Meet Haynes in Mississippi
Hi this is Haynes but my foster Mom calls me Tucker. You can call me whatever you want if you are sweet to me!
I’m a super sweet, 1 year old-ish, typical velcro GSP who follows my foster Mom around from room to room. I am currently being fostered in North Mississippi. Apparently my owner took my siblings and myself to a shelter in NC because we couldn’t hunt but I sure do like to sniff out things in the yard and point at them! I am house and crate trained, although I don’t love being in my crate, especially when I know my family is at home!
I’m small for a male-around 50 lbs, and pretty calm for a puppy. Don’t get me wrong-I love to run and play with my male and female canine siblings and get along with them just fine so a home with another dog would be great so I have someone to play with! I’m fine with following the leader and don’t need to be the alpha in the pack.
I’m learning to love playing fetch with a tennis ball but I will settle down nicely at my foster Mom’s feet when I’m inside. She has pretty feet 😊. I sleep all night in my dog bed beside my people and do fine. I am very interested in my feline sibling and still try to chase and even bite at him so a home without cats might be the way to go for me! I’m not sure about dogs much smaller than me since I haven’t met any.
I walk pretty well on a leash and know basic commands like sit and come; I am still working on stay-that one isn’t easy! I do stay in my crate during the day while my foster Mom is at work 2-3 days a week but she comes home and lets me out at lunch. I get along with my 10 year old human sibling and haven’t been around little ones but I think I’d do just fine with them too. I share my toys and even my food (when my older canine sister tries to eat mine!) and have never shown any aggression. I love to be petted and given belly rubs-those are the best! I will lay my head on your lap and wait for you to give me the attention I crave.
I need a home with a fenced yard so I can run off my energy and don’t run off after a furry creature. But so far I like to stick pretty close to home and my people.
If you’re interested in meeting me, please complete and adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster mom Stephanie.
P.S. Haynes (aka Tucker) is fully vetted, neutered and temperament tested. His adoption fee is $375.
