Hoppie was found as a stray in a small Texan town. A kind man named Mr. Richard was known in the community for providing food and shelter to unwanted dogs. When Mr. Richard became terminally ill, his dying wish was to find a safe place for his largely unsocialized pack. HUA caregivers drove for many hours in dangerous weather to the humble home where the dogs had been left. It took the entire day to round up the very scared and confused pups, but finally they made their way back to the HUA shelter. Volunteers and caregivers spent several month socializing these precious animals, and finally they are ready to find homes of their own. Hoppie is darn close to being the perfect canine companion. He is very handsome and so sweet, following humans around wanting love and attention. He is a lovely gentleman that rarely barks, never jumps, and walks superbly on his leash. Hoppie adores lazing around in the pool on hot days, then will saunter about the yards checking things out. This dog is just wonderful. A home of his own would make him the happiest boy on Earth.
