested with a safer dog and did not do well during the test.  At this time a home with no kids or pets would help Hank adjust to a new life.

Hank came to UPAWS February 13, 2020 after his owner passed away. He was living alone with one gentleman, so he was not socialized properly. He seems to be showing frustration in the shelter because it appears that he is used to getting his way all the time. He is extremely smart about his choices to get his way, so we feel that if a dedicated trainer who has the time and understands the breed could work with him, he could be shown how to appropriately receive attention from people. A family member of the recently deceased owner came to the shelter recently with Pedigree paperwork. After tracing down the Pedigree, we believe it could possibly belong to the mother, but we are not sure. It does appear that he came from a line of Pedigree dogs, though.
