Pet of the Week: Hank, a lovable foxhound with a nose for adventure

Meet Hank, a gangly foxhound whose smile will warm your heart as surely as a certain children’s movie without the accompanying tears.

The Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation say it’ll be love at first sight for anyone who takes a chance on Hank:

Hank loves you already, and you will love him back if you meet him just once.

This goofy 70-pound foxhound loves to greet everyone he meets. Hank is still a young man and can use your help to become the perfect family member. He is already super cuddly, loyal, and affectionate and has a lot more to offer.

Hank makes sure that every person passing by is greeted properly and showered in kisses. He loves being petted in return and has also shown love for other dogs he met. Typical of a hound, Hank has his nose pressed to the ground and loves to explore his surroundings. He does well traveling in the car and will ride right upfront with you if you like.

Hank needs your help figuring out treats because so far he is eager to take them, carry them in his mouth, but will eventually just drop them to the ground. He is a working dog who loves to walk and will make a great hiking companion.

Hank is a big bouncy guy looking for a family to help him become a well-rounded adult.

If Hank seems like the right walking buddy for you, you can email the shelter at [email protected]

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
