Here's Hogan, a boy who recently skirted death. His foster dad writes --

"Hogan is a young pitbull mix who was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Ohio.  He is between 1 and 2 years old, neutered, and up-to-date on all vaccinations.  Tested heartworm negative. 

Hogan has some food aggression issues which we are working on."

Food aggression often happens with dogs found as strays -- these pups didn't know where their next meals were coming from, and when they got them, they protected them.


I have had many food aggressive dogs, and over time, after trust and continuity is established, have seen it unanimously subside.

Tim continues --

"Hogan is so sweet.  Loves all people, meets all people and dogs a with wagging tail and a friendly attitude. He loves being petted and playing.  Is getting better on a leash, but still pulls when excited.  We go for 3 walks a day, and he is coming along nicely. 

He likes to play with me, and will mouth lightly."


"He seems to control his pressure very well, and will settle quickly when told.  He can be touched all over - no sensitive areas. 

He knows sit, lay down, come, kennel,and stay (sometimes) and will do all of these quickly for treats.  He goes to the door to be let out for potty, and speaks at the door to come in when done. 

He goes pee immediately after being let out, no messing around.  He loves being indoors."


"He does well in the bath - jumps right in the tub, and stands there calmly while being washed.  He lets me clip his nails, but just wants to play, so its hard to hold him still.  Hogan seems overall well adjusted and happy. 

Very attentive, active, joyful, pup.  He seems intelligent, loving, and eager to please."


"So Hogan needs a home with a family who will be willing to work with him on his food issues.  This seems to be his only "issue", as he is otherwise a very happy, easygoing guy. 

Hogan's adoption fee is $250.00 to help cover his veterinary expenses."

-- as sweet and handsome as he is, Hogan is still in need of a home.
