These are notes from Hermit's current shelter!

"Hermit was surrendered to the small, remote shelter in Presidio in early October as being "no longer wanted. He was underweight, had a cherry eye, needed a neuter, and hadn't been the vet since he was a puppy (he's 9 now!!). He was tied up in a back yard. Another male dog was permitted to run free in a small enclosure and they could interact. Hermit has now been to the vet and is all fixed up (neutered and cherry eye fixed, vaccines updated, testing for heartworm and tick diseases negative). He's gained weight (55 lbs now) and is doing well!

Hermit doesn't give a great first impression because new people outside his kennel make him react by barking and retreating. But if you give him a second chance to make a first impression, you'll find a mellow, sweet friendly guy. Like a lot of dogs who have spent years on a tether, Hermit is adjusting to his newfound freedom but it's taking him a little time. Hermit weighs about 55 lbs and seems pretty low energy. We don't have any cat intel and know that he did not grow up around kids; we expect that they would freak him out a bit. Hermit has done well with other dogs, particularly females. He does need a slow approach with new people and a bit of understanding for the limitation of his life so far, but besides that, this is a bud who really just needs a soft spot in a calm home, some good food, plenty of attention all the spoiling possible as a senior dog who hasn't yet known the Good Life."

Can you take him in?
