Hopi is off to such a new way of life! He's so excited to learn what it's like to live with kind humans and friendly pups and so happy to find out he can get their love and attention. And petting.

This middle-aged boy came to the shelter after being found on the side of a road, very starved and emaciated. Today, he's in what may be his first home. Shy and timid at first, he's now nudging his new human companions for their pets, cuddles and belly rubs. In return, he's giving his love to them, including teenagers and 3- and 4-year-old kids. He seeks them out and gives them licks.

He's content to chill out in the house, just excited to get treats. He's also excited to go for walks, and he's making good progress on his leash training. Plus, his house training is going well, and he's sleeping nicely in his crate.

Hopi is a tail-wagger who's also happy to socialize with his housemate pups and has paid no attention to his kitty companions. Now that he is discovering this wonderful new way of living, he hopes for a new forever home where he can love on his people. He promises he'll be their loyal, fun companion!
