Are you looking for a silly man to watch those squirrels like a hawk? Then come meet Hawk! Hawk is a chill boy inside, but loves his outdoor play time and walks. Hawk is someone who bonds very closely with his person and he enjoys affection, but is not too invasive and likes his own space. He is also very smart, and likes to be outside exploring all the things nature has to offer.

Hawk is such a polite boy when it comes to going potty. He always waits to go outside and has not had any accidents in the house. Hawk is initially a shy guy, and will take time to get comfortable with you. It's worth the wait though because once he trusts you, he'll enjoy some good belly rubs and pats. He prefers pups who are not too rowdy and can chill with him, and would need a well-matched dog buddy.

Hawk is super easy to walk on leash, but he is still learning not to pull. He loves to sniff and explore a lot, but is also responsive to any command to move along. What he really absolutely adores is watching those action filled squirrels. If you even say the word squirrel, he'll get super attentive and look around to find those silly squirrels. He loves being outside and exploring and sniffing everything. If you have a yard where he can chase squirrels, he would be over the moon. Nothing drives him crazier than a squirrel in sight! He will chase them like crazy.

Hawk never jumps on the bed or sofa and knows that's not his space. He would thrive in a low-traffic and calm home with a yard where he can run and chase those squirrels he loves.

Come meet this sweet boy!
