I’ll be your Huckleberry!
I am a young, energetic, 4 year old puppy. I was left at a strange place and met some folks who took me to yet another strange place. Then other people came and took me to their new foster home. This place has different and interesting things. There is this thing called “felines”; I am not sure what a feline is but they are furry and curious. There is a big fenced yard to run around in and they have 2 older Brittanys. I get to investigate things and I am told “No” a lot. Hey, I am learning!

This family likes to go places and I get to go also! I like this ’cause I get to meet new people, new places and other dogs. I really like those rides!

I do get a bit anxious at times when left alone, even with the other Britts here (Can you blame me? I was abandoned!) I really enjoy the secure feeling of someone there. I am being tahght new things and ma willing to learn.

I’ll be your Huckleberry!
Message from the foster family: This lad was abandoned at a shelter in North Carolina. No history. No name. No medical records. Nothing. An ABR volunteer rescued him but could not keep him. We picked him up February 1st 2024 from his temp foster in Kentucky.

With no history, we took him to our vet. He passed all his healthy checks. Is now UTD on vaccinations and is heartworm negative and on preventatives. Only a few issues: underweight and digestive issues. He is believed to be 4 years young.

Having had him for awhile and with no name, fearing he would think his name was “No-No”, we thought his personality should fit his name so we chose Huckleberry. He is on the adventure of his life. With no history of training, his manners are rough. Vocabulary: limited. Commands like “No” when he wants to. Stay: nope. Sit: learning. Leash work in progress.

He is a very sweet boy, kind, inquisitive and eager to learn. He learning how to stop and relax. We do not believe he had much affection in his past life. Nor has he had much interaction with the world. The more he is exposed, the more he will accept the world.

We are teaching commands: sit, stay, lay, kennel, come, leave it. And leash work. Huck can be a little aggressive taking treats and we’re working on that so he’ll take them more gently. Feeding time is a family thing; we hold the bowl and Huck has to respect and wait. Then he can eat.

He is not prey driven but is very curious about cats, birds, leaves, squirrels, etc. We have 5 cats and he is only fixated on two of them – but not to kill. They touch him and he freezes. He doesn’t know what to do.

We have taken him to several ABR events to socialize with other people and different kinds of pets. He did very well meeting people.

We believe the forever family Huck is looking for is one where someone is home the majority of the time and can take him with them if they leave. He would do well with another playful dog and a fenced yard as he likes to run around. He likes his walks. We think it will take a special home for him.
