*HANK IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT AUBREY breychristofferson@gmail.com  *

Howdy! My name is Hank Williams. I’m a 9 year old livestock/guardian breed, and just like the old Country musician himself, I’m a sensitive soul, a love crooner, sometimes lonesome, and nervous about cheating hearts. People always stop me when I’m walking and tell me what a Handsome boy I am; maybe it’s the permanent eyeliner I wear, who knows. Point being, I should’ve been a dog model… for like American Cowboy or something.

My ideal days starts with a morning butt-scratch, a nice walk around the neighborhood, maybe a trip in the car to run some errands (window rolled-down of course), and plenty of time to just lay down at your feet or by your side relaxing like best buds do. I’m super smart; my family likes to claim I’m so smart, I know how to play dumb. Hahahaha….oh wait, they’re on to me. I love to lay down… have you seen all those pictures of me laying down? It’s one of my favorite pastimes. I also LOVE people (like A LOT, like “jump up on you, lick you and croon” kind of love), problem is, no matter how many times I get told the crazy 5-year old I live with is a person, I just don’t believe them; children make me nervous and sometimes I get so nervous, I react in fear. So, I need a home and a life without children.

In fact, I need a quiet, stable home in general. Other dogs sometimes make me confused and protective. My family and I have worked on this on walks and on-leash and I’m VERY proud of how far I’ve come not being reactive, but I’m still not ready to have to share my home with them. I’m also convinced cats are just really big toys that like to taunt me and, I admit, if I’m off leash, I will chase them; I think it’s just a bundle of fun, but no nobody else seems to. Just between us, I don’t like transitioning to new spaces and it takes me some time to warm up to new places.

With that in mind, some things about you that would be best for me: you don’t work long hours (maybe you work from home or are retired) and you don’t live in an apartment or in the bustle of the city (don’t forget, I’m a country boy at heart!). Please don’t make me an outside dog, give me a solid fence to keep me in, and don’t leave me without you too soon. I promise I’ll reward you for you dedication. ‘Cause no one will love you as unconditionally as I do. Look into my soulful, sensitive eyes and you’ll see what I mean.

(Adoption Fee of $250 required – I come fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped)
