If you want a fur buddy who's glued to you, this sweet, mellow boy is your dream come true. Mr. Hudson will love to be near you all day, getting your attention - and your scratches and petting. He'll also be very excited to meet your friends and relatives, and when he goes on his walks, he has to stop and say hello to everyone he sees. He's such a people lover!

Now in foster care, this cute boy is having fun rolling around in the grass, then he sneezes and jumps up to come over to his people and say Hi. Indoors, he'll do the same - rolling on his back on the carpet and just lying there to enjoy being upside down. If he's feeling needy, he'll snuggle his head in his foster's lap and wait for some love. He also loves to chew toys and go for two daily walks.

Hudson is a gentle, curious boy who gets excited when he meets other dogs, those he sees on walks and meets when visiting his foster's family. He relaxes and enjoys their company. He's also very nice with kids he meets, accepting their pets. He's curious and playful with his foster's cat, a bit more than the kitty wants. He's a very well-behaved boy who comes when called and understands "no." And he's a house-trained boy who freely roams the house and does well when his fosters are away.

This friendly boy will love to move in with parents who are home a lot and can take him for those fairly short walks and car rides he loves. He'll be happy as the only pet, but will enjoy a dog buddy to play with. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet this lovable boy!
