Available for Adoption

Hercules - Florida

Hercules is sociable with dogs and enjoys going to dog parks to swim, run and play. He has never lived with or been raised around very small children and cats or any other animals. He enjoys getting baths but does not like getting his nails clipped. He is very smart and intelligent and knows and understands basic commands (sit, stay, down, come here, go). He is ok and use to traveling in cars but can get a little nervous and have a little bit of anxiety. He is ok at the vet and groomers but does get a little nervous when going to the vet.

Hercules has some bad habits such as being sneaky and for some strange reason likes to eat paper towels and/or tissue. He does not have limits when it comes to getting in the bed, open garbage cans in the house and begging for table food. He is very alert and barks when someone is at the door and a great watch dog. He can be territorial over his toys/food. His favorite hobbies are: looking out the window, running, being outside and rolling around in the grass, chasing lizards and bugs. He doesn't’t like being confined in small spaces such as crates/carriers for long periods of times if so, he will bark excessively if he does not see anyone in site.

He likes to hide especially under the bed or in the closet and you may catch him sleeping there. He loves dog toys and balls especially the ones that make noise. He is house trained and does not chew on furniture or shoes. He is full of energy, a fast runner, and high jumper. He enjoys playing with other dogs and loves human play interaction. He is loyal to family and friends and loves getting attention. He will bark at strangers but has never bitten anyone. Give him boundaries, toys, room to run and play and lots of love and attention you have yourself a joyful and happy dog
