Hank Huie

ON TEMPORARY MEDICAL HOLD!

OK, let me just start with it… I’m an addict. That’s right. I’m addicted to chasing cows and horses and I just can’t give it up.

My folks were afraid someone was going to get seriously hurt ~ either I was going to get kicked in my head or an animal was going to run through a fence. They decided to give me to some friends who had Bulldogs previously, but the friends already had so many dogs, there was no room for me. Thankfully, they contacted rescue and here I am!

I’m a 59 pound lean machine! I am 5 years old and in pretty good health. If you look real close, you will see that I have some spots on my legs from spending too much time in my crate and my teeth are worn a little too much, maybe from chewing on the crate. My back legs move a little funny because I don’t have the muscle tone I should have. This is because my family was trying to keep me from being kicked in the head by the horse!

I am looking for a city family with no large animals to chase. I just can’t stop myself! But I would still love to go on long walks. I love all people and other dogs. I would be a perfect Bulldog for any family—except one that lives near cows and horses!

I hope to see you real soon. We may be a perfect match!

1/15/20 Update:  We are sad to announce that Hank is heartworm positive and will have to undergo treatment.

1/17/20 Update:  Bulldogs are not in the Herding dog category … but no one told Hank Huie! That’s how he came to rescue. He loved chasing the cows on his family’s farm. They were afraid that the livestock was going to get together and turn on him one day and then there would be NO MORE HANK HUIE! Well, we’re very glad to have him. Hank is truly a JOY!

Hank is 5 years old and a fun, happy boy. Upon examination, Dr. Larsen learned that he was bit by a mosquito somewhere along the line and he’s now heartworm positive. He will begin his treatment this week to kick those worms to the curb.

Hank was our first photo shoot of the day. And let me tell you: Hank is the way to start your morning. No cup of coffee needed. Just Hank Huie!
He trotted in, found me on the floor, walked right up and licked me in the face. Not a tender, sweet kiss… he LICKED the whole side of my face! He then decided to lay down and roll all around me, kicking his legs in the air. He then jumped up, ran over to a chair and climbed up to look out the window. I think he was looking for COWS!

Finally, we got him off the chair and that’s when the fun really started. He is Mr. Personality! He was wonderful and loved all the attention. Every now and then, he would stop and have himself a good roll. You’ll see it in one of the pictures. He would jump down and come see me, then jump back up and pose. I was wide awake after Hank left the set.

Hank is just a delight and one of the most entertaining Bulldogs I’ve ever met. He LOVES people and is good with other dogs. I guess when you’ve lived with cows, dogs seem pretty easy.

So, no more cattle herding for Hank Huie! Cattle or horse ranchers need not apply. I can’t promise you won’t get a little cold nosing from time-to-time around the house. He just might be herding you to the kitchen to find him a treat!
