Adopt-a-HuffPet: Sweet Wilbur Needs a Home


Sweet Wilbur: Found in an abandoned crate in the bush, Wilbur has survived the closing of an animal shelter and 11 months of shelter/kennel life with a calm and undemanding disposition. Wilbur is a hound breed, neutered male, 20" at shoulder and sturdy in build, between five and nine years of age.

Wilbur seems to have led his previous life as a family pet rather than a hunter. He loves his daily walks and can loose-leash walk with excellent manners. Wilbur is friendly with children of all ages and most other dogs from puppies with needle teeth to a Great Dane, and seems ambivalent toward cats. He loves a good belly or back scratch, his obedience practice, and enjoys the challenge of obstacle/agility courses.

While not a dog that is interested in fetch play -- he is a great buddy for all weather hikes. Looking for a forever home -- with other dogs is a plus, urban or rural doesn't matter.
