Hansel | Pet of the Week

By on January 5, 2018 at 4:19 pm


Hansel is handsome and a real sweetheart, but he is shy and lacks the confidence with the world around him. He would do best in a home with a good doggie role model and a patient person who is willing to work to gain his friendship and trust.

Hansel is looking for a patient and confident family who will help him overcome his fear of the big world and he promises you companionship and love.

Hansel is one year old lab/shepherd mix.

Hansel is currently living in a foster home; call the shelter to make an appointment to meet him.
