Introducing Herbert Hoover!

Oh my goodness, Herbie is SUCH a good dog. Like so many of the dogs from Animal Farm, he has not had an easy past. Herbie is recovering from an injury that made it necessary for him to have metal rods placed in his pelvis and back leg. Though still working on his leash manners he is becoming a pro at basic obedience. He plays nicely with his dog friends and enjoys meeting new people.

Herbie loves and needs to work, and thus, is looking for an experienced handler who will continue to do what he loves with him.

The following photographs were taken on a day we were playing with Studio photography, and Herbie was an amazingly patient super model. As you can see, he took this job very seriously, moving his head ever-so-slightly each time he heard my camera shutter, as if to say, "how's this?" -- "or this?" -- "or how about THIS?"

As always, please click on each image to see it enlarged (and look into his soulful eyes!).

If you'd like to learn more about Herbie, please get in touch with the good people over at Animal Farm!

Herbie is a joy to work with. Anyone interested in obedience training would be lucky to have him.

I work closely with Herbie every day, and wanted to mention how helpful Herbie has been while shoveling snow!! He runs around in his yard no matter how deep it is, and comes to a screeching halt in front of me covered in snow and looks up at me as if to say, "Isn't this GREAT??!!"
Even though our job is to get these guys new homes, I will miss him when he finds his home. He makes me laugh often throughout the day, no matter what the weather!!

Herbie can always make me laugh no matter how difficult my day might be and he always brings a smile to my face.

Herbie is one handsome boy.
