- Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed
Hickory is a beautiful black and white pittie boy. He is likely the sweetest dog in the world! When Hickory came in as a stray, he was sad, timid and kept his head down. He showed signs of having been neglected. He never barked or growled but just sat there at the gate as if to wait for the next misery. We learned quickly that if you spoke softly to him, he didn't move but if you could see the very tip of his tail wagging. He had hope. One of the volunteers took him out on a leash. It was as if a new dog had appeared. His head was erect, he had a smile on his face and his tail never stopped it's gentle wagging. Since being at the pound, he has had some nice baths and a good diet of healthy food. He walks daily and is quickly developing a fan club. He seems grateful for every kindness and loves to just sit on the floor next to you and cover you with lots of doggie kisses. He gets along with the other dogs and with all the staff and volunteers. He doesn't pull on walks, and takes treats gently. He waits patiently for you to put on his collar and leash, and also sits quietly waiting for his kong at the end of the day. If you are looking to really make a difference in a homeless dog's life, you will not be disappointed with our boy, Hickory. This fella is unusually calm and sweet and will be the one who makes you feel like a million at the end of a long day.
