2 year old • Male • 48 lbs
HamHam has red-brown fur with a mostly black face. His ears sometimes speak for him—maybe a short play—sometimes up and sometimes down! He has clear brown eyes with pretty eyelashes.
HamHam is an active young dog who, although an adult, has the energy of and many characteristics of a puppy. He needs to live in a house with a fenced yard so he can get his zoomies out, and ideally, with an active person/family who will take him for long walks daily. HamHam is friendly to people and other dogs (generally, dogs similar to his size or larger). He may need few minutes to warm up, but then he will generously give lots of kisses and hugs. Every morning he will greet you with his big smiles and asking for belly rubs. His tail swings happily whenever he sees his people!
HamHam runs gorgeously and amazingly fast. He is good on leash and enjoys fetch games. HamHam is very playful and would be fine with kids older than 10.
HamHam loves snuggling on the couch by your side while you settle in with your favorite TV shows or read. (He's especially fond of watching the dogs on César Millán's Dog Whisperer show.)
Have I mentioned that how much fun it is to train him? He is brilliant and food-motivated and is now bilingual: English and Mandarin. He learned Sit and Shake immediately! HamHam is house-trained and crate-trained, although he will expect delicious treats before he enters his crate!
HamHam is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
HamHam was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter.
